All our babies are bottle raised and love human affection! We have baby goats for sale (kids) dwarf and miniature dairy goats, adults and babies for sale.  We also have a small selection of mini Alpine and mini Sannen kids which are a cross with a Nigerian Dwarf buck so they are smaller than the standard breeds, but larger than a Nigerian Dwarf.

Questions about buying a new goat?

When looking to buy a new goat, it is important to know what your goals are. Are you looking for excellent milk production? Are you looking for goats with the potential to be show goats? Are you just wanting some super cute little goats as pets? Are you looking for registered goats? Here are some answers to some of the most common questions new goat owners ask.

  1. Should I buy a registered goat?
  2. There are many reasons that buying registered goats make sense. It costs the same to feed and care for a registered goat as it does for an unregistered goat. Registered goats are generally going to be more expensive, but there is long term value to consider... read more...

  3. What type of shelter do goats need?

  4. Goats need basic housing to keep them dry (goats HATE to get wet) and to protect them from wind during the winter. Do you have predetor issues? Coyotes, bear and fox can all be predators of goats, but the #1 killer of goats is... read more....

  5. What type of fencing do goats need?

  6. Your goats will need a large enough fenced in area for them to be able to run around, jump and play. If they are not going to be on pasture, their fenced in area should still ... read more...

  7. What do goats eat?

  8. Goats are browsers, they love many weeds, pasture grasses, leaves and shrubery. There are some plants that are poisonous to goats. Some are more poisoness than others... read more...

  9. What type of care do goats need?

  10. Are goats hard to take care of? Do goats require a lot of care? Not really so much! Other than providing clean water every day, free choice minerals ... read more...

Baby Goats

Unless otherwise indicated, all baby girls (and their wether companions if applicable) are ready to go to their new homes - ON A BOTTLE - between 3 and 4 weeks old. They will need to be fed 3x a day for at least a few weeks and then can be weaned to 2x a day. Girls should be bottlefed for a minimum of 12 weeks old. Boys stay on their moms if I don't have a deposit on them before they turn 1 week old and are available at 8 weeks old. WETHER ONLY SALES... There is a minimum purchase of 3 wethers for those that would like to purchase wethers only. :)

ALL GOATS COME WITH A STARTER MEDICATION KIT!!!! This will include medications that you should have on hand (including enough dewormer for your first year), an instant read digital thermometer, various sized syringes, needles, curved eyedropper and instructions, all in a convenient carrying case... read more...

Wethers are $150 and also come with a starter medication kit.

**For bottle babies, starter kits also include a bottle and nipple specifically designed for goat kids.


A NOTE ABOUT MY PRICING

Listed in order of due Date

Prices start at $250 for mini doe kids, $450+ for Nigerian doe kids, depending on their genetics. We do have multiple purchase discounts! $50 off 2, $100 off 3!! wethers are $150. No multiple purchase discounts on wethers, mini alpines or mini saanens. Wethers are only $75 if purchased as companion. Remember, our kids all come with starter medical kits (see above for details), which is an over $100 value... factor that into your buying decisions! :)

Wondering why all the different prices for different breedings? The prices are based on many factors, including, LA scores from the doe AND her lines, DHIR records from the doe AND her lines, age of the doe (first freshener's kids are going to be generally cheaper, a doe with only a kidding left in her may have their kids priced higher...etc.), predictability of the outcome of the breeding (linebreeding, repeat breeding...etc.).

Reservations are $50 for doe kids and wethers, $100 for bucks, which goes towards purchase price. I don't sell single kids. They at least need a wether companion, even if you have other goats. Wether companions (to girls or bucks) are only $75 (no other discounts apply) and you could easily just sell the companion after your doe kid is well established into the herd. So much better for the kid, so much less stress. Regular price for wethers is $150. No multiple purchase discount on wethers, mini alpines or mini saanens. There is a minimum purchase of 3 wethers for those that would like wethers only. :)

Blanket Reservations:
Reservations on specific breedings take priority over "blanket reservations". Blanket reservations are filled in the order received which is the same order as is listed. I'm happy to take what ever type of reservation you'd like to place. Examples of "blanket reservations" are: "black and white (or what ever your favorite color is) doe kid with companion boy", "two doe kids born in February", "two baby girls priced $550 or less", "doe kid with blue eyes", ...etc. We DO have a LOT of kids born here, so I am normally able to fulfill all blanket reservation requests!
