Happy Birthday Bingo!

Bingo turns 4 years old this month, yay!

Bingo was taken away from his mom when he was only a few weeks old and abandoned in someone’s yard. The residents of the property he was thrown into could not keep him and The Gentle Barn was contacted to help. Because he had so much…

"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…

A Happy Birthday

We sang Biscuit happy birthday last week and gave him a special piggy birthday cake made out of carrots, bananas, apples, molasses and nuts, made by two of our very special baking volunteers. There were a lot of visitors in the barnyard and, honestly, I was wondering if he would appreciate…

A Happy Ending

We found Belle a home this week and we are so happy! We drove her all the way to Newport Beach, about an hour and a half from The Gentle Barn, to become part of a loving family with two very sweet puppy dogs and another kitty friend. The pups loved her right away, but the other cat was not pleased with the…

Biscuit's Birthday

Wild pigs are very agile and strong and live about 20 years. Scientists have taken the DNA of the wild pig and genetically engineered it to create a man made animal designed to get very big, very fast to go to slaughter at 6 months old. By the time they are fully grown at 3 years old they are abnormally large and have an average life span…

Happy Birthday Biscuit!

Biscuit just turned eight years old this month, which is amazing for a farm pig who weighs one-thousand pounds!

People have taken the DNA of a wild pig and genetically engineered it to make a man made animal designed to get very big, very fast, so they can be slaughtered at six months old. When pigs…

What's New Kitty Cat?

This week we helped two abandoned kitties find a home. They were sad and lonely, but with a little Gentle Barn and Facebook magic they are now safe and sound in their forever homes and are as happy as can be.

We have one more to go (pictured above right). She is a young adult female who wants to be with you, follow you around,…

Gentle Barn Tours

Now that the weather is so beautiful, we have been hosting many private tours in the barnyard. We have tours of our main location or you can come to our Sun Chlorella Healing Center to meet our many cows and horses that live on The Gentle Barn second property. You can bring a large group…

Let me in

When I met her, she avoided my gaze and she had a cold, “stay out” expression on her face. She was showing me that she didn’t care about me, or my animals, or our place, or anything I had to say. “Duly noted,” I thought to myself.

When we all sat at the picnic tables and I asked the teens what word best described who they were and…

Milo

Milo was left alone in a backyard for nine whole years because his people got him as a gift and didn’t want him. When the couple got divorced, Milo was going to be sent to the pound but we found out just in time and brought him home to The Gentle Barn to be part of our family instead. Because he was left alone…

Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

No Evil Foods makes meat…from plants. Some people told us it couldn’t be done. We took that as a challenge and started a rebellious company that uses food as a force for good. In a world of unsustainable animal agricultural practices and highly processed meat alternatives, our small-batch plant-based meats challenge the status quo by using simple, sustainable ingredients to recreate a traditional protein experience that blows minds from coast to coast.

No Evil Foods was born from a belief in the power of an individual (in our case, two) to enact global change and we couldn't be more excited to put our purpose into practice through our support of The Gentle Barn. We strongly believe that each of us has the power and responsibility to repair the world by speaking up for the most vulnerable among us. Thanks to The Gentle Barn for creating a safe place where our farmed friends can find peace.
