"My Gentle Barn"

We anticipated that people who had visited The Gentle Barn and love our animals would want to read our founders book, My Gentle Barn, but now people who did not know about the Gentle Barn before reading the book are coming to visit us for the first time. It is so exciting to meet them, hear their stories, and introduce them to our furry family! The book just came out and we are already getting visits from all over the country. We love it!

Our founder enjoys being out in the barnyard, snuggling or reading, so she has been reading parts of her book to the animals. Who are you reading My Gentle Barn with? Send us pictures to photo@gentlebarn.org

Ellie will be at The Gentle Barn every Sunday from 10-2 looking forward to meeting you and signing your copy of the book. Hope to see you all 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.
