Grant's Farm Closes Season with Toys for Tots Drive
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), November 18, 2014 - Grant's Farm will open its gates one last time in 2014 for a Toys for Tots drive on Saturday, December 6, from 4 - 7 p.m., on the parking lot at 10501 Gravois Rd.
Guests can join the celebration by bringing an unwrapped toy or donation to the event, hosted at the Clydesdales Stables. Bring your camera to take holiday photos with a Budweiser Clydesdale and Marines in full dress. Military vehicles will be parked onsite for exploring, and guests can interact with some of Grant's Farm's small animals.
Those who make monetary or toy donations will receive a free pretzel voucher to redeem at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery Biergarten (valid through April 30, 2015) as well as the opportunity to win special door prizes. Beverages and snacks will be available for purchase along with complimentary Budweiser samples for guests 21 and older.
All collected toys will be loaded into a military vehicle and delivered to the less fortunate in the St. Louis community this holiday season.
The last Toys for Tots drive at Grant's Farm, hosted in 2012, collected more than 500 toys for children in need.
Almost a century ago, August A. Busch Jr.'s father purchased a piece of Missouri farmland once plowed and planted by Ulysses S. Grant. Today, the country estate of the Busch family, Grant's Farm, is preserved as a home for more than 1,000 exotic animals from six continents.
The beautiful oasis can be seen courtesy of Anheuser-Busch, Inc. An open-air Eisenbahn coach winds past Mirror Lake to Grant's Cabin, which was completed in 1856 and remains today as the only structure hand built by an American president. The fence across from the cabin was constructed from 2,563 rifle barrels as a Civil War memorial.
The coach travels through The Deer Park where more than 100 species of bison, elk and antelope to zebras, llamas and ostriches can be seen. You can pet and hand feed some of the animals and attend the entertaining, educational shows featuring African elephants, parrot and birds of prey at the Tier Garten Amphitheater. Admission is free. Bring your camera and take home special memories.
Grant's Farm is home to a breeding operation for the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales. The tour features an opportunity to see the Clydesdale sires, mares and foals up-close in their pastures next to the Clydesdale Stable.
Admission to Grant's Farm, tram rides and all shows is complimentary.
