Warm Springs Ranch, the 300-plus-acre breeding farm of the Budweiser Clydesdales in Boonville, Missouri, reopened to the public at a limited 30 percent of full capacity on April 15. Reservations are required and can now be booked at warmspringsranch.com. The facility will welcome guests and follow enhanced social distancing and safety guidelines to ensure a safe and pleasurable visit. Given the initial limited capacity of the farm, guests are encouraged to make advanced reservations for a guided walking tour or private VIP tour.
Both general tours and private VIP tours will be available Thursdays through Sundays from 9:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The 90-minute guided walking tours at Warm Springs Ranch are offered at $15 for all participants over 2 years of age and give participants an opportunity to talk with Clydesdale handlers; view the Clydesdale harness, trailer and 1903 beer wagon; and have pictures taken with a Clydesdale Stallion. Guests 21 and older also can sample free Budweiser beer on tap.
Private VIP tours are offered at $500 for a maximum of 16 guests and offer a tour of the grounds via a custom-built covered wagon, a private walking tour of the 25,000 square-foot breeding facility and interaction with the Clydesdales. Guests 21 and older also can sample free Budweiser beer on tap.
“We’re excited to bring this one-of-a-kind experience back to guests,” said Mark Boese, herd supervisor at Warm Springs Ranch. “We are confident that we have the right guidelines in place to offer a unique, fun and safe experience for our guests.”
Throughout the spring, Warm Springs Ranch will expand its capacity based on evolving safety guidelines, with the expectation of reaching full guest capacity by June.
