Kids and adults are AVAILABLE at various times of the year, as Tennessee fainting goats are year round breeders. We milk our goats, so they are bred at a staggered pace in order to try and have a continuous supply of fresh milk. Yes, we do share with the babies....till they are weaned, then its all ours...muahahaha. Check back anytime for availability of kids or adults, and dont hesitate to ask if you see an adult you want or want to reserve a kid from a specific breeding. The fee on each goat includes vaccinations, worming, trimming of hooves, and a good dose of nutri-drench before the animal leaves our farm. We also might include some kefir as well, as all our animals are fed it on a regular basis to help immune support and the digestive system. Please note that discounts are given for multiple purchases including return buyers.
Animal are reserved for the first person who places a deposit. The non-refundable deposit required to reserve your animal until it is weaned(if still nursing unless you want to bottle feed...it makes them SUPER tame) or if your unable to pick up your weaned animal within 7 days time. Deposits must be received within 7 days or we will once again make the animal available to others. For deposits we accept paypal over the internet, USPS money orders sent in the mail, and cash in person. If sending via mail make sure to send it with delivery conformation...and let me know it is on its way so I know to look for it. This is to protect both parties in case of lost or misdirected mail. The remaining balance due is to be in cash at the time of pick up.

A few issues we feel adoptive families should be aware of up front to avoid any confusions/problems arising down the road.
All animals develop at a different rate. On average we try to have our goat kids weaned at around 8 weeks of age, piglets at around 4 weeks of age, and puppies at around 8 weeks of age. We will keep in touch and let you know how your animal is developing and to make arrangements for you to meet us in order to pick up your new addition. If for some reason, you are unable to meet us on the agreed upon date, we will charge a $5.00 per day fee for boarding. Realizing that emergencies do happen from time to time, we will try to work with you to make reasonable arrangements should that occur. If you do not collect your animal within 30 days of the agreed date, the you will forfeit your deposit and we will find it another home. This pertains to any animal with an agreed on pick up date.
Every state has their own laws governing what tests are required to transport certain animals into their state. You can check with your vet, as to what is needed, or visit the web site listed HERE to see what tests are required(if any) to enter your state. We require 72 hours notice if a health certificate is needed for transportation to your state. Our vet has a very busy practice. The Health Certificate cost and farm call will be paid by the buyer.
All Health Certificates are the responsibilities of the buyer. Usually there is a farm visit charge and a charge for the physical inspection plus the charge for any blood work done.
We hope you make the animals comfortable and keep them safe during the transport to their new home. We request that the buyer use either a dog crate large enough to accommodate the size of the animal that you are transporting, truck with cap, stock trailer, or other appropriate means to transport please. If your crate will be in an open truck bed we ask that you tarp the crate to protection from the wind, rain, sun, etc. We ask that you place enough bedding in any of the above mentioned means of transport to allow the animals to be comfortable...in other words, just use common sense please.
After you have pick up your animal we are no longer responsible for it, though we will help in any way we can to insure both it and you are happy.
