SALES TERMS & CONDITIONS
If you are interested in a kid from us, use the form on the kidding schedule to add your name and contact info to our wait list. At this time we require a $100 deposit to put a reservation down. If you do not wish to put this deposit down, there is also a free waitlist so there is no hard commitment to purchasing a kid until the kid is born. However, paid deposits will take precedence over the free waitlist. At the time the kid you desire is born and available, we will contact you within three days. At that time a $100 non-refundable deposit will be required to hold the kid for you and we can schedule a pick up date. If we do not hear back from you within 24 hours of notification, then we will move onto the next person on our list. This deposit will only be refunded if we cannot fill your reservation due to our own retaining or in cases of injury, illness, defect or death of the kid while on our premises. If the kid you wanted was not born, we will offer you the option of another pairing or rolling over your reservation to the following year. We will NOT refund because you have changed your mind, please keep this in mind when placing a deposit!
If you wish to purchase a bottle baby, please inform us upon our birth notification to you so that we can give your kid the best possible chance at taking a bottle. After a certain length of time, it becomes difficult to transition a kid from mom to a bottle. We will not sell more than two bottle kids to one household unless the buyer is an experienced bottle feeder. Bottle feeding can be difficult if it is new to you so we just want to make sure our customers are as well equipped as possible. This is why we also make sure to give our new-to-goats friends a "how to" session on proper bottle feeding as well as provide a packet describing our tips and tricks for bottle feeding kids to provide further guidance.
If you choose to let your new kid be dam raised, the kid will not be ready for pick up until at least eight weeks of age (preferable up to 12 weeks). Bottle kids will be allowed to leave the premises at approximately 2 to 3 weeks of age depending on how well they are doing with their bottle feedings as well as the experience level of the purchaser. Other arrangements can be made on a case by case basis. Any reserved kid must be paid in full at the time of pickup. If we do not hear from you by the arranged date of pickup, we will move onto the next person on the list.
No goats will be sold to homes that do not already have goats unless more than one goat is purchased. Goats require goat companionship and so this is something that is non-negotiable. We are always happy to set you up with a wether companion (at a small cost) for your new kid if you do not have goats yet.
Wethers will not be banded before 12 weeks of age, at this time you are welcome to bring your kid back to us for banding or you can have a person of your choice perform the banding or castration. We do not sell breeding pairs as we feel this sets new goat owners up for failure. If you already own both male and female goats, then we do have other options available that can be addressed on a case-by-case basis.
All kids will be sold with their ADGA registration unless purchasing a wether. Male kids will only be sold with registration paperwork if being purchased as a buck. All bucks and does will be tattooed and disbudded. Kids purchased after three weeks of age will receive CDT vaccination at appropriate ages (four weeks and eight weeks).
You as the buyer are responsible for ensuring there is appropriate transportation for your kid(s) and are responsible for any transportation costs/vet checks/certificates, etc that are required. When an animal needs a CVI (certificate of veterinary inspection), we do not charge any additional fees, we only ask that you cover the cost of the CVI ($70). If your animal needs to cross state lines, please include this $70 when paying the purchase price of your animal. We are happy to work with outside transporters - we personally love and recommend Red River Transport. We have also had pleasant exchanges with and can recommend Nigerian Dwarf Goat Express Transportation, Tarr Valley Farm Transport, and Culver Family Farm Transport as well. At this time, we have not flown kids out but if you are interested in going through this process with us, we are happy to help - the costs associated with flying (crate/supplies/flight/etc) are the responsibility of you, the buyer.
If an animal is found to have a congenital or genetic defect that would disqualify them from the show ring (with exception to height - see below), or prevent that animal from breeding, with medical evidence of such a defect, from a licensed veterinarian and/or accredited veterinary medical teaching hospital, a replacement animal will be offered. Replacements will be from the current or next available breeding season based upon availability. We do our best to breed for animals that fall below the maximum height allowance as set forth by ADGA however we cannot guarantee the height of mature bucks or does.
We fully ensure that our animals are healthy when they leave the farm, however, since shipping and transportation can be stressful we cannot provide a guarantee beyond their departure. When the animal is picked up, whether by you or your choice in transport, remaining payment (including payment for CVI if applicable) must be paid in full. Please contact us if you need help arranging your payments. We do not share any of your personal information with anyone.
You are also welcome to make payments on your animal at any point up until the date of pick up if you so choose. All sales are final. By purchasing a kid from us, you are agreeing to all info listed above.
