OUR 2018 kids arE all spoken for, but if you would like to be on our waiting list For 2019, send us an email.
Why our goats are special: We hear from everyone who buys our goats that of all the places they visit, our kids are the most friendly. They are like puppies who love to be held and played with. Many visitors come by to hold the kids as they are born and in the 8 weeks before they are picked up, so they love people.
If you are interested in a milking goat, you can rest assured that we are breeding for the best milkers we can as a licensed dairy. Because our herd is mostly complete this year, we will be selling even our best doelings. A great year for buyers looking to expand or begin a dairy herd.
We are taking names and email addresses now for next years kids. Putting in your name will get you on the list. In October we will contact people on the list and collect deposits. We ask people to put down a deposit of $50. to reserve a goat early, which will give you first right of refusal on the goats born this spring. (This deposit is nonrefundable, except in the case of unforeseen major life events, as it covers the expenses leading up to kidding and the time we put into communicating and meeting with new owners.) In 2018, we completed the deposit list in October 2017, so consider early and act quickly. We love that we develop a relationship with owners and are sure all our goats are going to loving well prepared homes each year.
Once the kids are born, they need 8 weeks with their mom to drink milk and get strong, so in mid June/early July they are ready for new homes. At pick up, people pay the balance which depends on the kid’s mother. Neutered males are $150. The doelings and ducklings are $350. Goats must be sold in pairs unless they are purchased as a companion for another goat that is already owned by the purchaser.
After you take the goats home (and as you prepare) we are happy to answer questions as they come up. We love our goats and want them and the people who love them to be happy.
All goats we sell will be disbudded (unless you ask us when they are born to keep the horns), vaccinated, neutered and assigned numbers in case you decide to register and tattoo them.
We now have some serious dairy stock. As you go through our doe’s pedigrees, you will see some of the finest bloodlines in the country, including: Old Mountain Farm, Twin Creeks, Rosasharn, Prairie Wood, Stonewall, Denning Hill, Spring’s Run, Dawnland, Valley View, Morning Star, Flat Rocks and Fairlea. (I am working to add lineage of each of our does to the Our Goat Herd Page and on adding udder shots.) All of our goats are registered with the American Goat Society (AGS). If you choose to, yours can be too! We will give each new owner registration papers.
Our whole herd tested negative for CAE and Brucellosis in 2011. Since then any new additions have been from tested herds. Meghan and Kelsey at Annabessacook Veterinary Service helps us keep all our does and kids in the best possible health.
As we have had more and more kids each year, we have focused on energy on communicating with new goat parents and posting to Facebook, and have not posted their pictures on the website, but below are some pics of the kids from earlier years!
