The Gentle Barn - California

Come visit The Gentle Barn, located just 40 miles north of Los Angeles, California!

Come hug the cows, give the pigs tummy rubs, cuddle the turkeys, and enjoy a beautiful day at the Gentle Barn!

To ensure that our smaller animals in our upper barnyard don't feel stressed or overcrowded, we allow groups to go into the upper barnyard at 11:00, 12:00, and 1:00 (times subject to change without notice), after a presentation by our founder about how The Gentle Barn got started, what we do here during the week and our vision. And for our regular visitors, consider a Season Pass. For just $50, you can get a season pass and skip all the lines! No waiting to get in the front door and no waiting to get into the upper barnyard. You will also get free water and popcorn. Season passes can be purchased online or at the entrance on Sundays.

Come fall in love!

Jackie's Fund

A few years ago at The Gentle Barn, one of our office assistants took a call from a mother and daughter who had nowhere to go for Thanksgiving and couldn't afford to come to our Gentle Thanksgiving event. Before we learned about it, Jackie had paid out of her own pocket to help this family come to the event. Jackie didn't say anything about it to anyone and it would have gone unnoticed, had the woman not said something to us later at the event.

Jackie's generosity is the spirit of The Gentle Barn and what we are all reaching for here. So in Jackie's name we have decided to start a fund, to help pay for families to come share in the unconditional love and hope at The Gentle Barn, when they cannot afford to come. Please donate towards this fund and allow others the opportunity to experience the magic of The Gentle Barn who cannot afford it, so we can continue Jackie's legacy to help people come celebrate love and life with us!
