GRANT'S FARM OPENS - 2015 SEASON
The Budweiser Clydesdales are groomed, the trams are ready to go and the baby goats are hungry, which means one thing: Grant’s Farm is ready for its 61st season of family fun!
On Saturday, April 11 Grant’s Farm will open with new activities and traditional family favorites.
New for 2015, Grant’s Farm guests can saddle up on trainer-led pony rides for $5. Families can also enjoy after-hours fun as Grant’s Farm screens “Family Flicks” every Friday night in June in the Bauernhof. The outdoor movie experience costs $15 for adults and $10 for children ages 2-10, and includes a hot dog, chips, popcorn and beverage, and beer for guests 21 and older. Admission is free for kids ages 2 and younger.
“For more than 60 years Grant’s Farm has provided St. Louisans with a unique, family-friendly atmosphere, making it a beloved local attraction,” said Andy Elmore, general manager of Grant’s Farm. “This year we’re excited to welcome back visitors for another great season of fun, helping generations of guests make memories that last a lifetime.”
Grant’s Farm favorites like tram rides, baby goat feedings, behind-the-scenes Budweiser Clydesdales tours and live animal shows will be available for the 2015 season. Camel rides and parakeet feedings are also back by popular demand. As always, guests 21 and older can enjoy complimentary samples of Anheuser-Busch beers.
Grant’s Farm will continue to offer once-daily Estate Walk Tours, which showcase the grounds of the Busch family estate while guides share details on the rich history of the property. Tours are available at 9 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday and at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday for $25 per person.
“It’s a joy to maintain a piece of St. Louis history and, at the same time, find new ways to keep the farm fun and interesting for our guests,” said Elmore. “Offering visitors memorable, family-friendly experiences is our top priority.”
Grant’s Farm is located at Gravois and Grant roads in southwest St. Louis County. Admission to the farm is complimentary, and reservations are not required. Grant’s Farm is stroller and wheelchair accessible, and rentals are available. Parking is $12 per car and $30 for buses, RVs and oversized vehicles. Guests can pick up season parking passes for $40 at the General’s Store.
