The Old Row House

Kathy and Gene reminisced as we made our way to the Row House in Wilmington, DE, where Farm Sanctuary’s work began. This old house with its tiny backyard was home to many rescued animals and served as Farm Sanctuary’s office headquarters from 1986 to 1989. We were thrilled to learn that at least one of the current occupants is vegetarian. Before leaving, we received as souvenirs a few weathered planks of the old fence that once encircled the backyard and housed our first animal ambassadors.

Kathy Toomey is a dear, longtime friend of Farm Sanctuary. She was there at our beginning, volunteering to help at the Row House in Wilmington, DE, and at our first farm in Avondale, PA. Kathy and her husband, Linwood, graciously hosted the Just Eats Tour crew for the night, and the following morning, Kathy hopped in the van and joined us on our trip down memory lane as we made our way toward Lancaster, PA.
