Step 1: Read “Multifarious Information”
So you know more about us and how we manage our herd
Step 2: Make sure you comprehend our farm policies
Our goats are guaranteed to be genetically reproductively sound. Since we do not know or control the environmental conditions and possible hazards sold goats will experience once they leave Crookedcedar Farm, we are not responsible for the health or development of the goats after they leave the farm. You have the right to have any goat you purchase examined by a Veterinarian at your expense.
Since herd health is paramount here, we generally do not take back goats once they leave the farm.
Our goats are priced according to quality, pedigree and genetic potential. The price of a reserved kid will not increase, but may decrease upon current evaluation. Prices may increase on unreserved kids after they are born and are evaluated. Any kids that we are interested in retaining will be highlighted as such. All others are marked “available” and may be purchased. Some may be for sale to show homes only. Buck kids will become wethers if current evaluation of them and their dam warrants such measures.
We reserve the right to terminate any sale if we feel it is in the best interest of the goats and/or the purchaser. We also reserve the right to refuse to sell animals marked “available” if circumstances warrant such measures.
Step 3: Reserve Your Goat
No deposit is necessary to reserve an unborn kid.
Once the kid is on the ground, a $100 deposit is required.
(This is non-refundable if the buyer backs out of the sale.)
A $50 deposit will reserve a wether. (Also non-refundable)
This deposit will “hold” your kid for 60 days after which a boarding fee of $2.00/day will be added to the price of the goat.
After 90 days all deposits are forfeited and the goat will be placed back on the “sales page”.
We will refund deposit, or replace kid as best as available should something happen between deposit and departure.
A $100 deposit (non-refundable) is required to hold adult goats for 30 days after which a boarding fee of $2.00/day will be added to the price of the goat.
The goat will be held for an additional 30 days after which all deposits are forfeited and the goat is placed back on the “sales page”.
We will refund deposit should something happen to the goat between deposit and departure.
All animals must be paid in full before they leave Crooked cedar Farm.
