Breedings for spring 2017 kids:
Please see our RESERVATION POLICY at the bottom of the page before committing
to reserve any kid.
Planned breedings for Spring 2018 kids
no breedings planned at this time
Regarding Sales: We reserve the right to refuse to sell our goats to
anyone for any reason. We aren't in the business of breeding goats for
profit and as such have a limited number of kids available.
We apologize in advance if our policies seem overly strict. These policies
exist because of prior experiences with persons who did not honor their
commitments, placing us in an awkward situation.
About Reservations (on unborn kids):Reservations are $50 for each kid our of each reserved breeding
Reservations can be made by PayPal via the PLANNED BREEDINGS page.
Each of our reservations for 2017 kids, currently (Nov 2016)) locks in a $300
total purchase price. We reserve the right to increase that amount
at any time for future reservations.
If you are interested in booking a reservation on a breeding that does not have
a paypal button or has a closed reservations note, please contact us and to help
avoid your mail going to the spam folder, be sure to use the subject line
"2017 Lamancha Kids" to dairy @ parhamfarms.com. We should get back to
you within two days to let you know if we have a wait list for extra kids already
and where you would be on it if you wish to be included.
We will accept checks in the mail, but the reservation will not be
booked until the check is received. If someone else books your
desired reservation before the check is received, you will be contacted
and the check will not be deposited but will be be voided and returned to you.
Please contact us for a mailing address, dairy @ parhamfarms.com you
You can also message us through our Facebook page, Parham Farms. You'll
know its us when you see the profile photo of the burgundy product seal with the
goat in the center.
We will do our best to fill your reservation, but of course we do NOT know ahead of
time how many kids a doe will have or what sex they will be. Once kids are born from
a reserved breeding, we will contact those holding reservations to advise that the reserved
kid was or was not born, and if a refund will be issued (in the case of an unfilled
reservation) or if the reserved kid was born and the remainder of the purchase price sent.
The balance on the kids must be paid by the time the kid is 4 weeks old or is picked up
whichever comes first..If the purchase price is not paid by the time the kids are 4 weeks
old, unless you and I have agreed to other arrangements in writing - via email, the
reservation fee is forfeited, there will be no refund, and
the kid will be offered to the next interested buyer or listed as available on the website.
The balance due must be received before the kid can be picked up. If you wait
to pay the day of pick up, you must bring cash. If you want to pay by check,
please mail the check early enough to allow 7 banking days before pickup is scheduled.
Arrangements should be made as soon as possible for the pick up of any non-nursing
animals. Your deposit holds your animal here for 2 weeks unless
you have contacted us and made prior arrangments for a longer stay. If the animal
you have placed a deposit on stays here beyond 2 weeks, a $5 per day boarding fee will
be charged against your deposit. We will do our best to work with you, but after 4 weeks,
you forfeit the deposit and the animal will be relisted for sale.
Nursing kids are expected to stay on the farm until they can be weaned, which
is typically at 8 weeks. Bottle fed kids can be picked up anytime after they are
two weeks old. We will typically provide you a gallon or two of frozen milk for your
bottle kid if you bring a cooler. If you live nearby we can make arrangements provide
you with milk for your bottle baby until they are 8 weeks old.
When we dam raise kids, we separate buck kids from their dams and sisters at 8 weeks of age,
to prevent any unwanted pregnancies. Though it is unlikely for a buck so young to be able to
inseminate successfully, it can happen any time after they are able to extend their pizzle.
Thus due to limited space, we request buck kids be picked up as soon as possible after they
reach 8 weeks of age. Doe kids need to be picked up by 10 weeks of age unless
prior arrangments exist to avoid a boarding fee of $5.00 per day per kid that will need to be
paid prior to pickup.
Should there be no kid to fill your reservation, or we feel that the kid
born is not acceptable, your money will be fully refunded. If we chose to terminate the sale
at any time or for any reason, all monies you have paid will be refunded. Reservation
Fees and Deposits are not refunded on buyer canceled orders.
Any prices listed on the breeding page are for unborn reserved kids only.
Pricing on unreserved kids is subject to change, at our discretion, either up or
Reservations Fees and Deposits ARE NOT REFUNDABLE IF THE BUYER CANCELS THE SALE. FULLY REFUNDABLE IF THE KIDS ARE NOT BORN.
