Set on 15 beautiful acres in Orefield, PA, the ranch is a permanent home for over 50 animals rescued from abuse or neglect. For many sanctuaries, this would be the end of the mission. But TGMR takes the rescuing one step further. The animals are trained and socialized to become co-therapists for people suffering from emotional or mental trauma. In essence, the animals, who were once unwanted, find a new life by helping others.

OPEN GATE FARM TOUR
Sunday, October 19, 2014
Join us on October 19 for a Petting Zoo, Bake Sale, Food Stands, Donkey Cart Rides, Autumn Crafts, Barn Sale Items, Raffle and Life Music! All contributions benefit Andrew & Cutie and the Peacock Habitat.
There will be a petting zoo, which will introduce some of the rescued animals including ponies, alpacas, goats, and pot-bellied pigs! There will be educational talks, a live Musical Group JUST SO DUO, bake sale, food items, a raffle, barn sale, and horse & pony and donkey cart rides.
The Gress Mountain Ranch is involved with the Lehigh County Cooperative Extension, and as part of The Open Gate Farm Tour, the ranch will be hosting this event.
The Gress Mountain Ranch is a sanctuary where abused and neglected animals are given life-long care to recover and thrive. In turn, the animals become therapy animals and have a job to help people learn to improve their self-worth, communication skills, and learn respect for all living beings.
