When you visit, we ask that you
do not bring in meat, poultry, fish or dairy foods onto the property out of
respect for the animals. On

And for our regular visitors,
consider a Season Pass. For just $50, you can get a season pass

Pass area for your picnic lunch. Get

Fall in love with the animals on
a private tour with Ellie, our founder.
Unlike Sundays, when you get the share the barnyard with hundreds of
wonderful people, during private tours, you get the barnyard pretty much
to yourself. Ellie will tell you
the stories that will melt your heart, and you can interact with the animals in
a relaxed and unstructured way.
There is nothing quite like it.
For private tours, we ask a $400 donation.
There are two ways that you can
have a party at The Gentle Barn, a Sunday party with the public or a private
Sunday parties are held during
our normal public hours (10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.) and you
can enjoy the animals and picnic area along with our other visitors. The
donation we ask for Sunday birthday parties is the same as all other Sunday
visitors, $10 per person.
When you have a private party at
The Gentle Barn you get to have the place pretty much to yourselves. There is
nothing quite like mingling among the animals when there are no distractions. For
a private party, we ask a donation of $400 dollars.
A visit to The Gentle Barn
provides children from any background a great opportunity to learn about farm
animals with their unique features and personalities. Scout troops, home school groups, school classrooms,
church groups or any other group of children are all welcome to have a field
trip here. We ask $10 per child
with a minimum commitment of $200 per visit.
