Our farm is located in rural East Tennessee. We started keeping Nigerian Dwarf goats in 2011 with a herd of 10 does and doelings and 1 buck. The herd tested negative for CAE in December 2011 and negative again every year with the latest test being done January 2017. My original herd was triple registered with ADGA, AGS and NDGA. We have settled on ADGA for our Registrations and Performance Programs. Any goat we have could also be registered with AGS and NDGA.
Our Sales Policy
Please read carefully and ask questions if you don't understand. Thank you!
My policy is very straight forward. If you want to buy a goat, and I want to sell it to you; then we work out the details. I do reserve the right to change my mind and retain any goat previously offered for sale on this website prior to final sale. Since banks are reluctant to verify funds on checking accounts due to privacy issues (and fraud), I cannot take a check for final payment unless the check can be deposited at least 2 weeks prior to pick up or shipment of the goat. Please bring cash for final payment unless we have a prior arrangement. As of June 17, 2017, I will under certain circumstances take Pay Pal. But please contact me by phone prior to sending a PayPal deposit or payment for a goat. Thank you.
I will now accept reservations on unborn kids only with a $100 non-refundable deposit. The reservation will be for a healthy kid (your choice of doe or buck) from the genetic package offered with the breeding. There is no guarantee of eye color or coat color or color pattern. So please be sure that the genetic package is what you want to reserve. After the kid is born, the buyer will have one week to send the remainder of a deposit equal to 50% of the sale price of the kid. Thank you for your understanding.
Goats offered for sale may be tested for any disease desired at the buyer's expense. A standard Veterinary Certificate of health is available through my vet. Several days notice is required to obtain the health certificate.
Air transport is arranged by and paid for by the buyer with consideration given please to our schedule. We will not be available for early morning flight transport. We can ship by air through United Airlines or American Airlines from McGhee Tyson Airport near Knoxville, TN. When transporting by air, all fees, including the cost of the goat, health papers, shipping cost, and crate for shipping must be paid at least one week before the goat leaves the property. The Airlines require the kennel to be large enough for the kid to stand up without his/her ears touching the top of the kennel, to turn around, and to lay down comfortably. The 24" tall size works best for two to three month old kids. We will not ship a kid in a crate that is too small. The cost of Health Papers will be at least $30. (That is currently what my vet charges and we do not add a fee for obtaining the papers.) However, due to the cost of transporting goats to the airport and the time involved for 2 people delivering the goats 2 hours before take-off and waiting until after take-off we now charge a $100 handling and delivery charge for what amounts to (including drive time) at least a 4 hour time period for 2 people. We appreciate your understanding and thank you for your business.
Goats offered for sale are healthy and free of disqualifying defects at the time of the sale. For obvious reasons, the health of any goat cannot be guaranteed after it leaves Cedar View Farm. Buyers, or their representative picking up the goat, are responsible for checking a goat for signs of illness or injury before they leave the property. Buyers are asked to verify tattoos prior to leaving. No registered goat will leave prior to being tattooed.
When a goat is out of my sight, and therefore out of my control, I can't be responsible for its health or future development or fertility beyond the ADGA recommendations for the sale of breeding stock. Breeding stock bucks are always guaranteed to breed, or a replacement of equal quality will be offered upon the presentation of an official veterinary statement that documents the infertility of the buck. ADGA guidelines will be followed for replacement.
