Storybook Farm is a Christ centered nonprofit organization established in January 2002 in Opelika, Alabama with the vision of providing equine-assisted activities for children and young adults who are challenged with life-threatening illnesses, disabilities, mental and/or emotional trauma, and grief. Storybook Farm seeks to encourage hope and healing through its riding programs and the gentle nature of horses. The farm sits on a customized 25 acre equine facility home to 16 horses and 22 companion animals, all named after literary characters. All programs are free of charge to the families and are completely funded through donations. Annually, Storybook Farm welcomes over 600 children from east central Alabama and west Georgia.
FarmHouse Fraternity has been part of Storybook Farm since 2004, providing assistance with riding sessions and physical labor on the farm. In 2006, FarmHouse decided to do more and had the inaugural FarmHouse Rodeo Classic. Each year, FarmHouse has bull riding, bronco riding, steer wrestling and other non-traditional rodeo events. In the past, entertainers have included the likes of David Nail, Justin Moore and Eric Church. Since 2006, FarmHouse has donated over $70,000 to Storybook Farm.
