Since returning to the world of raising goats, we have decided to change our policy on selling. Going forward, goats will be sold on a first come, first served basis. We will no longer keep a waiting list of any kind, however, feel free to keep in touch if you think you will be interested in something we may have in the future. Our Facebook group, Crosby Lake Farm, will provide the most up to date information.
To hold a goat, you must put down a $100 deposit. Deposits are accepted by PayPal or cash ONLY, and only hold your chosen goat for one week. After one week, if you would still like to purchase the goat and not forfeit your deposit, there is a $5 daily fee for boarding.
The remaining balance must be paid in cash at pick up. Do not arrive to the farm with a check, PayPal, or other method of payment. Cash is all that will be accepted.
Kids will be sold on bottles only. We do not dam raise. We will be happy to bottle feed your kid(s) at our boarding rate of $5 per day, per kid plus the cost of milk/supplements/vaccines/other routine maintenance. Kids will go home on goat milk, cow milk, or a combination of the two. You will be given enough of what is being used to transition to the milk of your choosing. Our first choice is goat milk, with cow milk coming in at a close second. We do not recommend replacers of any kind or goat milk from untested animals. If you chose either of those options, we will not be available for advice on further care.
Kids will be disbudded and tattooed before leaving. Under no circumstances will we allow any kid to keep horns.
First time goat owners will receive a suggested care sheet with basic information on what we do here at Crosby Lake Farm as well as all registration documents, if applicable.
We do NOT, under any circumstances, sell single goats to single goat homes. You MUST purchase at least two goats if you do not already have others.
Wethers are fixed male goats and make the best pets. They are always $100 each, and must be brought back to be wethered around 7 weeks of age. Registered kids are $300+. We will not sell a registerable doe kid, as a pet, "without papers", and at a discounted rate unless she has a conformational defect, in which case the cost of the kid will be $200.
We will discount for multiples. The discount will depend upon what is being purchased, feel free to ask when inquiring.
This guy is a full sibling to CapriNew J. Kobalt on our doe page. Go there for more pedigree info and pictures! He is on a bottle and will be 8 weeks old on April 28th.
