Grant's Farm

Grant's Farm, the former homestead of President Ulysses S. Grant, is the only house still standing that was hand-built and occupied by a U. S. president.
It is also the ancestral home of the Busch family of the Anheuser-Busch brewery and one of the Budweiser Clydesdale breeding and training facilities. More than 1,000 animals from six continents live in the 281-acre wildlife preserve on the property.
Visitors can travel by tram through the wildlife preserve and then visit the Tier Garten area which has a petting zoo, animal exhibits and shows and the Bauernhof courtyard complex, a 19th century farmstead with stables and a carriage house.


Highlights:

The Deer Park is home to animals from six continents.
The carriage house in the Bauernhof contains the Busch family's carriage collection with vehicles dating back to the 1700's.
Visitors can see some of the famous Clydesdales now synonymous with Anheuser-Busch, and some of the awards they've won in the Clydesdale Stables.
Visitors can feed the goats, camels and other animals in the Tier Garten.

Especially for Kids
Children will especially enjoy the ride through the animal preserve and the petting zoo and goat-feeding area in the Tier Garten. Also of interest are the animal shows held in the Tier Garten area and the Clydesdale/Dalmatian shows held in the stable area.

Location: Just south of the city of St. Louis.
