SALES INFORMATION


Email us through our contact page if you're interested in a certain breeding or have any questions. We don't take deposits until kids have been born and you have made a definite choice. 


We welcome you to come and take a look at the new kids when they arrive and spend time getting to know your kid after you decide. We do ask for a non-refundable deposit of 50.00 to hold a kid until it's ready to go to it's new home. 


PRICES

We have found that we cannot put all of our confidence in a goat’s pedigree. All a pedigree can guarantee ( hopefully:) is that a goat is a purebred.


Therefore; our prices will never be based on pedigree, but rather on the good qualities we see in a kid after it is born. 


Does start at 300.00

Bucks start at 250.00

Wethers will be sold for 100.00


If we feel that a kid doesn’t have the potential to improve our herd or others, we will sell that kid without papers at a lower price.


We take selling a kid seriously, because we want each kid to have a good home when it leaves our farm. Nigerians do make wonderful pets, but the level of care ( in our opinion) exceeds that given to your normal house pet! 


We will be happy to help out new goat owners with the experience we've had, or point them to resources to help them to be the best goat parents!








Because we are a closed herd, all parents will be on the farm, for you to take a look at. But, also, because we keep our herd closed for health reasons, we will not be able to "take back" a kid once it leaves the farm. 

Of course if you can show us - with a vets verification - that there is a medical defect in the kid, we will gladly return the price paid.


This of course does not include "faults" that prevent the kid from growing up to be a champion or milk a gallon per day:)

Hopefully we will have discussed that all before the sale.


At this time, we aren't prepared for out of town/state shipping, but would be willing to work together to make that possible for future buyers. 

 



We prefer to have all of kids dam raised. This is not only best for the kid nutritionally, but good for the mom, and good for the person that would rather not milk all the grieving moms!


Kids will be available after they are 2 months old ( or less if we have another buckling like Willie that "matured" a little too soon to be kept with the girls!) at that time they will be weaned from their mom, eating grain, hay, taking herbal wormer balls, and drinking water.


We do not vaccinate or chemically worm our goats. They will be taking an herbal wormer which you can continue after they leave, or chemically worm if you choose of course.


Each kid will be disbudded between 1-2 weeks old and should be healed by the time they leave here. We feel the few seconds of pain the kid feels is not as bad as the injuries that can happen with horned goats.


No buckling will be sold as a registered breeder unless his dam has earned her "BelleMeadow milk star" ( 2 lbs of milk or more after 100 days fresh. Since I only milk once a day- the lbs of milk will not represent the amount of milk the dam is able to produce. 2xs a day milking would give about 3/4 more lbs. Butterfat will be judged on how well it sticks to the sides of the milk bottle after one day!:} ( not real accurate- but a good judge!)


Each kid will be registerable to AGS, ADGA and NDGA --we will provide the necessary application form. If you allow us to name your kid - we will pay for his/her registration! 



We do, of course, reserve the right to retain any kid that is born on the farm!
