Goodies for All

5 Fridges Farm

5 Fridges Farm

Eggs

 - At 5 Fridges Farm we have a variety of laying hens including Ameraucanas, Barred Plymouth Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, and White Leghorns. These lovely ladies give us quite the assortment of beautiful eggs from white to brown to blue!

Layer hens live in a wide open area and are fed locally grown and milled organic (and NON-GMO) feed. Combined with sunshine, this high Omega 3-6-9 feed makes a delicious and nutritious egg!

Cheese

 - Our goat cheese is made twice per month from fresh goat milk. These 1/2 pound packages can be plain and unsalted, or flavored with herbs from the Farm (Farmer Amanda gets to choose the flavor).

Serving Tips: Plain cheese tastes great with honey, nuts, and dried fruit. Flavored cheese is wonderful when served with a little olive oil on top). Either flavor is also excellent with pepper jelly.

*Cheese is made from farm-fresh goat milk and goat milk is lactose-free. All milk used in the processing of cheese is brought to pasteurization temperature as recommended by the USDA. This product is sold for “PET USE ONLY.” Consumption is at your own risk.

Poop Your Plants

 - What comes out at the Farm is great for your plants! Purchase manure for pick up from the Farm (these are the best manures for your spring/summer gardening). Bags are 24" x 40" and will weigh 40-50 pounds.

Yogurt

 - Our low-fat yogurt is made twice per month from fresh skimmed goat milk. Your 1 quart jar can be plain or vanilla.

*Yogurt is made from farm-fresh goat milk and goat milk is lactose-free. All milk used in the processing of cheese is brought to pasteurization temperature as recommended by the USDA. This product is sold for “PET USE ONLY.” Consumption is at your own risk.

Sun Prairie Beef

Sun Prairie

Beef

 - Sun Prairie provides certified 100% grass fed, free-range, all-natural, local beef to the Front Range and beyond. Check out our Farm Store for Sun Prairie Beef.

Why Grass fed? Grass fed animals as those that have eaten nothing but grass and forage from weaning to harvest, have not been raised in confinement, and have never been fed antibiotics or growth hormones. Grass fed meat is:

  • Healthy for people. Research shows that grass fed meat is lean, contains a high percentage of good fats – Omega 3s and CLA — and beneficial antioxidant vitamins and minerals.
  • Healthy for animals. Cattle, goats, sheep, and bison evolved to eat grass and not much else. Feeding them a diet rich in grains creates an acidic environment in their digestive systems, leading to disease and the need for treatment with antibiotics.
  • Healthy for the planet. Pasture-based farming restores natural ecosystems and wildlife habitat, reduces reliance on petrochemicals, improves the soil with organic matter, and reduces greenhouse gasses, especially CO2.
  • Healthy for communities. Small family farms provide jobs and strong economies in rural communities and create sustainable businesses for succeeding generations.

Sausage

 - Our pork sausage comes from Berkshire breed pigs raised by Duane Durland. Duane, a long-time friend of Sun Prairie, moved from town to the country three years ago. Upon a visit from Tom and myself, we realized he had bought a place with infrastructure for pig farming. We helped Duane make improvements to the property as well as gifted the sow and boar to begin his micro-pig operation. Tom provides education on porcine husbandry and helps out when Duane is out of town. This is part of a broader initiative called the Sun Prairie Pork Project where Tom connects willing producers with markets so to seed a new agriculture based on regenerative and humanely-raised practices rather than yields and least cost.

The pigs roam freely (no crates, ever!) and are in family groups. Weaning is at eight weeks - far longer than the industry standard of three. Since it's a small group of pigs, and Duane tends to them daily, they develop a relationship that is key to good husbandry. Issues seen in large operations just don't exist here. For example, tail docking is practiced at other places because bored, crowded pigs start to entertain themselves by biting others' tails - so they cut the tails off! Not here. These are engaged, happy pigs.

This is our third set of pigs from Duane, but it is our fist time offering the Berkshire in a mixed box. The Berkshire is a distant third in registered pig breeds in the USA. It is known for its dark colored and marbled meat. It has a distinctly rich flavor - way more flavorful than the conventional pork found in grocery stores. The Berkshire pig takes longer to mature and produces small to medium sized litters, making it more costly to raise - but the trade-offs for flavor and heritage are worth every penny.

Pfz Farms

Pfz Farms

Chicken

 - We are a Colorado family farm producing quality agricultural products with sustainable methods for a healthier world. While we produce a number of dry-land crops we also have a number of smaller production focuses that support our overall vision of a sustainable farm.

“Brother Chickens” from Pfz Farms are not like grocery store chickens - meat that is bred for fast weight gain and less flavor. We buy the male chicks from egg-layer breeders who only want to keep females for egg production. Because these "brothers" of brown egg laying hens take twice as long to gain weight, they have better flavor and texture. They are the chickens that your grandparents grew up with, raised the same way your grandparents did. They are fed local grains and scraps from the garden and are allowed to wander around outside. The processing is done with respect, locally by hand, and sold to you to ensure your family can enjoy chicken as it was meant to be.
