If you are interested in a Pumpkinvine Creek Farm kid, please put a deposit on your first choice kid ASAP. Kids will be sold at 12 weeks of age. If you place a deposit before kids are born, it is $50 to reserve first choice from a particular breeding. The deposit can be made through paypal.
A deposit of $50 will reserve your first choice of available kids from a particular breeding. This means that once the kids are born, we will choose any kids we would like to retain and you get first pick of other kids from that litter. Once the kids are on the ground we will require 50% of the kid's purchase price to hold the kid until weaning date. No goat will leave this farm unless it is paid in full. We only accept cash the day the kid leaves. If you want to pay with personal check you will need to send it ahead of time so it can clear prior to pickup date.
All kids must be picked up by 12 weeks old if they are being dam raised. Any baby staying past 12 weeks will be subjected to a boarding fee of $5 per day. We normally dam raise kids but there are certain circumstances when bottle feeding will become necessary. If your kid becomes a bottle baby, it will need to be picked up by 6 weeks at the latest. If you do not pick up your bottle baby until weaning at 12 weeks, the daily boarding fee will apply to the kid's final balance or you can choose to forfeit your right to that kid.
All kids will be disbudded prior to sale unless they are PAID IN FULL, in advance, and requested not disbudded.
We reserve the right to retain any kid born here, even if we have taken a deposit on it. If for any reason we are unable to sell you the kid that you put a deposit on, it will be refunded unless there is another kid available that you would like instead. If you change your mind for any reason and do not buy your kid, the deposit will not be refunded. We reserve the right to offer intact bucklings at buck price for a certain amount of time before offering them as wethers.
If you place a deposit on unborn kids and then refuse certain kids based on color or other aesthetic variables, your deposit will not be refunded.
We can make no guarantee as to the health of our goats after they leave the farm. Stress of weaning and travel can bring on illnesses that were not present at the time the goat left the farm. Once the goat leaves our property, they become your responsibility and we will not refund you for any reason. Due to biosecurity reasons, we will also not buy a goat back that has left our property.
Goats are herd animals and should not live alone. We will only sell a single goat to someone who already has goats. When buying a Pumpkinvine Creek Farm goat kid, you are agreeing to provide it with proper feed and shelter from the elements.
Our herd is tested for CAE, CL and Johnes yearly and is negative.
