Inside the Fridge: March

What's been happening at the Farm in the past month
  • No babies yet. Hopefully they will arrive in the next few weeks.
  • Survived record snow (more than 2 feet!) at the Farm.
  • During the snowfall, Amanda had to check the chicken netting every few hours to make sure it wasn't weighted down.
  • All the animals agree that the snow was pretty until it melted and made everything muddy and stinky.

The list of vendors in our Online Farmers Market is growing. We'd like to introduce you to Marcus and Carly Smith at

Sauer Craft

Sauer Craft is a local, family-owned bakery operating in Centennial, Colorado. We handcraft and bake sourdough breads, pastries, and cakes, leavened and fermented with wild and natural yeast. We bake with sourdough because of the nutritive benefits and the delicious, complex flavors that are a product of long fermented grains. Try the true sourdough difference!

Sauer Craft goodies can be purchased in a 3-month Share or in the Online Farmers Market.

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.

Due to COVID-19 we are not offering tours at this time. Stay safe everyone!

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.

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)
