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

"Because Animals is a small company with a big mission: to create nutritious pet food without ever harming any animals or the environment. We believe that factory farming has no place in pet nutrition, which is why all of Because Animals' products are made without slaughtering animals. "

"Our ultimate goal is to end the raising and slaughtering of farmed animals to feed our pets.
Until we get to that point, we are so very grateful there are sanctuaries like The Gentle Barn’s three locations to give refuge to abused, tormented, neglected and suffering animals who deserve so much more from the world."

~Dr. Shannon Falconer, CEO, Because Animals
