A Setting for All Seasons

The 470-acre Meramec Farm is located on a bend of the beautiful, spring-fed Meramec River. It's truly a setting for all seasons--meadows graced with wildflowers in the spring, summer respites in cool caves within the towering Vilander bluffs, wooded hillsides splashed with autumn's red, orange and gold, and winter's intimate stillness after a snowfall. No matter what the season, Meramec Farm is a place for peace and discovery, far away from the pressures of everyday life.


For Trail Riding Enthusiasts...

Meramec Farm is horse friendly.  With advance notice, guests may bring their own horses. Many special rides are available on gaited breeds, on our farm and nearby farms and trails. We have Missouri Fox Trotter, Tennessee Walker and Peruvian Paso breeds for your trailriding enjoyment. Carol will help make the arrangements and is often available to lead the tour. 


A Peaceful & Comfy Retreat

Activities that Celebrate the Seasons

At Meramec Farm, spring inspires leisurely walks amid wildflowers, picnics, and afternoons spent fishing in the stocked ponds or river. Summer means canoeing and swimming in the clear, cool water of the Meramec, or spelunking in nearby caves. Autumn's dazzling weather invites hiking and bicycling. And winter offers cross-country skiing and ice skating.

Miles of trails climb the rugged bluffs and wooded hills, cross open fields and follow the rivers course. The high panoramas and river views are magnificent!

Abundant Wildlife & Friendly Farm Animals

Wildlife abounds at Meramec Farm. The woods are home to wild turkey, white-tailed deer and many other native Missouri animals. Great Blue Herons nest in the sycamores. Bass and trout flourish in the Meramec River and nearby streams. Since Meramec Farm is a working farm, animals considerably less wild are usually about, much to the delight of children and guests of all ages who visit the farm. Grazing cattle, frolicking calves, horses, foals, mules, chickens, cats and dogs make their home here. Guests are invited to take the ever-popular cow tour--a ride into the herds to see and feed the cattle.


A Working Family Farm

Meramec Farm has been welcoming guests since 1982. But its been a working farm since 1811, when William Harrison left Kentucky, swam his cattle across the Mississippi and started his new farm on the Meramec River.  During its more than 180 years, Meramec Farm has remained in the same family. Today, the sixth and seventh generations of that family, raise cattle and hay, proudly continuing the family farm tradition.
