Visit :: Open To The Public

We Are Open To The Public Every Sunday!

Come hug a cow, feed a horse carrots, give a pig a tummy rub, cuddle a turkey, and enjoy a beautiful day at The Gentle Barn!

CA Sanctuary Public Hours
Sunday: 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m

We ask a $10.00 donation per person.

(Please check our voicemail in adverse weather at 661-252-2440).

To ensure that our smaller animals in our upper barnyard don't feel overstressed or overcrowded, we allow groups to go into the upper barnyard area at 11:00, 12:00, and 1:00 (times subject to change without notice) following a short presentation by our founder about how The Gentle Barn got started, what we do here during the week and our vision. 

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 front entrance on Sundays.

Address: Our CA sanctuary is located at: 15825 Sierra Highway

Out of respect for the animals, we kindly ask that you do not bring any dairy, egg, meat, poultry, or seafood onto the property.
