Have you ever been to Grant’s Farm? If you live in St. Louis my guess is yes but if you haven’t or want to see the new things they have brought to the farm for the summer then you need to mark a day on your calendar to go!
Grant’s Farm is home to more than 900 animals representing more than 100 different species. The farm, operated by Anheuser-Busch, Inc., has been a St. Louis tradition for over five decades. Guests can enjoy attractions like riding the tram, feeding baby goats, behind-the-scenes Clydesdale tours, Camel rides, a candy shop featuring sweet treats from local confectioners, or one of the many free animal shows in the Tier Garten.
Last week we were able to enjoy a fun day at Grant’s Farm! We started on the tram and enjoyed the ride to Tier Garten. On the tram we learned about all of the animals on the way and of course the kids were in awe of the deer, elk and birds that were standing next to us during our drive.
Once we arrived to our destination we enjoyed feeding the goats, the carousel, a camel ride, checking out all of the animals and we really wanted to attend the elephant show but didn’t have time (so that’s scheduled for our next trip – next week per my kids scheduling). We were also able to attend the special Clydesdale Experience. If you love Clydesdales, want to learn more and enjoy a special event on the farm then this is will make a great addition to your trip.
If it’s your first time to Grant’s Farm or if you haven’t been in awhile then here are a few Grant’s Farm Insider Tips:
-Don’t forget Grant’s Farm is closed on Mondays. Tuesday tends to be the lightest day for visitors, making it a great option for enjoying short lines and up-close access to the animals.
-Be sure to buy the Fun Park Pass! At just $5 each, these passes are a bargain and include a snow cone, carousel ride and 2 bottles of milk to feed the baby goats.
-Take advantage of an earlier tram ride to see more animals. As the day grows warmer, the animals tend to move to shaded areas and are harder to see.
-Believe it or not, Grant’s Farm knows how to keep cool when the summer heats up. The farm has cooling misters scattered throughout, so don’t be afraid to visit on a hot day.
-Traveling with little ones? Not a problem! Feel free to bring your strollers – the tram will even transport them for you. Please note that wagons are not permitted on the farm, but Grant’s Farm rents strollers if you need one.
-If you want a behind-the-scenes Clydesdale tour, be sure to book in advance. These tours are a popular new attraction at Grant’s Farm and tend to fill up quickly! Visit www.GrantsFarm.com to register for your tour.
