Featured Video: CBS Volunteer Week

In 2016, CBS featured The Gentle Barn in their “Volunteer Week” piece that features places people can go to volunteer. “Gentle Barn is a great place to help out if you love animals. Sandra Mitchell reports.” If you’re interested in volunteering, working with our animals, and being a part of our amazing community, come out and visit us this Saturday in Tennessee or this Sunday in California!

Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

At Tomato Joe’s, we’ve had the privilege of seeing the bounty of Ellie and Jay’s important work blossom over the
years and we’re as excited as ever to watch their heart-warming story continue. We discovered The Gentle Barn
years ago when local food developer Angel McNall was working with our newly opened pizza shop developing her
amazing Vegan cheese that would ultimately become known to all as Follow Your Heart Mozzarella. After we
introduced the first Vegan pizza in SCV, we really had to fight hard to keep that dream going. It was the Gentle
Barn’s support and partnership that gave us the impetus to keep the dream alive in those challenging early days.
Ellie and Jay are such passionate and committed souls, and their mission is unequivocally improving our World,
one beautiful creature at a time! We are most proud sponsors and friends of The Gentle Barn.
