: Malabar Farm, shown in this photograph, was the home of Ohio author, farmer, and conservationist Louis Bromfield. Bromfield (1896-1956) received the Pulitzer Prize for his book Early Autumn in 1927 and wrote 30 best-selling books during his 32-year literary career. In 1939, he created his dream, Malabar Farm, where he could demonstrate sound soil and water conservation practices and teach others about sustainable agriculture.
The Friends of the Land was a conservation society formed in March 1940 as a non-profit, non-partisan, independent organization supported entirely by its members. It worked with all government and private agencies to support, increase, and unify all efforts for the control and wise use of rain, soil, and all living products. View on Ohio Memory.
