Mission, Vision & Values

The heart of FarmHouse can be found in our mission, vision and values statements. We rely on these truths to guide us in fellowship and growth, believing they reflect the intention of our founders over a century ago while still remaining relevant for every member today.

OUR MISSION


To create a community of brotherhood that cultivates the potential of our members, strengthens values and provides unique leadership and personal growth opportunities to build exceptional men.

OUR VISION


Our vision is a membership empowered and inspired to leave a lasting, positive impact on their communities — locally and worldwide.

OUR VALUES


The principles we believe are the foundation to each member’s personal and the Fraternity’s overall growth. FARMHOUSE is more than a namesake, it’s what we stand for.

Excellence

"My experiences as a student in the Iowa State Chapter of FarmHouse aligned with and shaped my core values. Those core values are reflected in our Fraternity's Object statement. I reflect on those ideals often and decades later I still find them to be a guiding light in whatever I am doing."
