Ellie Laks & Jay Weiner
Ellie and Jay are the founders of The Gentle Barn founded in 1999, a national nonprofit that is home to hundreds of animals and has hosted over 400,000 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 Gentle Barn and their wonderful animals.
The Gentle Barn
The Gentle Barn rescues animals from severe abuse and neglect who are too old, sick, or scared to be adopted into homes. The Gentle Barn's mission is, "Teaching kindness and compassion to animals, each other and our planet". Sanctuary to horses, cows, pigs, goats, turkeys, chickens, cats and dogs. Once rehabilitated, the animals help us give hope and inspiration to children with the same stories.

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.
