Goats are herd animals and need the companionship of other goats. Therefore, a minimum of two goats must be purchased unless you already have other goats of the same age. A $50 discount will be given on a wether purchased as a companion to another goat you are buying from us.
Reservations and Deposits
Reservations are free before the kids are born – it’s more like a “wish list” at that point. When a kid is born, we will notify the first person on the reservation list for that kid. You will have 24 hours to respond before we move on to the next person on the list. If you decide to purchase that kid, a 50% non-refundable deposit must be paid within the next 24 hours to hold the kid for you until it is ready to leave. Deposits will only be refunded if the kid becomes ill, has an obvious defect, or has died before the time of pickup.
We reserve the right to retain any kid from any breeding up until a deposit is paid in full. There may be instances where we prefer to sell a kid to a performance home, in which case we may not follow the order of reservation on a breeding. If your reservation is not fulfilled, you must contact us if you want to be on the reservation list for the following year.
Adult goats may occasionally be offered for sale. A 50% non-refundable deposit must be made to hold the animal for you. The balance must be paid before the animal leaves our farm. If you see an adult goat you are interested in, even if she is not listed for sale, please contact us to discuss the possibilities.
We may cancel a sale at any time, if we are uncomfortable releasing an animal for any reason. Deposits will be refunded in full in this case.
Payments are accepted via PayPal or cash. We do not accept checks. Payment must be made in full before or at the time of pickup.
We will not release any goat that is not in excellent health. All kids are fully vaccinated for CD/T. We test all adult goats in our herd annually for CAE, CL, and Johnes; results are available upon request. By taking possession of any animal, you agree to accept it in its current condition and health. Once the animal leaves our property we are no longer responsible for any illness or injury that may occur.
Receiving Your Goat(s)
Kids will be ready to be picked up when they are fully weaned at 10-12 weeks of age. Pickups must be scheduled in advance. All charges must be paid in full before or at the time of pickup. If you do not pick up your goat(s) on the agreed upon date, a $2 per day boarding fee will be assessed. After two weeks the goat will be relisted for sale and your deposit will be forfeited.
Doelings and intact bucklings will come with ADGA registration papers. All animals will be tattooed and disbudded, and have their CD/T vaccination unless other agreements have been made in writing. We do not sell horned goats due to the difficulty of reselling such animals should the buyer need to rehome them at any time in the future.
If transport is being arranged, the buyer is responsible for all fees, testing and health certificates associated with the transport of the goat. We do not offer air transport. A Certified Veterinarian Inspection (CVI) is required by law if you will be traveling outside the state of Maine. The buyer is responsible for the cost, which is $70 plus the farm call fee charged by our vet (usually between $110 and $150). These fees must be paid in advance and are not refundable. We will arrange the inspection on your behalf, however, you are responsible for determining whether your state, or any state(s) you pass through, requires any specific blood tests, cultures, etc.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL. No refunds will be given for any reason once a kid has left our property. If you elect not to follow through with the purchase for any reason, your deposit will be forfeited.
If at any time in the future you decide you no longer want or are able to care for goats you have purchased from us, we retain the right of first refusal. We may, at our discretion, buy the goat back from you at fair market value.
The welfare of our animals is of the utmost importance to us. We are happy to answer any questions you may have now or in the future about the care of the goats you purchase from us.
