Inside the Fridge: December

Thank you to all who enjoyed a 5 Fridges Farm turkey this year. They were delicious!

  • Shorter days mean fewer eggs. We do not use artificial lights to keep the chickens laying over the winter - we want a break and so do the hens. Egg sales will resume in the spring.
  • Milk production is slowing as we move into breeding season. Breeding means there will be milk in the coming year. 
  • The boy goats have been munching away in the green space next to the Kipling/Clear Creek Open Space trail head. They have about a month to go before being paraded back to the Farm in January.

The growing season has wound down and we are closing up for winter. If you need us, we'll be inside, enjoying a cup of coffee, and dreaming about the spring...

Farm Apprentice Program

Comments from the 2018 Apprentices

The apprenticeship program is the ideal way to experience farming on a small scale, from the daily routine through the seasonal changes. Forget social networking, no better connections are made than through problem solving and work on this small scale farm. -- Roger

An opportunity to learn about what really happens on the farm, whether planned or not. It's an authentic experience. -- Laura

It’s a place to find your patience and moments of being able to hear yourself without the static of outside distractions. -- Shawna

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.
