If you are interested in getting a goat or sheep from us we ask that you fill out a questionnaire (located at the bottom of this page). We will ask things like: what is your main purpose for this goat, lamb, or piglet? Milking? Showing? Hobby Farm Pet? Meat? Fibre? Breeding? Matching you up with the best animal for YOU is our main goal. Please read our page "getting started with your first kids/lambs" for more information.
We will take names for the following spring 2020 waitlist for kids and lambs as of October 1, 2019.
Registered Goats: If you are interested in reserving goat kids, please fill out our reservation questionnaire. Once we receive your form, we will contact you. We do require a $50 non-refundable deposit per reservation. We will take into account if you would prefer a specific breeding, or specific characteristics, but cannot guarantee this. Once the kids are born, we will notify you around a week or two after, and you have 48 hours to respond. At that time, half of the total is due to hold the kid or we notify the next on the list. You can pass and ask to be notified when the next kids are available. We reserve the right to retain any kids we choose. We also only choose the best kids we deem worthy of being a herdsire, not all bucklings are potential herdsire's and thus some will be wethered for pets. The only case where your deposit is refundable is if your goat gender of choice is not available. **IF you would like to be notified if any goat kids become available but are not ready to commit with a deposit yet, you can fill out the questionnaire and just specify in the notes.
Registered Sheep: Please let us know if you are interested in reserving babydoll lambs. You can let us know your preference in colour, however it is not guaranteed. We require you to specify how many and what gender lamb you would like, and then put a $100 non-refundable deposit down for each lamb. Once the lambs are born, we will notify you about a week later, and you have 48 hours to respond. At that time, half of the total is due to hold the kid or we notify the next on the list. If your lamb gender of choice is not available, you will be offered choice of any remaining lambs or deposit will be refunded. *IF you would like to be notified if any lambs become available but are not ready to commit with a deposit yet, you can fill out the questionnaire and just specify in the notes.
Registered Pigs: If you are interested in reserving piglets, please fill out our reservation questionnaire. Once we receive your form, we will contact you. We do require a $200 non-refundable deposit per reservation. You can specify a preference for colour, but please be aware this is not always possible depending on what is born. For registered breeding stock, IF we don't have a breeding quality piglet born of your specified gender, we will refund your deposit if you wish. You can also hold your deposit until the next litter.
Deposit payment can be made in either cash, cheque (mail), or email money transfer. As the breeder, we reserve the right to retain any offspring born on our farm regardless of reservations. Our goats and lambs are guaranteed healthy when they leave our farm, after that we are not responsible once they leave our care. We do our best with disbudding kids but we cannot guarantee that they will not develop scurs- most intact male goats do develop scurs despite our best efforts (ALL of our adult males have them). We use a figure eight method on the boys.
Pick-up will be within 1 week of the date agreed upon, unless other arrangements are made (we do ship, through comox or victoria airports, and we often take trips to the mainland and can deliver to a meeting point). If not picked up on time, a $2 per day fee will apply until pick up.
All payment must be made in full before animals leave the property.
Thank you and we hope we can provide you with what you are looking for! Are you ready to reserve your new goat kid or lamb? Please click on the link below:
**Please note that sheep and goats are herd animals and need at least one other buddy for companionship. We will not sell you a single animal if you do not have other animals of the same breed already.
**We want to make sure you are fully prepared to provide your new goats, sheep, or pigs with a wonderful home that suits their needs. Please don't hesitate to ask questions, we are here to help!
If you buy from us and later need to re-home your goat or sheep, please contact us first. We may know someone interested or be interested in adopting them back ourselves.
