FARMHOUSE is a fraternity dedicated to the building of men

FarmHouse is found on college campuses throughout North America, from coast to coast, and is a fraternity dedicated to our motto – builder of men. The fraternity is a college home in which a man can be: creative, share responsibilities, make lasting friendships, express his inner self in an atmosphere of trust and understanding, learn lessons in living in a community of which he is an integral part, be accepted as a participant, learn the essence of brotherhood, and learn the caring of one man – and of a community of men – for the individual, the brother, for the community, and for the mutual welfare.

FarmHouse promotes the growth and welfare of our members through a four-fold focus of intellectual, social/moral, spiritual and physical development. Such occurs when brothers – both students and alumni – gather together in a learning environment which inspires continued improvement as a scholar and as a gentleman of high character. Such affiliation encourages success in one’s career, in one’s personal relationships and in one’s community and civic engagement.

FarmHouse sows the seed today which will, with time and nurture, produce the leaders of tomorrow’s world: the researchers, the teachers, the academics, the statesmen, the farmers, the business executives, the community leaders, and the professional men of the future whose task it will be to solve societal challenges.

To build men during their collegiate experience and throughout life, the Fraternity promotes members to live our principals in our daily actions, as reflected in our name – Faith, Ambition, Reverence, Morality, Honesty, Obedience, Unity, Service and Excellence – FARMHOUSE.

The goal of a member should be not only to uphold these principals and the ideals and reputation he inherits, but to improve and expand them, for to stand still, to maintain status quo is to take a step backward.

The 4-Fold Building Process

The university environment is one that promotes growth - through academic study and through personal development. Enhancing and supporting this growth, is the FarmHouse chapter member experience, which is grounded in the Fraternity’s commitment to helping young men develop through a four-fold focus of intellectual, social/moral, spiritual and physical growth.


Intellectual growth is promoted as the prime objective of the college student. So too is it the belief that it becomes a primary responsibility of the Fraternity. It is the aim of FarmHouse to amplify the cultural and intellectual atmosphere of the university, by providing surroundings conducive to study, by offering counseling to students who require assistance, by helping a man to plan his time, by encouraging each man to apply himself to his primary goal with diligence.


When a young man goes to college he is often taking a first step toward independence. At this time religious convictions and feelings toward morals and customs he has previously shared with family or friends often undergo personal reflection. He may build on these foundations, or he may, consciously or unconsciously, drift away from his previously held convictions. FarmHouse encourages their members to grow in the exploration of their faith.


We are judged in society by our manners, by our attitudes and by our behavior. As members of a group we have come to realize that the group is often judged by the actions of the individual, as the group with which he associates judges the individual.


To be mentally alert, productive, and a contributing member to the Fraternity and society, a man needs to be in good health, in mind, body and spirit. It is essential to a student’s well-being that he learn the healthy habits of balanced meals, receive adequate rest, be active and be supported in his emotional health by his brothers.
