Sales Policy and Health Guarantee
We recommend (though we do not require) that you purchase goats in pairs. You must own at least one other goat to purchase a single goat from our farm.
We will not sell a doe in milk to an inexperienced first-time goat owner unless the doe has a wether or doe kid sold with her.
Registration papers or application for the American Dairy Goat Association will accompany all breeding stock. It is the responsibility of the buyer to submit the application and.or have the papers transferred to their name.
We require a $100 deposit per goat to hold the goat(s) of your choice. Once you make your choice of goat(s), deposits can be made via PayPal, check, or cash. Deposits must be received by us within one week, or the goat will be made available again. Deposits are NOT refundable. Goat(s) must be paid for in full before they leave the farm. Any payments made at pickup must be paid in cash.
Once a sale is agreed upon, you will have 2 weeks to pick up your goat(s) (unless an alternate agreement has been made). If the goat(s) are not picked up within that 2 weeks, you will be charged $3/day boarding fees for each additional day. If The goat(s) are not picked up after 4 weeks from agreement date, the sale will be forfeited and the goat(s) will become available for another buyer.
There will be NO CASH REFUNDS. If a goat sold as breeding stock proves to be genetically unable to be bred, the buyer must provide us with a signed veterinary report stating the reason for sterility. At that point, the buyer will receive either a replacement goat of equal value or the original purchase price will be credited to the buyer for future purchase(s), to be determined by Kids N Kritters Farm, LLC.
We can arrange to transport goats to any shows we attend (contact us for an up-to-date list), though we prefer that you pick up your goats directly from our farm. However, I travel frequently and will be willing to meet in various locations (e.g. Grand Rapids, Big Rapids, Allendale, Carson City, Grant, or a similar distance from my house) if it does not work for the buyer to pick up the goat(s) directly from the farm.
Goats can be difficult animals to raise and care for. We offer support to all of our buyers and welcome and encourage questions. We also recommend that you thoroughly research goat care BEFORE purchasing your goats.
We raise our goats holistically, completely without chemicals, vaccinations, medications, or conventional feeds. It is very difficult on the goats to switch from being naturally-raised to being cared for conventionally.
We guarantee to inform the buyer of any known health issues or concerns with the goat(s) at or before the time of purchase. Once the goat(s) leave our farm, we make no further guarantees concerning their health. It is the responsibility of the buyer to examine the goat(s) before purchase, and address any concerns BEFORE purchase and address any concerns at that time.
We guarantee our goats test negative of CAE (Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis) and Johne's Disease at the time of purchase. We test our herd yearly, and would be happy to re-test or test for additional diseases at the buyer's expense.
