The Farm:5 Fridges Farm is a 13 acre sustainable research farm 6 miles from downtown Denver. Your host Dr. Amanda Weaver, faculty at University of Colorado Denver, has been featured in local media regarding her work with farm-to table initiatives and urban agriculture. The farm partners with many other Colorado organizations interested in conservation, habitat, and local food sourcing.

Farm Access: Guests can access the entire farm. Beyond the 2 private porches of the guest house, there is a large communal farm porch and fire pit near the front market gardens. Beyond the homestead, there are 12 more acres of farmed and unfarmed habititat. Explore the many different growing areas and meet the goats, chickens, turkeys,and bees who reside at the farm. There are also other spaces to find with quiet mountain views and a creek with amazing wild animal/bird habitat.

Farm Experiences: Join us for morning or afternoon chores which include gathering eggs, milking, and feeding animals. Outside of chores, you can join Amanda in the farm's commercial kitchen as she makes cheese and yogurt, preserves fruits and vegetables, or bakes granola and other yummy things for farm breakfasts/snacks. Weekends usually include at least one night around the campfire (or in the commercial kitchen if its too cold) with farm story telling, live-music, and fire-roasted smores!
