If you are thinking of
purchasing any goats from our farm, please read over our sales policies.
If you have any questions please email/call us. Thanks for looking.
In the past we kept our goats on a dry lot. We are currently
remodeling the barns and pastures so to speak so as of right now (June
2014) they are still dry lot. We hope to have them out to pasture before
All goats are sold with a guarantee that the goat is reproductively
sound. We offer no other guarantees.
If the goat should prove unsound for breeding we require a vet report
indicating that it is sterile and not from a nutritional or management
reason and the registrations papers returned. A goat of equal value will
be given in its place.
All sales are final, we DO NOT accept goats back under any
circumstances once they leave. We do not know where they go or what they
maybe exposed to when they leave so we cannot accept them back onto our
farm due to bio-security reasons. If you have questions about anything
please do so before purchasing and/or picking-up the goat and of course, if you have any concerns
once the goat is home feel free to contact us about them. We will do our
best to help ensure the goats and the new owners are satisfied with
*Exposed does are not guaranteed bred. It simply means they've been
exposed to a buck and are being sold with that understanding. If the doe did not
become bred, no money will be refunded. Bred does are not sold with a
breeding fee attached.
*Bred does are not guaranteed bred. They have been hand bred to one of
our bucks but in most cases it is too soon to tell if they have settled.
If the doe did not settle, no money will be refunded.
*Confirmed Bred (or Pregnant) does are sold guaranteed bred and the
guarantee includes live kids being born. If something happens where live
kids are not born, the breeding fee attached to the sale price will be
refunded when the breeding memo is returned.
We test our herd annually for CAE, always have. In 2012 (our last year
in goats) we tested for Johne's as well. Our most recent herd testing has
been done in April 2016 and all goats on the property over 6 months of
age (because we do have kids out of a number of the does) has tested
Negative for CAE & Johne's.
We currently do not require a deposit for reservations. Reservations
are taken as first come first serve basis.
All Other Deposits
Deposits on animals for sale are $100 or half the purchase price
when half is under $100 such as in wether cases. We require deposits on all animals to hold for sale. No animal will be held
without a deposit. Deposits are not refundable. We also encourage buyers
payments if necessar. I am very easy to work with and do not mind
doing payment plans. Feel free to contact me with questions.
To send a deposit we accept 4 methods:
Paypal If you are making payments, deposits or any other form of
payment and must use a card or bank account as opposed to your paypal

Cash in person if you come out and meet the goats and decide you
would like to purchase a goat but may need to come back at a later time
to pick the goat up. If you need a written receipt, just mention it and
I will write you one.

any money order at this time.

pick-up under any circumstances. Please make checks

When purchasing a goat(s) we will discuss when the goat is supposed
to be picked up. Again I'm very flexible on making arrangements but must
limit how long the goat(s) can stay. If you need your goat(s) to stay
longer than a couple weeks (past weaning etc) please let me know so we
can discuss it.
If the original arrangements to pick-up your goats must be changed
and it involves a lengthier stay, a boarding fee will be added. I will
always notify you of a boarding fee in advance. The boarding fee is
$2.50 a day per goat. This is rarely needed, but occasionally a goat
cannot be picked-up in a reasonable amount of time and boarding maybe
All goats (unless otherwise noted) will come with registration
papers. I will list what kind of papers below per breed. It is rare that
we may have does that are available without papers. I will NOT sell any
goat without papers for a lower price if the animal is a quality animal.
If the animal has a defect then papers will not be available with the
goat and they will be at a discounted price. Pet wethers do not come
with registration papers typically. If you want to have registration
papers with your pet wethers, just ask and we'll supply them.
Mini-Mancha - MDGA (Miniature Dairy Goat Association) & TMGR (The
Miniature Goat Registry) applications come with all Mini-Nubian & Mini-Mancha kids we
sell (unless otherwise noted). Adult goats or goats previously retained
will come with their MDGA & TMGR registration papers. The applications
will be filled in, the sold to section will be left for the new buyer to
fill in. If you have any questions on how any of the registration works
please be sure to ask. We have a separate page on how the MDGA & TMGR
work and how to understand generations and percentages in Mini-Manchas.

Nigerian Dwarfs - ADGA (American Dairy Goat Association) & AGS
(American Goat Association) applications come with all Nigerian Dwarf
kids we sell (unless otherwise noted). Adult goats or goats previously
retained will come with their ADGA & AGS registration papers. The
applications will be filled in, the sold to section will be left for the
new buyer to fill in. If you have any questions on how any of the
registration works please be sure to ask. :)
We accept reservations on all breedings. No deposit
is necessary. Just specify which breeding and
what type of kid you're looking for (ie buck/doe out of so and so and
any other preferences such as generation, blue-eyes or color).
Reservations lock in your spot in line for specific kids and also locks
in pricing since pricing may change after the doe kids. She may really
improve with this freshening (or if she's a first freshener - first time
kidding - then you could be getting kids for much less than if you
We reserve the right to retain any kid born on our farm
to our herd. I try to mark all breedings which I plan to retain kids
from each year to prevent any confusion or problems. I may mark multiple
breedings but when all the kids are born, I often only have so many
slots to fill and often want to keep more than I really can and will end
up having to sell either more kids than I marked retained or may even
have to sell dam's or older yearlings to make room. If you think you
would be interested in any yearlings or adult goats be sure to contact
me about them. I also try to mark any goats I anticipate selling after
kidding too on the breeding schedule. These does are often available in
milk and will be milk stand and hand milk trained. We hope to have a
milk machine for our farm in the future and we will begin training goats
to machine milking too.
Kids sell quickly from the farm during kidding season
so be sure to contact us if you are interested in any kids. Like I
mentioned above, reservations DO require a deposit to lock your place in line for kids. Any kids
not reserved often sell pretty fast.
Pricing is posted on the kidding schedule
for all kids born on the farm. Goats posted on the sales page will have
individual pricing according to their own merit and value. Kid pricing
on breedings is what we anticipate the kid's to be worth. This is
subject to change once the kids are born. If a reservation was put in
before the kid arrived, the price is honored should the kid exceed the
guestimate. If the kid is less valuable than we anticipated then the
price drops and the person with the reservation is notified and they can
choose to withdraw from purchasing the said kid or purchase it at a
All prices on the kidding schedule will be honored on
kids reserved before birth. Once kids are born, their price may change
and increase if they exceed expectation.
