Teaching People Kindness and Compassion to Animals, Each Other and our Planet.

Inside Scoop: Brian in California

I knew as a child that I loved animals, but was never consciously aware that I was selfishly choosing which ones to love. I ended up adopting a meat free diet two years ago and on my first visit to Gentle Barn, I learned an important life lesson. The lesson being that ALL animals deserve the chance to love, be loved and live free from fear. As a volunteer in the cow barn, I am afforded the opportunity to let people look into those beautiful and soul filled cow eyes, while gently encouraging them to change the habit of looking at animals as food. Volunteer work is never actually work at all. It is however; a true pleasure and a treasure to be allowed to be part of such a loving Gentle Barn family. The family of animals and humans alike.

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.
