Spring At The Barn


At The Gentle Barn, spring brings exciting things growing in our vegetable garden, new leaves on the trees, butterflies and bees, pigs in the mud, and lots of field trips! Children of all ages, from Orange County, to Santa Barbara and everywhere in between, are coming out to enjoy The Gentle Barn and our rescued animals. They are hugging cows, giving pigs tummy rubs, cuddling turkeys, feeding horses, learning what they eat, where they sleep and how they play, and most of all they are learning to Be Gentle! If you have a little one, or even a big one at school, suggest to the teacher that they come out to The Gentle Barn for a field trip. It is a hands on and educational experience that will change the way children see themselves and the world around them. To book your field trip or private tour, call us at (661) 252-2440, or email us at info@gentlebarn.org or check us out at www.gentlebarn.org
See you out here soon!

Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

Miyoko's Creamery is leading the animal-free transformation of the dairy industry for the urgent salvation of the planet and all living beings. Made from organic, whole food ingredients with a complex flavor profile derived from fermentation and culturing, Miyoko's cheeses and butter have won the hearts and minds of cheese lovers with their compassionate approach to culinary dairy innovation.

Miyoko’s Creamery is thrilled to be sponsoring The Gentle Barn this month because we strongly believe that animals are to be loved not eaten. Thank you, Gentle Barn for providing refuge to these beautiful creatures and for drawing attention to the importance of sanctuary among species.
