The Gentle Barn

Today was like a perfect vegan Christmas present!  We started out my husband’s birthday get-away by going to the The Gentle Barn on our way to Santa Barbara.

Great vibe right when you arrive and are greeted by volunteers and begin your tour with a brief chat with co-founder Jay.  Not only do they rescue animals, they also work with kids that also feel broken like the animals and allow them a place to feel safe and healed.

The Gentle Barn gives you the opportunity for hands on lov’n with the animals.  We got to brush and hug cows, give carrots to the donkeys and horses, belly rub to the pigs and pets to the goats.  To top it off they serve vegan “franks” which made the birthday boys day!

I highly recommend a visit to Gentle Barn.  Love supporting such amazing people that have such open hearts for animals and kids!
