Mission: The Gentle Barn Foundation was established after a life-long dream of helping children and animals together. The goal is to teach people kindness and compassion towards animals, people and our planet. With the hands on experience that children get at The Gentle Barn, they learn that animals have feelings and need love just like people do, teaching people to be kind and compassionate to each other. We also want special needs children to have the chance to meet our special, therapeutic farm animals.

Please read the September review here first! It pretty much sums up the REAL Gentle Barn. The previous poster appears naive. All of us so called 'haters' actually love the mission statement of the Gentle Barn. We just don't like getting scammed. The staff IS friendly. The facility IS nice. They DO rescue animals. However, there is little to no accountability at this place. Concerned donors and volunteers voice their concerns on Facebook on "Gentle Barn Concerns". Until they clean up their act, I do NOT recommend donating to this organization.
