Grant's Farm Visit - June 6, 2007

Real Estate Agent with Platinum Realty 1999090686

Yesterday, I visited Grant's Farm with my friend Kim.  She owns a licensed day care, and she was taking the children on a field trip.  Eight children under the age of 6 - what an adventure!  Kim does such a great job with the kids, and they were so well behaved.  Strangers even commented on how good they were.  We had a great time.  The tram ride took us on a tour around the property to see all the animals.  Then we walked around to see more animals. 

We fed the baby goats.  I went with 6 of the kids into the pen to feed them with baby bottles.  Kim stayed outside with the two infants.  I won't do that again.  The goats crowded us, knocking the kids down to get to the bottles.  I told them to just push the goats away, as I was doing; Hanna was brave enough to do it, but the boys began crying.  So, one-by-one, I handed the kids over the fence to Kim, as the goats were chewing on my shorts legs.  We finished feeding the goats through the fence...

After that, we had a picnic lunch in Whitecliff Park, played some ball, and then loaded up to come home.  Kim said they all had a really good afternoon nap after all the excitement of the morning...

Grant's Farm, the 281-acre ancestral home of the Busch family, is located just south of the city of St. Louis. The Farm is home to more than 1,000 animals representing more than 100 different species from six continents. Grant's Farm, operated by Anheuser-Busch, Inc., has been a St. Louis tradition for over five decades. More than 24 million guests have visited this popular family attraction during its history.

The Farm takes its name from our 18th President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant. In the 1850s, Grant founded and farmed a portion of the 281 acres. Today, this land is home to Grant's Farm and is preserved as a living symbol of the Busch family's love for animals and Anheuser-Busch's commitment to wildlife conservation and preservation. Admission to Grant's Farm is free to all ages, but you do have to pay for parking ($8.00 per car).  Reservations are not required.
