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.
Christmas to Compost
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.

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.
