Grant's Farm Hosts Food Drive on July 18
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), July 8, 2015 - Grant's Farm is partnering with the St. Louis Area Foodbank to raise awareness of those in need of food assistance in the St. Louis community.
On Saturday July 18, from 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., Grant's Farm will host a food drive where guests are invited to bring canned or packaged food to the farm. For every item donated, guests will receive $1 off parking, and there is no food donation limit. Once all food is collected, St. Louis Area Foodbank staff will deliver to the hungry in the St. Louis area.
The St. Louis Area Foodbank is the region's largest nonprofit food distribution center that feeds more 392,000 people throughout 26 counties in Missouri and Illinois. Children make up the largest segment of individuals needing food assistance, many of which rely on school meals throughout the year, making food donations in the summer months especially important.
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - Grant's Farm has opened for its 61st season of family fun with traditional family favorites as well as new activities including:
"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.
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.
