The Gentle Barn Foundation is home to 170 animals rescued from abuse.

The Gentle Barn is host to abused children, kids recovering from substance abuse, kids on probation, foster kids, and children and adults with mental, emotional, and physical challenges.

Through the interaction with animals, the kids learn forgiveness, courage, strength, leadership skills, trust, empathy, and kindness. The healing that takes place when the kids get together with the animals is miraculous.

  • This is a great place to bring the kids or a date, barn animals that have been rescued and are now being taken care of at a sanctuary and treated the way they should be. Friendly animals and great staff make this a must see attraction.
  • Can't wait to go back. Great for all ages. Connect with rescued farm animals with a small entrance donation. Dress for dirt. Volunteers are awesome.
  • Learn, hug and feed.... Pretty much sums it up 🤗🐮🐎🐷🐐🦃🐔💖
  • Amazing petting zoo. You can pet Earl the Emu!
  • Very clean. The friendly animals are obviously well taken care of. Good place to bring the family for an hour or two.
