The Gentle Barn is currently home to over 130 animals who are rescued and given sanctuary from abuse. Once the animals are rehabilitated, they stay at the Gentle Barn for the rest of their lives and serve as ambassadors helping kids learn kindness, compassion, confidence and reverence for all life.
Rub a pig’s belly, cuddle a turkey and hug a cow at Santa Clarita’s Gentle Barn. The six-acre farm was established in 2003 and is dedicated to teaching people kindness and compassion toward animals and the planet. Since its opening, it has been home to hundreds of animals and currently houses over one hundred pigs, cows, horses, peacocks, roosters, dogs and goats. The Gentle Barn is open to the public on Sundays.
