Grants Farm

Grants Farm is a 19th century farm stead courtesy of Anheuser-Busch - a free family friendly activity. Grants farm was purchased in 1903 by August Busch Sr. It was once planted and plowed by President Ulysses S. Grant. It was opened to the public in 1954.

This is Ulysses S. Grant's log cabin. It even has a cool fence made from Civil War rifles!
We went to see the Budweiser Clydesdale's.

Mylan tried to feed the goats a bottle of milk but those little animals are strong and pretty much attack you once they smell the milk!
Here are a few of the other animals around the farm.

The elephant show was really fun!

Mylan was one of the kids chosen to compete in a balloon blowing contest. The elephant won!

At the end of the show the elephant gave us a little bow.

Mr. Turtle...
