It is with great sadness that Drumm mourns the passing of a dear friend, alumnus Gary Dean Logan. A successful family man and businessman, Dean has been and will always be an incredible role model for Drumm kids both young and old. Today Logan House, named in honor of Dean's amazing support of Drumm's mission, houses ten children on the west side of our campus. 


Gary, as his friends and family in California called him, was a leader while living at Drumm Farm in the 1950s. His passionate accounts of the lessons taught and learned, as well as his thankfulness for the opportunities that resulted, illustrated to all what Drumm Farm has meant to so many for more than 95 years. Dean and I spent hours "talking Drumm" and he became both a friend and mentor. His accounting of his childhood at Drumm was always heartfelt and inspiring, and his love for Harry Nelson, Drumm Farm's first superintendent, was significant.


We are extremely saddened by his passing, but we celebrate a life well lived. Dean set goals, worked hard and achieved success throughout his life. His life is the definition of what Drumm Farm wants for every child we touch. Please say a prayer for Dean's family as they cope with his passing, and say another prayer that every Drumm child aspires to live life like Gary Dean Logan.

Drumm Days Launch

Hundreds of Kindergarten students from the Independence School District will never forget their special visit to Drumm Farm. Activities included feeding farm animals, choosing pumpkins from our pumpkin patch, a puppet show, story time, nature trails, and recess relays. All activities highlighted Science and Literacy curriculum that all students studied through October.
The Independence School District partnered with Drumm Farm to help with transportation and lunch. Nutrition Services prepared and served a hearty farm lunch to students. There is no doubt that many children will now have a special connection to Drumm Farm through their wonderful Drumm Days field trip experience.

Drumm Days was made possible through the hard work and planning of the Drumm Farm Staff and dedicated volunteers.

We Believe! It's not just the Royals who had an incredible October! 
The families and children at Drumm Farm had  a winning month also. October began with our 13th Annual EMC2 Farm Center for Children Golf Classic on a cloudy October 1. The sun came out for our 38 teams and a great time was had by all! One tournament wasn't enough to satisfy all the golfers and the generous donors who want to help our kids so Custom Truck & Equipment sponsored the 1st Annual Friends of Drumm Golf Tournament on October 6. Over $90,000 was raised for the record number of kids who call Drumm Farm home! We can't thank all of our generous sponsors enough!!! 
Save October 7 and 8, 2015 for the Classic and Friends tournaments next year!

City Slickers Hoedown

If you happened by Drumm Farm on October 11, 2014 you may have seen close to 500 people participating in the First Annual City Slickers Charity Hoedown presented by Northpoint Development and The Roasterie! 

Families dressed western and enjoyed old-fashioned fun including caricatures, a seed-spitting contest, pumpkin decorating, a petting zoo, live music, fabulous food and fireworks to name a few. Proceeds benefited Drumm Farm Center for Children and Variety The Children's Charity. Andrew Drumm would have loved seeing all the families enjoying his beautiful farm!
