Turkey Cuddles

Over the last few weeks The Gentle Barn has been packed with visitors from all over the world who have come to cuddle with the turkeys. Grown ups and children alike have sat on the ground, put one leg on each side of the turkey, kissed their pink heads, whispered secrets in the ears, put their hands under the turkeys wings to scratch them and have been delighted when the turkeys have sat down and fallen asleep in their laps. More and more people are discovering that turkeys are more like gentle, feathered dogs: just as affectionate and smart. Have you cuddled a turkey? If not, come on by any Sunday from 10-2, you'll love it!

Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

At Beyond Meat, we started with simple questions. Why do you need an animal to create meat? Why can't you build meat directly from plants? It turns out you can. So we did. We hope our plant-based meats allow you and your family to eat more, not less, of the traditional dishes you love, while feeling great about the health, sustainability, and animal welfare benefits of plant protein. Together, we can truly bring exciting change to the plate — and beyond.
