Sales Terms and Conditions

The down payment on each doe, buck or wether is $75, is not refundable, and must be received in order to reserve that goat for your purchase.

 

Final payments are due before the goats leave our farm. Kids can typically be picked up at 12-14 weeks of age or later.

 

Multiple sales of young stock and sales to 4H participants are discounted 20%.

 

These additional conditions also apply to the sales agreement:

 

The pick-up date will be mutually agreed upon as part of the sales agreement. If the goat is not picked up within two weeks of the negotiated pick-up date, the buyer will forfeit the animal as well as the down payment.

 

The buyer is responsible for the cost of transportation and must inform us how the goats will be transported before the pick-up date. All goats must be transported in an adequately sized, covered, ventilated, safe vehicle, where they may comfortably, and safely, stand, turn around and lay down. If the buyer shows up to pick up the goats that do not meet these criteria, we retain the right to refuse to release the goats and/or cancel the sale.

 

We can provide a veterinary health certificate, but the cost of certificate will be added to the sales price and includes the vet's farm call fee and other services needed to produce the certificate. Please let us know early if you need a certificate.

 

We will not sell just one goat to anyone unless they already have goats or horses.

 

We reserve the right not to sell our goat to any potential buyer.
