All goats will be tattooed, disbudded and have current CD/T shots. No animal will leave the farm unless we feel they’re in excellent health.
Buyers are responsible for the following additional costs: 1) any additional blood tests or other health related examination which are required by you or your state, and 2) transfer of ADGA (American Dairy Goat Association) Registration Certificates to your name.
Please note that we require a non refundable deposit of $100 applied towards the purchase price of each goat in order to hold any animal. The deposit will hold your kid until it’s 10 weeks old, at which time you will need to pick-up your goat(s) with the balance of the price due in cash.
Deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE; however, in the unfortunate circumstance of death or illness, the deposit may be directed towards a future kid, or refunded.
We’ll work closely with those who are fairly new to goats; however, we reserve the right to turn down any potential buyer that we don’t feel will provide quality care. If you know nothing at all about goats, for the welfare of the animals, we urge you to do some research on goat care before making your first purchase. Please see our resources page to help with educating yourself.
Since we’re a small farm, all our animals are well socialized and handled daily. We check every one of our goats every day to ensure they’re in good health. All goats receive preventative vaccines, hoof trimming, deworming, free choice minerals and high quality alfalfa hay to insure their continued good health. We love our goats and will give you continued support after your purchase.
All goats are guaranteed healthy at time of sale. Because we can not control any stress that may occur as a result of transporting the animal(s) or the animal’s new environment after they leave our farm we offer no other guarantees.
We maintain a bio secure environment meaning that we do not allow any goats or animals on our farm that do not have veterinary certified negative tests for Johnne’s, CL and CAE. All of our goats are tested yearly for these diseases to insure their ongoing health. We therefore will not allow returns of a goat that we have sold since their new home may have these diseases present at the new location. An exception will be made only if you can prove by veterinary lab services that the goat has tested negative for these diseases.
In accordance with best practices for livestock sales, we will have you sign a binding contract that outlines all of these details and must be signed when deposit is received. The sales agreement can be found here.
This Bill of Sale will be required for all Purchases.
