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.
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.
If it weren't for the fact it's free I wouldn't go back. Since it's owned by Budweiser people thier name is everywhere! You can't buy a single thing from the gift store w/o it saying Beer this and beer that. Not to mention even though it's a National Historic Site (That's why it's Grant's Farm) you can't tour Hardscabble. There is no info of the Grant side of it unless you want to spend money on a private tour! They have also turn it into a place to where all they try to do is sell you beer! I mean the entire grounds have been turned into a Zoo! And not a very good one. My advice, try it once then stay away. Grant's Farm is not want they say!
I THINK GRANT'S FARM IS A GREAT PLACE TO TAKE OUT OF TOWN VISITORS.
IT'S NOT EVERY DAY THAT YOU CAN FEED A CAMEL.
I ALSO LIKE IT BECAUSE IT IS FREE. YOU HAVE TO PAY TO PARK, BUT THAT ISN'T BAD.
EVERYONE IS SO NICE THERE, TOO.
My family and I go to Grant's Farm at least once a year. The whole experience is great. We enjoy the cyldesdales, the staff, the shows, the train, the animals, everything. The whole place is clean, it's just a fantastic place to go.
It is like a Zoo, but a lot more hands on. You can feed camels, baby goats, and other furry and exotic animals. They have a host of animals that are literally inches from you during the tram ride. It's a lot of fun, especially for kids. If you haven't had the baby goats chew on your clothes while feeding them, then you're not from St. Louis.
surroundings cleanliness helpful employees family atmosphere it was an extremely hot day when we were there. the shade made it much more enjoyable. the grandchildren were having so much fun seeing thr animals and the ride thru the park.
