Our reservation list is free! So if there’s some goat you’re dreaming of, there’s no harm in putting yourself on the list. If you are on the reservation list and the kid you desire is born and available, we will contact you within ~3 days of the birth. At that time a $200 deposit will be required to hold the kid for you and schedule a pick up date (balance due at pickup). We like to keep the kids at least 8 weeks before they are weaned. If goat(s) are not picked up within 2 weeks of their scheduled pick up date, a boarding fee may be incurred. If the kid perishes in this time (things happen, sadly) your deposit can be refunded or transferred to another available kid. In order to continue our quality breeding program, it is vital for us to keep a handful of kids in our herd from each year’s breedings. Therefore, Twin Pear Farm retains first right of refusal on every kid born here, regardless of the reservation list.
Breeding doelings and in-tact bucklings departing Twin Pear Farm will be disbudded, tattooed and have their ADGA registration submitted prior to pick up. We offer the addition of an EID for $7. Wethers and pet quality kids will be disbudded, but will come without papers.
Goats traveling out of state will require a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection. The cost of a CVI is the responsibility of the buyer and up to the veterinarian (currently local rates for a CVI are around $60). We will not send a goat out of Oregon without the proper documentation.
Once a kid leaves our farm, their health and vitality is your responsibility. We are not responsible for any illness or death that may occur after your goat(s) leave our property (there are never any guarantees with live animals. Things happen.). We HIGHLY encourage you to do your homework before bringing your goats home and also keep a close eye on them to catch any illnesses early. Goat kids are highly susceptible to coccidiosis and pneumonia (both potentially fatal) to name a few. Goats should be fed an appropriate diet for their sex and stage of life (growing kid, wether, lactating dam, etc.) and regular access to hay, fresh clean water, and high quality free choice minerals are a must. A field and browse are not enough. Please visit our YouTube Tutorial Channel for information on all of these topics and many more. Message us if you have a question or concern about your goat at anytime! We’d rather you ask than not.
In the following situations, we can offer a refund or animal of equal quality/value: unable to breed due to freemartin or hermaphroditism; double teat, teat spur or misplaced orifice. We do not make any other guarantees and animals are purchased as-is.
We participate in “proving” our goats through ADGA Performance Programs (Linear Appraisal, DHIA Milk test and ADGA sanctioned shows). These programs come at great time and cost, but we think our goats are worth it. We want every goat leaving our farm to be of excellent quality and go on to do good things for you in the milk pail and show ring. Our prices reflect this depth of work. Below is a rough guideline about how our goat kids are priced. Keep in mind that some goats may be more or less than reflected here depending on each unique case. If an expensive breeding was used or a goat was brought in from a great distance, this may be reflected in the price of the kid. If there is a specific kid or breeding you are interested in, contact us for their price.
