It was my birthday present from my husband to visit The Gentle Barn after a couple years of reading about it online. We were fortunate to meet the founder and her husband as well as very friendly staff. The work that is done there is truly a miracle on so many levels. go and visit and make a donation!

I brought my kids here a few years ago to see the horses, cows and other farm animals and fell I love with the place myself. They work very hard to keep the place clean and welcoming. The animals are healthy, well loved and taken care of. I know this because after that first visit I signed up as a... More

If you are in the area, you should visit The Gentle Barn. The owners and volunteer staff have done a wonderful job in taking care of the rescued animals - cows, pigs, horses, llamas, turkeys, chickens, donkeys. You get to hug a cow, feed the horses, pet the turkey. Listening to how the animals were rescued and what they have... More

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

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...
