Have You Seen These Goats?

Christmas Tree-Eating Goats Escape from Wheat Ridge Farm

The goats are missing from the Kipling Trailhead grazing area. Missing are 5 full-size goats: 2 black, 2 brown, and 1 white. They are Lamancha goats with small ears (except for Yoda who has big ears).

Goat Parade - CANCELLED

The goats have been hanging out at the Wheat Ridge Greenbelt Open Space keeping the grass mowed. They've finished their job and were supposed to be heading back to the Farm this week, but they have gone missing! If you have any information, please call the Wheat Ridge Police Department at 303-237-2220.

The goats will be fine outside in this cold, but you might not be! We could use warm bodies behind computers searching for folks buying/selling goats.

Inside the Fridge: January

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

It's been a relatively quiet month at the Farm for the most part. At least it was until the goats went missing.

  • Received NUMEROUS applications for the 2019 Farm Apprentice Program. We filled our program and had a wait list! We accepted all the applicants we could, but there were just too many to accept them all. Thank you to all who applied.
  • We have a visitor staying at the Farm. Brody is a Nigerian Dwarf buck and will be hanging out with our Lamancha lady goats until mid-January. If all goes well, we will be blessed with "Nigeriancha" babies in the spring.
  • We wrapped up our 2018 Farm Apprentice Program with a potluck dinner to celebrate all that has been accomplished in 2018.

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.
