“I love watching the glee and utter amazement in the eyes of our guests, admiring the animals and natural beauty of Grant's Farm.”

Born and raised in St. Louis, I am the second youngest of Gussie and Trudy Busch’s seven children. Growing up at Grant’s Farm instilled a deep appreciation for animals and farming in me. For more than 20 years, I managed Grant’s Farm and the Clydesdale operations.

There I learned the hard work and joys of ranch life, from working the land to raising and caring for hundreds of animals to cultivating a place where friends and family could gather.

Today, my wife Kim and I carry on our Midwest traditions at Folded Hills, our Santa Barbara winery and ranch where we grow and produce award-winning, organic wines sold throughout the country. Following in my dad’s footsteps, we foster a lifestyle that celebrates family, quality food and wine, welcoming hospitality, and a come as you are mentality.

Our four children spent their early childhood growing up at Grant’s Farm, just like I did. We continue to visit St. Louis frequently and enjoy celebrating family milestones at Grant’s Farm, including the christening of all three grandchildren at St. Hubert’s Chapel.

My wife and I are the co-founders of the Andrew D. Busch Family Foundation, an organization dedicated to promoting excellence in education, the environment, military, first responders, and service to the community.
