Bit O' Hope Dairy Goat Farm keeps no reserve list first come first serve. No deposits are taken on kids until they are born and determined by Bit O' Hope Dairy Goat Farm to be healthy. A potential buyer must then put a $50.00 or $100.00 deposit to hold their kid; this will hold an animal till a set date is determined for a pickup, in which the buyer must arrange for pickup or transport. This is none refundable!
A goat is not considered sold until a deposit is received to hold it. Deposits shall be in the amount of $50.00 for any buck and a $100.00 deposit for any doe. This deposit will hold their kid until a certain date is set in which the buyer must arrange for pickup or transport. Animals not picked up within the 10 day period of your set pick-up date, may incur a $1.50 per day boarding fee. After 30 days from a set pickup or purchase date, the animal will be placed back on our for sale list, and any monies paid toward that animal will be forfeited by the buyer. All deposits are NONREFUNDABLE, except for death or illness of a kid that takes place while they remain on our farm before their pickup or purchase dates. In that instance, the deposit may be directed toward another kid or refunded, at the discretion of Bit O' Hope Farm. All sales are made on a first come first serve basis. Keeping buck kids intact out of first fresheners will be determined by their quality and the does udder and milking performance after kidding, an exception might be made to sell a quality buckling from a first freshener with registration papers for a set price.
We will not sign a agreement from any buyer of their own making or contract! I would hope that you don't feel you need to ask us to do so, and that you would trust us!
Personal checks are accepted only on deposits or if the animal is paid for in full at least two weeks before your pickup date. Cash is required if animal is paid for at pickup. All sales are final. We cannot guarantee the care a goat will be given once it leaves our farm and we accept no returns.
Kids who are weaned and ready for pickup or transported at approximately 7 weeks of age, or 8 weeks of age if they are flying! They will have at least their first CD/T vaccination, worming, hoof trimming, dehorned and be tattooed prior to pick up. If they are a bottle baby they will be ready for pickup or transported by you the buyer, you have to pick these kids up, they will not fly until 8 weeks of age. They will be dehorned and tattooed prior to pick up. Bottle babies are sold at a discount, please ask about it. Veterinary health certificates (required by law for interstate travel) and fees charged by the Veterinarian for the farm call and animal examination and/or tests are the responsibility of the purchaser. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs including crates as well as any testing and/or health certificates required by your state to fly. There is a $50 fee for transport to the airport and/or to shows. We fly out of Huntsville Airport in Huntsville, Al. For a shipping crate, they can be purchased from a supplier of your choice and shipped to us. All crates must be airline approved if shipping by air. Shipping is done at buyer's risk. We cannot be held responsible for circumstances beyond our control which occur after an animal has left our farm.
We sell animals that are healthy and sound at the time of transfer. We cannot guarantee that they will mature as you or we would expect. We cannot guarantee their mature conformation, stature, udder attachment, show ability, quality of their offspring, etc. There are many factors involved in the development of an animal including feeding, health care maintenance, parasite control, housing, breeding, stress, etc. We cannot take responsibility for how a kid you purchase from us ultimately matures. We do not guarantee that a purchaser will like an animal they purchase from us. An animal represents a genetic package. We are not under obligation to take any animal back once it has left the property.
If a buyer wants to see an animal before purchase, that’s wonderful—she or he may come out to the farm to see the animal. For long-distance purchases we will do our best to realistically represent the animal with photos and descriptions. All sales are final.
Adult does and bucks that are sold as "proven" means they have produced for us here at Bit O' Hope Dairy Goat Farm. That is the extent of our guarantee as there is no way we can guarantee what they may do when they leave here. Because we cannot guarantee the care given to the animals once they leave our farm, no refund or replacement will be offered unless a certified Veterinarian statement or Necropsy report states that the animal was unhealthy because of a genetic problem or circumstances that could only be caused before the buyer had taken possession of the animal, or unless the animal was sold as pet quality or wethered. Any animal purchased as pet quality or unregistered will not qualify for a replacement or a refund for any reason! Any illness or injury attributed to buyer care or lack thereof will not warrant return of purchase price or replacement of any animal. Any cost associated with replacement of animal, such as shipping & health certificate, ect., will be the responsibility of buyer.
We do not guarantee the fertility of does unless hermaphroditism becomes apparent as the animal matures, in that case we will replace your animal with another. Also a vet health checkup and a letter stating the problem and condition of the animal, has to be provided to us, before we consider anything! A doe sold as bred is not guaranteed to be pregnant, just that she received normal service from the buck.
We do not guarantee any animal that is sold without registration papers and/or as a pet.
Any further guarantees are neither expressed nor implied. We have no idea what sort of care or treatment our goats receive once they leave our possession; therefore you are responsible for their health and well-being. We love our animals and hope you will, too.
Bit O' Hope Dairy Goat Farm reserves the right to retain any kids born on our farm at any time.
