Grant’s farm is located just off of Gravois Rd. in Grantwood Village, MO. It is a historic farm that was given to Ulysses S. Grant and his wife as a wedding present in 1848. The property is now owned by the Busch family who began Anheuser-Busch Brewing Company until they sold it to InBev in 2008. Grant’s Farm is an animal reserve now and is free to the public, but it does have a $15 fee to park your vehicle. It houses many animals and a tour is available of the grounds during the spring, summer and fall months via a train.
One of the major attractions is the Clydesdales horses that are housed there. The other animals that are housed at Grant’s Farm are buffalos, camels, kangaroos, donkeys, peacocks, antelope, and many others. Children love coming to Grant’s Farm because they get to see the animals close up and in a more natural environment compared to the St. Louis Zoo. The goal of the owners of Grant’s Farm is to keep the Farm free and open to the public.
