Sustainability Community Education

Fridge Values

5 Fridges Farm strives to research and practice realistic local solutions to the issues in our current food system: access, waste, taste, environment, soil/range management, water use, and land conservation. We believe these sustainable options are best disseminated via community engagement, education, hard work, and plain old fun.

Apprentice Update

We hare halfway through the 2019 Farm Apprentice Program and our Apprentices have been working hard. So far they have learned:planting trees

  • chores, fencing, fixing everything
  • animal care for chickens, turkeys, and goats
  • sprouting and planing
  • turkey hatching and baby bird maintenance
  • milking goats
"As a stay at home mom trying to refind my strengths, this program has been a blessing to my sanity! The other benefit is working to help build a knowledge for a more sustainable community." -- April P.

"The apprenticeship at 5 Fridges has been an enthralling experience from the first minute I stepped on the farm. Amanda's enthusiasm for the work and knowledge of the food system makes for easy learning. If you are looking to have an accessible farm experience  and develop skills in animal husbandry, there is no better option locally." -- Mike S.

Interested in being a Farm Apprentice? Applications for 2020 will be accepted beginning November 1st.

5 Fridges Farm is more than just a cool place to visit goats, it’s also a research farm around sustainable practices in urban farming.

Traditional farming spends a lot of time, money, and energy wrestling nature (climate, soil quality, pests, etc) and figuring out how to make money. Natural systems, however, balance themselves with much greater efficiency. So with each year of listening more, and fighting less, with the plants and animals of the Farm, our efforts get more efficient and more sustainable. 

It also turns out that when the human farmers don’t have the time, money, or energy for farm projects, they get creative, efficient, and sustainable. Here at 5 Fridges Farm, this has turned into a sort of 3BL (triple bottom line) evaluation for projects - the Farm projects must:

  1. Provide and maintain healthy habitats and diets for animals and insects (social)
  2. Promote and sustain the land they live on (environmental)
  3. Be local and financially sustainable (financial)
