In the 1850s, Ulysses S. Grant began farming this land, which is now a tourist attraction and a home to many exotic and endangered animals. This farm offers visitors many activities, from touring the land and seeing the animals to attending the shows and dining or browsing for souvenirs in the gift shop. Anheuser-Busch owns the farm, which is home to the Clydesdale stables, a herd of deer and other animals. Grant's Station and Grant's Cabin are two of the major attractions on the tour. Admission is free.
It is just a great place to visit. Very inexpensive and so much history to learn and its done in a fun way. All the workers are very happy pleasent and willing to help you with anything. I had seen it 12 years ago and loved it then so we went back with the kids and they loved it and they are 18 and 13. The shows are fun to watch the trainers put in alot of time and effort into those animals you can tell. if you are in the St.louis area this is a must see attraction. If we lived there i would go once a year to that place.
This is one of my favorite places. It seems like everyone is always raising thieir prices. Gant's Farm offers a relaxing enviroment with plenty to do at an wextremly affordable price. There are no admissions fees. It is just $11 to park your car. Inside the park there is a train ride that takes you through the park and you get to see several various animals roaking the grouds. Inside the park there are shows, a carousel, beer tasting, food venue, snowcones, and more animals that you can actually hand feed. The staff are verry helpful and friendly. THe area is beautiful and very relaxing. I would recommend this to anyone with or without kids. There is something for everyone and it is a lot of fun.
First you can see the Budweiser Clydesdales which is very well kept from stall to pasture. The you take a tram around some pastures where you can barely see any animals but you get to see a couple of old buildings that Grant lived in at one time. Next you enter a petting zoo environment but you can only pet on exhibit. Overall, It was not worth the time.
We visit Grants farm every year. What a wonderful place to stroll around !!! Can't beat the price, only have to pay for parking. The park is always so clean. Thumbs up to all who work at Grants Farm !! You all are the best.

Our visit with our Grandson was different than the past, in that parking was raised to $11.00 and the food prices were also higher, much higher. As we are on fixed income, we found that these increases were not well thought-out, with the economy the way it is. Our Zoo membership is much more valuable than we thought and much more reasonable in pricing. We will frequent the Zoo more often.
It has a wide variety of animals (some of which you can feed). We especially loved feeding the goats although they can get a little rough when they are hungry. (head butting and climbing on you). And even though we managed to visit on the hottest day of the month, there was PLENTY of shade which was wonderful!!! my favorite part was seeing the Clydesdale horses. the babys where so cute and we even got to pet them ! most of this park is a tram ride .
Over many years my family have loved spending a weekend day at Grant's Farm. My boys have grown up to love riding the trams and seeing all the aminals in the open areas, visiting and petting the other amimals, and watching the shows.
However, my family is wondering what happened to the Civil War Living History days at Grants Farm? For the past several years, my sons and I have visited the farm over the Mother's Day weekend and completely enjoyed the Civil War Camp, seeing and talking with General Grant, looking into the Ladies Tent, and watching the Blacksmith work and touring the Grant's home, Hardscrabble. We went this year and there was not such program--this was a large disappoitment to my children. Grant's Farm is such a wonderful family place, please bring back this important part of history (Civil War Days) for St. Louis.
I had been to Grant's Farm about 15 years ago and didn't really remember much about it. We took our son on our summer vacation and he absolutely LOVED it!!! He was 2 when we went. His favorite part was the goats that he got to feed with a bottle. I would recommend this to anyone. The clydesdales are absolutely beautiful and everyone there is so friendly! Plus it's only $11 to park and it's free to get in!!
My husband, daughters and I LOVED it here! It has a wide variety of animals (some of which you can feed). We especially loved feeding the goats although they can get a little rough when they are hungry. (head butting and climbing on you). And even though we managed to visit on the hottest day of the month, there was PLENTY of shade which was wonderful!!! My youngest daughter's favorite part was seeing the Clydesdale horses. One sad fact was a lady from St. Louis was telling us-since Anheuser-Busch got bought out, starting in August they are only going to have the farm open on weekends. This would truly be a shame, especially if it would mean the end of such a wonderful place. We are hoping this was just a rumor, but if it is true, everyone needs to take the opportunity to go see Grant's farm while it is still there.
