Now Offering Sourdough Bread Shares

We have partnered with Sauer Craft to bring you fresh bread each month. The Light & Airy Sourdough Loaf is made fresh to order. Fill out a new share request to start receiving bread each month or add it to your existing share.

REQUEST A SHARE

We are filling shares as the chickens are laying more eggs. Request a Share to get on the list.

Dreaming of Chickens?

Part of our mission is to educate people on local food. Join Farmer Amanda at the Farm (via Zoom) as she shares her knowledge of poultry. You will learn about the equipment you need, how to make a good coop for your chickens, and tricks to brooding and raising chicks.

R. Favorites

I started baking cookies with my Grandmother when I was a child. When the Army sent me to Korea, I checked out Julia Child's Cookbook and baked my first bread loaf for my husband in the shared kitchen of the nurses' hootch. Thanks to Julia and other authors, my love of cooking and especially baking grew. I inflicted birthday cakes and sweet rolls on my co-workers until I retired from nursing. I enjoy baking breads including sourdough and my popular Kindred's Milk Bread, as well as gooey pecan sticky buns, fruit hand pies, biscotti and an extensive assortment of cookies, requests are welcome!

Inside the Fridge: January

What's been happening at the Farm in the past month
  • Wonderful winter vacation in Texas.
  • Taking a vacation from the Farm is awesome!
  • Tracy and Amanda combined Amanda's vacation with a trip for BBQ in Amarillo, TX
  • Between bites of BBQ we got in a lot of great planning for 2021 for the Farm.
  • Found out that leaving the Farm for 18 days is just like leaving your dogs (or kids) - they are mad and spoiled when you get back!
  • It is good to be home.

Sustainability Community Education

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.

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.

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)
