Deposits: A NON-REFUNDABLE deposit in the amount of $100.00 made via Paypal, cash or check, will secure your purchase. Weaned kids and/or adults, must be picked up within 30 days, otherwise, a boarding fee of $2.00 per day will be incurred. Deposits for wethers are always a minimum of $100 or 50% of the total purchase price. If you're purchasing two wethers, the minimum deposit is $125.00.
For purchases of kids made prior to weaning, kids must be picked up within 30 days of weaning, unless special arrangements have been made- otherwise, incur a boarding fee of $5.00 per day.
If the goat has not been picked up after 45 days, the buyer will lose the deposit and the goat will be relisted for sale. We reserve the right to cancel sales for any reason. If we cancel a sale because we've decided to retain the goat, your deposit will be refunded. Otherwise, deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE.
The balance of the purchase price must be paid IN FULL at the time of pickup. The balance can be paid in cash or through Paypal- however, in order for us to accept a check for the remaining balance, it must be received at least 2 weeks prior to the scheduled pickup date.
Reservations: If you would like to reserve a kid from a future breeding, please contact us via text, phone, email or our Facebook page, and we will put you on a wish list. Once kids are born from your desired breeding, a deposit will be required to hold the kid. If a deposit is not received, kids will be available on a first come, first served basis.
We dam raise our goats and prefer not to wean them prior to 12 weeks of age, however, an intact buck has to be removed from the doe pen by 9 weeks, so we will sell bucklings at 9 weeks. Wethers and does remain on the farm until 12 weeks. We typically have Nigerian Dwarf goats for sale in the spring/summer each year.
Every single goat on our farm was dam raised. They are all very friendly and comfortable with people. When you come to the farm, you'll see that they approach for attention. If you are concerned about a dam raised goats ability to bond to people, I encourage you to visit our farm and see for yourself just how friendly they are.
We have strict biosecurity practices here on the farm. We have never purchased a goat from a farm that couldn't provide negative test results for CAE/Johne's and CL. And we continue to test our herd annually or bi-annually.
Because of biosecurity concerns, we cannot take back any goat that has left our property.
Thoughts on purchasing from us
We are a small, family farm. We decided we wanted to be more self-sufficient and we wanted FRESH milk, so rather than purchase a cow- we decided on dairy goats. They're entertaining, easy to handle and the milk is DELICIOUS!
In order for us to meet our own needs for milk, we have to breed our does every year. This means we will inevitably have to sell some of the kids and we will occasionally sell adults as we try to make room for younger stock.
As of this writing, we do not "SHOW" our goats. One of our biggest concerns with showing is that there is a BIO-SECURITY RISK. If showing is important to you, by all means, show your goats.
Be aware that there are a lot of excellent, show quality breeders who do NOT show their goats, so don't be fooled into thinking that a ribbon makes a goat more valuable than one without a ribbon.
While we can certainly see the value in showing, showing is NOT a performance measure and we would much rather focus our efforts on better understanding performance programs likelinear appraisalsandDHIR testing so that we can participate in those programs. We are breeding for DAIRY qualities- which will also lead to show quality, for those interested in showing.
We aren't aiming to be pet goat breeders. Our goal is to produce TRUE dairy animals. If we have a "cull" that doesn't meet our expectations in terms of milk production, they will be sold without papers in an effort to prevent watering down the quality of the registered market goats.
As breeders who aim to produce goats that can PUT IT IN THE PAIL, we do not breed for eye color or coat color, but there are certainly plenty of breeders out there who do.
There are also breeders who DON'T milk their does. As a result, they have absolutely no idea which direction to take their breeding program from one year to the next. If I have a doe who is lacking in terms of production, I need to know that so I know to breed her to the buck who is most likely to help ensure that her daughters are NOT mediocre producers. Just the same, I can't know whose teats have tiny orifices, or who my best milkers are coming from if I am not gauging the production of my does. I DO milk my does and I intend to participate in DHIR testing in the future, but in the meantime- I keep track of their production for my own records.
