Refrigeration

I've been looking into living a self sustaining life growing my own crops, etc.

Is a hole in the ground good for refrigeration purposes?

If so, how deep and what would it be ideal for?

Interesting question, it would work for storing root crops in the winter months and for keeping some things cool in the summer. However I don't think you'll find it keeps certain things frozen or at a cold enough temperature to be safe for eating.
You might want to look up some information on "root cellars".
