Christmas to Compost - FULL

WOW! We have had an overwhelming response to our tree-cycle program! Thank you to all who have dropped off their trees.

We are not able to accept any more trees until our missing goats come home.

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.

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.

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)
