How to BUy a goat

At Curbstone Valley Farm our mission is to raise well socialized, happy, and productive dairy goats. Our herd is an enormous investment of time, and resources, and it is important to us that our animals find the best possible home where they can live up to their potential.

All too often, we receive random emails asking simply if X or Y goat has a doe/buck available, with no further information about why that particular animal is of interest, or if the person making the inquiry even has an existing herd of goats.

To make communication more efficient, if you have not purchased an animal from us in the past, we ask that you complete this brief pre-purchase questionnaire. The more information you can provide, the better we will understand your desires, needs, and expectations, to ensure we can provide you with the best possible match.

Once the questionnaire is completed, we will contact you at the email address provided, to advise as to whether the breeding(s) have available space on the waitlist, or the animal of interest is still available for sale. 

No animals will be considered reserved without a deposit in hand.

A number of quality animals disappear each year into well-intentioned homes, only to find themselves for sale within 12-24 months, and then disappear into obscurity. As the health, welfare, and happiness of our animals is of utmost importance to us, we hope you’ll take the time to introduce yourself to our goats, and help them understand why they’d love to come and live with you.


Please answer the questions as completely as you can. Questions marked with an * are required. For other questions, if not applicable, simply scroll on to the next question. Thank you, and the goats look forward to hearing from you!
