“Better every time!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

This was our second time visiting. It was better this time. Not that last time wasn't that great. The place is well-kept and the staff are very helpful and friendly. We will visit Grant's Farm again and again.

“Great morning with the kiddos!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

Grants Farm is a wonderful place to spend a few hours with your children. It is small enough to be manageable but plenty large enough to keep the kids interested and amazed the whole time. Parking is $12 but entry into the park is free. Once you enter you board a tram that winds you through the park. There is a guide that gives you a run down of the history and tells you about all of the animals that you pass. At the end of the tram you enter the main part of the park where you can feed and touch all kinds of animals. It ends with free beer. How can you go wrong! We always get there when the park opens in the morning to beat the crowd.

“The Clydesdale Experience is Fabulous”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Grant's Farm is a great place for smaller kids. Lots of room for them to run and play. The exotic animals are also a hit.

But the real reason to come for us older folks are the Budweiser Clydesdales. You can see them for no additional charge or you can take an in depth tour for $25 per person. The tour lasted for 2 hours and our guide Gwen was extremely knowledgeable. You learn their history and get an understanding of how well cared for these horses are. At the end they bring out one of the horses and you can groom him and take photos (No need to pay for a photo at the entrance). The experience is new and I did feel they were working out the kinks. We tried to book on line and the site said the tours were full. I called to find out what we could see without the tour and was told we could still book. So if you want to take the tour it may be worth calling to make your booking. All in all this was a wonderful experience and if you have the time this is a must do.

“great outdoor activity for the budget minded”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

A nice place to visit with children or special needs individuals. The park like area is well kept and has plenty of sights for all types of individuals. They have little presentations or shows to keep you entertained as well as the goat feeding, which is a must. Just make sure you are ok with a little goat p--p on your clothes if you go in. We went early before the crowd got bigger. You can't beet the price. Just parking. Oh yah, don't forget to see the Clydesdales across parking lot.

“Grani's farm a wonderful vista for history junkies and fun for others”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We picked up our college aged children from school for summer break and took a side trip on the way home. We were surprised with this attraction and the wonderful amount of American history we discovered as well as the beautiful zoo of exotic animals. I suggest this is a must see.
