Building the Future
Investing in the Minnesota Chapter of FarmHouse Fraternity will ensure that we continue our success as the “Best Fraternity” on either campus at the University of Minnesota.
In 2011, confident in the strength of this unique brotherhood of men, the Minnesota FarmHouse Association, with dreams of “building the future”, set about the task of planning a new home, one that would replace the chapter house that was home to hundreds of members since it opening in the early 60’s.
For future generations of young men to benefit from the FarmHouse Experience, and to ensure the Legacy of Minnesota FarmHouse, FarmHouse needed a house that was attractive, functional and up-to-date structurally that would attract young men to live, study, work and enjoy life through the FarmHouse Experience. The building project also demonstrates commitment of Minnesota FarmHouse to the University of Minnesota, CFANS and the Land Grant college system.
The new Minnesota FarmHouse building is more than just a comfortable place to eat and sleep. It’s a college home in which a man can be: creative, share responsibilities, make lasting friendships, learn the essence of brotherhood, and learn the caring of one man – and of a community of men – for the individual, for the brother, for the community, and for the mutual welfare.
“Building Men” does not happen by accident. It is through the intentional efforts of other FarmHouse men that young men become FarmHouse Men.
In a world filled with challenge and opportunity for service, it is important that we be aware of the need for a brotherhood of men. Banded together with brothers in FarmHouse on this campus and other universities, challenged to further the principles of our fraternity: Faith, Ambition, Reverence, Morality, Honesty, Obedience, Unity, Service and Excellence.
“This new FarmHouse home is dedicated to the development of young men to:
– Better serve their professions
– Better achieve their highest potential as persons
– Better sustain those who love and depend on them
– Better support their community, state, and nation; and
– Better realize the purposes for which life is given to them.
“FarmHouse is dedicated to the BUILDING OF MEN!”
