Log in

The people of Wheat Ridge are amazing! So many kind messages, offers of help, and support after the goats went missing. I am so blessed to be part of this community!

Thanks

In honor of the goats we miss so much, our friends at Colorado Plus Brew Pub will be making a special beer in their honor and to raise funds for the 5 Fridges Farm public grazing team. Join in support by making your own contribution to

Goat Fund Me

Donations will be used to rebuild the herd including needed vet tests (for incoming goats), fencing, and new field cameras and/or GPS tracking tags to better monitor the herd in the future.

The first 30 donations will receive a FFF sticker.

What's been happening at the Farm in the past month

So much for our quiet winter! Let's hope the rest of 2019 is a little less eventful.

  • Our 2019 Apprentices began their apprenticeship at the Farm and are getting into the swing of things.
  • We are re-building our herd of boy goats starting with Arlo and Willie.
  • Brody, the Nigerian Dwarf buck, enjoyed his month-long visit to the Farm. Looking forward to some "Nigeriancha" kids in the spring.
  • The lady goats are coming to terms with the fact there are new boys in town. Not sure they are really happy about it, but change is good, right?
  • We continue to mourn the loss of Wendell, Daryll, Daryl, Yoda, and Creampuff.

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.

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)
