Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

You will get to hug and brush the cows, give the pig's tummy rubs, cuddle with a turkey, hold a chicken, and hear the animals stories of resilience and so much more. Enjoy a beautiful day during The Gentle Barn's open to the public hours Sunday's between 11am-1pm. You may arrive at anytime but before 1pm. Please note: this is not a private experience.

There is a gift shop with Gentle Barn merchandise like logo'd t-shirts, mugs, hats, plush animals etc. There is a snack shop that offers delicious plant based snacks and drinks. There is a wonderful presentation about how Ellie (our founder) started The Gentle Barn in the arena, but most important is lots of time with the animals.

The Gentle Barn is an experience that you won't soon forget!
Other things to note:
Out of respect for the animals, we kindly ask that you do not bring any dairy, egg, meat, poultry, or seafood onto the property. The Gentle Barn is an outdoor farm environment, therefore we strongly recommend all visiting guests wear long pants, closed-toe shoes, a hat, and plenty of sunscreen.

Ellie and Jay are the Founders of The Gentle Barn founded in 1999, a national organization that is home to hundreds of animals and has hosted over 500,000 visitors. Ellie and Jay both struggled as children and were strengthened and inspired by the love of animals. With their first hand knowledge of the healing power of animals, Ellie and Jay wanted to dedicate the rest of their lives by paying it forward, saving animals and healing people. They love animals so much that they've been vegan for 20yrs and work hard everyday to instill that same passion for nature and animals and the hearts of the people that visit. Ellie and Jay would love to invite you to come experience the healing energy and wonderful animals of The Gentle Barn.

Came here with my partner and had a great time! Fulfilled my dream of hugging a cow. It was also very therapeutic. The animals are very well taken care of, even eating better than I am sometimes! We both loved it!

I want to say that I loved every person involved—-the Gentle Barn workers were wonderful!!! I booked this from Air BnB and it seemed like there were going to be a lot of hands on animal experiences. There were animals mentioned that weren’t actually there (they were at the other locations, which I didn’t realize.) The people were great, but feeding the animals was just paying $5 for a baggie of 10 chunks of carrot to feed to the donkeys (which I loved, by that way) and that was about it. We were able to pet the bulls, a turkey, a huge pig, a sheep and a goat. I look at it as a charitable donation, so I wasn’t angry, but if you’re looking for active interaction with animals, you may be disappointed. If you’re looking to support the cause and see a couple animals along the way-definitely sign up.

This was an amazing experience! The property was beautiful. The staff were warm and welcoming. The animals stole the show! I felt so calm and relaxed after wondering around for several hours petting them. So glad we did this!!!!

My kids and I loved the visit. The cows are so sweet and gentle. All the staff were friendly and took great care to ensure the welfare of the animals.

The gentle barn is a magical experience. I left feeling so at peace with myself and with nature. The animals are wonderful, and it’s clear that they are very loved and well-cared for. It’s outside, so plan for dirt, but it is not physically demanding. I’d recommend this highly for any animal-lovers and families with children.
