Bleats and Peeps

Goats eating trees

Too many trees and not enough goats!

Thank you to all who have dropped off trees. We have received so many that we are not able to accept any more. Please take your tree to your nearest recycling center (there is one off 44th Ave at Prospect Park). 

We have so many trees that you can't hardly see the goats, so we have had to cancel the public viewing of the goats eating the trees this Friday. Thank you for your understanding and Happy New Year!

5 Fridges Farm - your 1 monthly stop for eggs, cheese, yogurt, chicken, and ground beef

All sustainable, all local CO


Which came first?chicken

Eggs slow way down starting in November of each year because of shorter daylight. We find our hens live longer if we do not artificially light the coop. This break from laying allows the hens to do a couple of things: 1) rest their bodies, and 2) put energy into annual molting (changing out of feathers). Egg shares will come back again in March as the days start to lengthen.

Want to know more? Come too our Poultry 101 class which will cover the raising and maintenance of laying hens and meat birds (chickens and turkeys). Class will be held from 8:00am - 11:00am.

Register for class: Wed Feb 12   Sat Feb 15
