My herd is registered with the Myotonic Goat Registry (MGR) and all kids sold will be registered with MGR under Nine Acres Farm unless otherwise noted. If you choose to register with another registry, the goat must remain under their MGR registered name.
A transfer application will be provided to you upon payment in full. If the registration on a kid is not back by the time of transport, I will provide you with a copy of their registration, their transfer paperwork, and will forward their registration when it’s received back from MGR.
Deposits and Purchase:
A non-refundable deposit is required to hold a goat. This deposit will be applied to the final purchase price of your goat(s). PayPal is the easiest way to reserve a goat, but upon prior approval checks are acceptable.
Because this deposit is non-refundable please ask questions and research transportation prior to committing to the purchase. If you are interested in a goat and need time to research transportation, I will work with you on an agreeable time-frame to do that however, once a deposit has been put down on a goat it is 100% non-refundable unless something happens to the goat and it can’t be sold.
All goats must be paid in full before your goat(s) will be allowed to leave Nine Acres Farm. This includes any additional veterinarian and transport costs.
Final payments accepted are cash, PayPal, or by check with prior approval. Please keep in mind that checks must clear the bank before the pickup date.
Basic Purchase Price information:
Prices are determined by conformation, bloodlines, and desirable traits such as polled, coat and eye color.
I do not sell pet quality bucks. Those become wethers and make wonderful pets! Occasionally I will have pet quality does for sale. Those are advertised as pet quality, are sold as unregistered, and are not intended to be bred.
Each buyer will be provided with a health management report and copies of my most recent whole herd CL, CAE, and Johne’s testing results.
I guarantee each goat to be healthy when it leaves Nine Acres Farm but I make no health guarantees after the goat(s) leave my property.
If any goat develops health issues and a refund is requested, a health inspection by an agreed upon veterinarian is required and all costs are at the buyers’ expense. Please note that generally speaking, I will only grant refunds if it is determined the health issue is genetic and the breeding/kidding took place on my farm.
I would prefer all goats be picked up in person, but I also understand this is not always possible.
All animals being picked up must be done so in a safe and humane way. If I feel the transportation is not safe and/or sanitary, I reserve the right to refuse to allow the goat(s) to leave.
If this should happen and you do not want to find alternative transportation, I will refund the purchase price of your goat less the non-refundable deposit and any outstanding costs and fees.
Using a transport service
I will be happy to work with you on arranging transportation, however, the shipping agreement will be between the buyer and shipper and Nine Acres Farm will in no way be responsible once the goat(s) have been turned over to the shipper. Research your transporter well.
Transporter pickup – I am willing to meet your transporter within the following boundaries:
Within 30 miles of Nine Acres Farm
Additional distance is $1.00 per loaded mile and subject to prior approval (fees to be calculated and paid prior to transport date)
Between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.
There will be a flat fee of $50 to meet outside of these hours
Meet time and delays
I require a text message or email at least 48 hours in advance of pickup date for verification purposes
I require a text message or email at least 8 hours in advance of pickup time
I will wait 30 minutes for your transporter. If they call and are expected within another 30 minutes and time allows, I will wait, if not, I will return home and the transporter can pick your goat(s) up at Nine Acres Farm or another transport will need to be arranged.
If this should occur, and you do not wish to find alternate transportation I will refund the purchase price of your goat less your non-refundable deposit, any veterinarian costs, all costs related to the attempted meet (see fees above) and a $50 flat fee to cover my time and costs.
I do reserve the right to refuse sale to anyone for any reason.
