Please read the following information before considering adding a goat to your farm: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/assets/gov/farming-natural-resources-and-industry/agriculture-and-seafood/agriservicebc/webinars/sheep_and_goat_manual.pdf
  • Animals are sold on a “where is, as is” basis and guarantees the buyer that the said animal(s) are in good health, are free of injury or disease at the date of sale.
  • And the animal(s) sold is expected that he/she will breed if provided with the proper care, environment, and nutrition.
  • Housing, feed and transportation should be researched and planned ahead. See our link webpage for more information https://wildacres.ca/links/
  • Please plan for high quality feed and goat supplies, prior to picking up your goat (s).
  • We provide our does with 2nd cut alfalfa hay mix, which has a fine texture. Alfalfa mix hay is higher in protein and ensures proper growth and milk supply.
  • Our bucks are also fed alfalfa hay mix, but they are fed less grain treats. They receive grain treats mostly in the colder winter months. Too much grain for bucks can cause kidney stones.

  • We will not be responsible for veterinarian costs incurred by buyer in obtaining such examination and tests.
  • For bio-security reasons, we cannot have goats return to our farm once they have left the property.
