Malabar Farms

Soil, water and forests are the foundation not only of our national economy but of our very existence and civilization.” -Louis Bromfield

“The problem of soil and water conservation is our gravest and most fundamental national problem.”

“It is the duty of every citizen, for his own welfare, if for no other patriotic reason, to support and fight for and possibly initiate measures having to do with conservation of soil, water and forests.”

-Louis Bromfield
