Historical Note

The first chapter of the FarmHouse Fraternity was established at the University of Missouri in 1905 by students studying agriculture. The purpose of the fraternity was to establish a national, non-Greek organization to promote brotherhood between students of good academic and moral standing, primarily those students whose career interests included an emphasis on agriculture. In 1952, a FarmHouse Club was established at NC State by professors in various agricultural disciplines who brought with them to State their own experiences with being members of FarmHouse at the universities they studied at as undergraduates. After a two-year probationary period as a "club," the NC State group applied to the national FarmHouse office for chapter status in 1954, and the university was granted a chapter in 1955. FarmHouse remains active at NC State as of 2008.
