At GottaGoat Farm, we strive to raise happy, healthy animals. All of our goats are loved dearly here, and we want to ensure any of our goat sales are to fantastic homes. We only have a small number of goats available for sale each year, so please see below for our procedure to reserve one of our goat kids in advance. For people new to goats, we are here to help! We will provide you with additional information to help keep your new goats healthy and safe. Feel free to ask any questions you might have and we will do our best to help!

Purchasing Information & Terms and Conditions of Sales
If you would like to reserve one of our goat kids in advance, we will require a $100 deposit for each kid. You can let us know your kid preference from our planned Breeding Schedule, and the gender you would like (doe or buck). We will keep you updated once our new kids are available. If the kid of your choice is not available, you can either choose from another of our available kids, or we will gladly refund your deposit if we don’t have anything available that meets your needs. The deposit is not refundable on canceled orders.
In all cases, we reserve the right to retain any kids for our own breeding purposes.
Taking Your New Goat Home
Our kids will be assessed and ready to leave our farm at approximately 10 weeks of age, and full payment will be required for any confirmed reservations before the kid(s) can leave for their new home. All of our kids are kept with their dams for as long as possible up to this time. We will work with you to determine a suitable date for them to go to their new home, however, if kids are not picked up within one week of the agreed upon date, your deposit will be forfeited, and the kid will be offered for sale to the next interested party.
Transportation of all goats will be the buyer’s responsibility. Depending on location and timing, delivery may be available for an additional fee. If a goat is to be shipped, the buyer is responsible for all costs and arrangements.
All of our goats are healthy upon leaving our farm, to the best of our knowledge. We are here to help with any issues that may develop, but we cannot be held responsible for an animal, nor can we offer refunds on any goat once it leaves GottaGoat Farm. We are also unable to offer guarantees on size, milk production, future health, show quality and scurs (if they develop on any goats which have been disbudded), as these are characteristics that are outside of our control. However, if you are needing to re-home a goat, please contact us and we will try to help out.
For any of our kids that develop horns, we prefer to leave their horns naturally intact. We understand that is not always everyone’s preference, but we have both horned and polled (naturally hornless) goats living together here, and they all get along very well! If you would like any information about keeping a goat with horns, or would like to discuss this in more detail, please contact us and we will be happy to chat with you.
Wethers (Fixed Males)
With any of our bucks that are offered for sale, we will keep them intact until they have found their new home. If you would like to purchase a wether (a castrated male), we strongly believe in having a vet perform the surgery at an appropriate age, to help reduce the risk of future issues with urinary calculi and to allow for better urethral development. We also believe this method can reduce the risk of infection and retained testicles, and helps to ensure the kids undergo the least traumatic experience and can receive appropriate sedation and pain management for the procedure.
Deposits and payments can be made through e-Transfer, cash, or we can now accept debit payments at the farm. Full payment (less your initial deposit) will be required before your kid can leave our farm.
We are more than happy to arrange a viewing of our goats. We are located just outside of Penticton, BC. Please contact us in advance – we’d love to have you come for a visit. Note that if you have not yet purchased or have a deposit on a goat from us, we will charge our normal farm visit rate. However, if you do purchase a goat from us, we will gladly discount your goat purchase by the amount of your farm visit!
We want to ensure that each of our goats is going to a safe and healthy environment where they will be well cared for, and we are more than happy to assist you in finding the right goat to fit your home. However, if this is your first goat experience, it is important to do your research to prepare for their arrival and care. Goats are herd animals, and will need at least one other goat companion to thrive and be happy. In addition, they require adequate shelter, solid fencing, and the appropriate food and supplements to keep them healthy. Again, we can advise on how to get ready for your new animals, and would love to work with you to answer any questions you may have. However, we do reserve the right to refuse sale of any of our goats if we feel it is not in their best interest.
