I like the work they do to save abused animals and then have foster and troubled youth come spend time relating. A healing experience for abused and neglected children. As a tour it's fine and I like supporting the organization, however I felt the staff really pushes the vegan agenda. Also know that on a really hot day, it is... More

There are sometimes special events there do check out their website or a Facebook page in advance. There weren't any special... More

The Barn is a wonderful place. I have just finished Ellie's book and it was so inspirational. I wish every animal had a Gentle Barn to live in. I live on the east coast but I am going back to visit very soon.

It was really rewarding to feel like you are contributing to the well being of a saved animal, and so many of them were so nice. However, some of the staff were kind of pretentious and suggested that if you were to eat meat, that it is inhumane. Some farms treat their livestock with respect and should be acknowledged by...

A very special place that everyone can enjoy. It's an accessible, welcoming and loving place where the rescue is not just animals living there, but for all the urban dwellers who visit.

The Gentle Barn gives visitors a chance to view many different types of farm animals while contributing to a great cause. The animals have all been rescued and are now well cared for by dedicated volunteers. Just know, if you intend to read the signs with the history of the various residents, bring plenty of tissues.

The Gentle Barn is located north of the busy city of Los Angeles and is a real change of place for city dwellers who rarely, if ever, have contact with farm animals. The Gentle Barn is real treat for any child or adult who craves a change from the big city. The Gentle Barn takes in abused and neglected farm... More

The Gentle Barn is one of my favorite Los Angeles area discoveries in 2012. It is an organization that takes in abused and neglected farm animals and gives them a place to live out their life that is filled with love and respect. The barn is open to the public on Sundays 10-2pm for a suggested ten dollar donation. It's... More
