Grant's Farm, Saint Louis

(4.5/5 based on 1,400 reviews on the web)
See a typical 19th-century Bavarian farmstead, visit animals, and watch them perform at Grant's Farm, a top family attraction. Catch a free tram with a narrated tour to reach the heart of the farm. Along the way, you'll visit a deer park and see numerous species in their habitats. More than 900 animals live at the site, among which are Budweiser Clydesdale horses, buffalos, elephants, camels, and kangaroos. Kids can feed and play with baby goats, and ride carousels. But remember this, the baby goats can be a handful sometimes. Open to the public since 1954, the farm has been visited by more than 24 million tourists.

  • Grant's Farm is billed as a family attraction but I think it would be a great way for any person or group to spend a day. It's a nice property to walk around, the tram ride to learn about the history ...  more »

  • Grant's Farm is another activity in St Louis, like the Zoo, that baffles me that it's free. Parking may be $12, but for an admission price of $0, you get to walk around and check out animals and you even get two free beer samples at the biergarten. The activities that cost money are extremely cheap - feeding baby goats milk for example costs $1. They have free educational shows throughout the day. Grant's Farm is a great place to kill a few hours with friends and family.
  • The 281 acre estate of August "Gussie" Busch Jr. And his children. You start your tour taking a tram through the 160 acre deer park there you will see The historic home of Ulysses S. Grant which has been relocated to this property in the early 1900's one fence facing Gravois road-in front of the Cabin is made of 2,563 rifle barrels used in the Civil War.. There is a petting zoo, a bird show an elephant show, camels rides....you can feed baby goats, llamas and camels, even Parakeets!!! Make sure you eat a G&W Brat (made in South City)in the beer garden---with free samples of AB Beer!!! While your in the beer garden visit the Carriage house and see all of the Busch families historic carriages and equestrian awards!!! The King of Beers lived here!!! You can also visit the World Famous Budweiser Clydesdales in the big red barns on the edge of the parking lot. This is a St. Louis Gem, I was lucky enough to work there through my HS and college years- great experience.
  • It is free to get into Grant's Farm, but the parking is expensive. I have been there many times throughout my life and I still enjoy it. It is kept up great and the staff is friendly. I do not mind paying to get treats to feed the animals. The few shows they have are cute.
  • I hadn't been to Grant's Farm since I was a child. My parents and I took my 1-yr-old and 2-yr-old this year and they loved it. We will definitely be back next year. Wish the park was open more weekdays than only Friday in the fall, but I understand as most kids are back in school.
  • We went on a 101 degree day and had a great time. 3 adults and 2 kids (14 & 11 years old). It was very pleasant from the minute we pulled into the parking lot (the attendant gave us the suggestion to park at the end of the lot to visit the Clydesdale horses first) then enter the park and take the trolley ride through the park before it got too hot out. All of the employees were very helpful and pleasant, and the the exhibits and drinks were fun also. It took us about 2.5 hours to see everything we wanted to see including the elephant show, bird feeding and goat feeding.
