Below is our Sales Policy Please read prior to committing to the purchase of a goat
Purchase of a goat:
We do not sell bottle babies
On the rare occasion that we have a bottle baby to place we maintain a list of knowledgeable goat owners looking for bottle babies. We will never place a bottle baby with a first time goat owner. If you are interested in being added to this list, please contact us directly to discuss.
Goats are herd animals. We will only sell to homes that already have goats or are purchasing multiple goats.
A non-refundable deposit of $100 (per goat) is required to hold a goat until shipping/or kid until weaning
Kids are typically weaned around 10-12 weeks, and allowed to leave for their new home around 12-14 weeks. This way we can ensure all kids transition from nursing to eating solid food before leaving. Please understand we do this to ensure that our kids are healthy when they leave our farm.
All goats must be picked up within 14 days of scheduled pickup date or will revert back to being the property of Nine Acres Farm. No refunds will be given on any money paid unless prior arrangements have been made.
All goats are registered with the Myototonic Goat Registry (MGR) unless otherwise noted and a transfer will be provided. Please note that you must be a MGR member to transfer the goat into your name. If you are registering with another registry, your goat must retain the name on the MGR registration form.
NOTE: we do not rush to register kids for many reasons and because of this when we sell kids their registration paperwork may still be in process. If we do not have their registration papers back you will receive a copy of their papers, along with your transfer, at the time of pickup.
All goats will leave Nine Acres Farm current on shots, deworming, hoof trimming, and with a 10 day supply of feed.
A health management report will also be provided, along with a packet of general goat care information.
Nine Acres Farm guarantees your goat will be healthy when it leaves our farm. Once the goat has left Nine Acres Farm we will not be responsible for any health issues (including costs involved).
If your goat develops a health issue that is hereditary in nature, please contact Nine Acres Farm immediately.
Any buckling can be wethered upon request. We do require your non-refundable payment in full in advance of wethering (does not include kids advertised/sold as wethers).
All refunds are considered on a case by case basis.
Non-refundable deposits can be paid by check, cash, PayPal or Venmo. Payment must be received within 7 days of the purchase date. If payment is not received within that time the goat will be returned to the ‘for sale’ list.
All goats, including any additional fees must be paid in full before they will be allowed to leave Nine Acres Farm.
If paid prior to your scheduled pickup date, payment can be made via check, PayPal or Venmo. If paying by check please allow 14 days days for the check to clear prior to arranging to pick up your goat.
If there is a balance due at the time of pickup it must be paid in cash before your goat will be loaded to leave.
Each state has its own livestock transportation requirements. It is the responsibility of the buyer to research what is needed to bring livestock into your state. Please visit with your local vet or USDA extension office for requirements. Nine Acres Farm will work with you to meet those requirements but all costs/fees are the responsibility of the buyer.
Please note that fines can be expensive for the buyer and seller if you do not have the proper health papers for your livestock. If you choose to transport a goat without proper documentation you agree to pay all fines, including all fines and fees assessed to Nine Acres Farm.
Buyers are responsible for safe transportation accommodations. A crate/carrier is recommended to transport kids, and a trailer or livestock carrier to transport adults.
All goats must have adequate protection from the elements (wind, rain, sun, extreme temperatures, etc.)
Goats must be able to stand and turn around in their carrier
We recommend using hay, straw, or shavings to line the bottom of your carrier
No goat will be allowed to leave tied in the bed of a truck, or in an open trailer
We reserve the right to refuse to allow a goat to leave Nine Acres Farm if we feel their travel accommodations are not secure and safe
We reserve the right to refuse sale to anyone for any reason.
