Fall Fest at Grants Farm is happening Saturdays and Sundays in October! Visitors of all ages will enjoy fun Fall activities such as pumpkin decorating, eating kettle corn and pretzels, and of course all the animal shows and the carousel rides. Reserve your parking pass now! Upgrade experiences are available. See website for more info.
Grant's Farm is the ancestral home of the Busch family, of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery fame, but takes its name from President Ulysses S. Grant who had a farm on part of the property in the 1850s. His log cabin, Hardscrabble, is still on the property. Visitors can ride a tram through the 281-acre wildlife preserve or attend live animal shows featuring exotic birds and elephants. Children enjoy the petting area where they can hand-feed and pet the farm's pygmy goats. Visitors also enjoy sitting in the lovely courtyard of the beautiful 19th century Bauernhof where they can purchase soft drinks, bratwursts, pretzels and, of course, a sample a variety of Budweiser beers!
