Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

We have chosen to work with The Gentle Barn over the years because we have been able to personally see how much love, care and dedication Ellie and Jay’s team give to their mission. I really feel like they are kindred spirits, and I am always so proud to be a part of anything they do. It is rare for people to have an opportunity to look a cow in the eyes, give it a hug and see that this is a sentient being. It is meaningful work. --Brook Harvey-Taylor
