Gress Mountain Ranch Open Gate Farm Tour
s part of The Lehigh County Open Gate Farm Tour, The Gress Mountain Ranch (TGMR) will host an event in cooperation with the Lehigh County Cooperative Extension Service from 1 to 5 p.m., October 19. A petting zoo will introduce some of the rescued animals that include ponies, alpacas, goats and pot-bellied pigs. There will be a bake sale, food items, a raffle, barn sale, horse and pony and donkey cart rides, educational talks, a live musical group, Just So Duo, and Pat’s Positive Dog Agility.
The Gress Mountain Ranch is a sanctuary where abused and neglected animals are given lifelong 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.
