ABOUT FARMHOUSE

A CENTURY OF STRONG VALUES
& COMMUNITY


FarmHouse was founded in 1905 by a group of like-minded students at the University of Missouri who had a few important things in common: they were studying agriculture and they were looking for community. What they created together became so much more.

From the very beginning, FarmHouse stood apart from the traditional fraternity experience. Focused more on authentic community and succeeding in their chosen field, our founders paved their own way. They were then, and we continue to be today, leaders in academic achievement, a strongly values-driven organization, and a welcoming place for all students. Our history is compelling and our future is bright, and we hope that these pages introduce you to the organization over 30,000 FarmHouse members know and love. 

Another defining and unique trademark of FarmHouse is that our rituals, recruitment processes, and official documents are all non-secretive. We strive to be a leader shaping the future of fraternities into something we can all be proud of. Read below to learn more about our history, our values, and our recent news.

MISSION, VISION, VALUES


We are driven by values.

Spend time with any of our members and you will quickly find that we are a brotherhood committed to strong, consistent values. These aren’t just a formality — they truly inform everything we do. To learn more about our shared Mission, Vision and Values statements, visit our values page.

THE OBJECT


We are guided by principles.

When FarmHouse was established, our seven Founders wrote The Object, a statement of timeless guiding principles that is still spoken at chapter meetings today. Read it and other guiding documents at the link below.

INTERNATIONAL EXECUTIVE BOARD

Our International Executive Board is made up of eight FarmHouse members who have shown integrity, dedication and success in their fields since their time as undergraduate members. They guide the vision and decisions made for the Fraternity and the Foundation.

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION


FarmHouse’s commitment to progress

FarmHouse is committed to nurturing a welcoming, inclusive and safe environment that fosters mutual respect for all members of our chapters and communities. From the beginning, we have been led by the phrase “progress shall mark our every step” as we work to better ourselves and those with whom we are in community. We recommit ourselves to the idea of personal achievement, as well as sacrifice and service, as we hope to contribute to the betterment of all people.
