It’s that time of year, and we need to get rid of goats again!

We have lots of adorable bucklings and doelings, as well as a few adults available.

SOLD! Normally, a mature female would be $200, with an extra $50 if in milk, and $75 for weaned bucklings. But you can have 4-year-old Crimson and her ~20-week buckling for just $200 — $125 off!

She is currently giving a bit under a litre per day, which should be plenty for a household or small family. She is friendly and curious, and her little boy is adorable. She is not our best milker, but not the worst, either, and that’s why she’s on sale. If you just want enough for some cereal and coffee milk, you don’t need a huge producer, anyway! Even if you don’t want the milk, they will make excellent lawn-mowers and brush-clearers. (See first photo.)

All our goats come with lots of hand-holding, too. We want you to be successful!

Others available:
SOLD! Loosey, 3-year-old female. She did not breed last year for whatever reason. Might she breed again? You can try, but we’re selling her at “meat” or brush-removal pricing: just $100 — $100 off!
SOLD! Freckles, 2-year-old female in milk. She lost two babies at birth, and will need some training on the milking stand. As a “first freshener,” she is not producing lots of milk, but that usually improves with subsequent breedings. Beautiful spotted Nubian. Meat pricing: just $100 — $250 off! (See second photo.)
• Lots of adorable bucklings and doelings. They are priced at $50 for boys and $100 for girls, at four weeks, at which point, they’ll need an additional eight weeks of milk. Or wait for them to be weaned for an extra $25 ($75 for boys, $125 for girls). Two bucklings SOLD! with one still available.

All kids feature free elastic-band de-horning. The weaned boys are all elastic-band castrated. (If you buy a boy before weaning, we’ll castrate him for you between 8-12 weeks.)

We're on Salt Spring Island, but bring a dog collar and a lead, and we will meet you at the ferry with your new caprine friend, and you can walk it on, to save the cost of bringing a car over!
