Noblet Creek Terms of Sale for Livestock
We love you’ve chosen Noblet Creek for your next herd addition! Our goal is to provide you with the best animal possible and we would appreciate the opportunity to help you in your choice.
Reserving a Noblet Creek Kid
Prices for kids are listed on our doe pages along with current availability and the sire of those kids. Listed pricing is for pick up at the farm only. We require a $100 non-refundable deposit to reserve each kid. We accept two buck reservations and two doeling reservations per doe and recommend including a first and second choice for your reservation. Reservations are placed based on the order deposits are received and a signed contract. You’ll be notified within 24 hours of your choice being born with an invoice to pay the remaining balance due. Confirmation of notice is required within 72 hours or your order will be canceled and all monies paid will be forfeited. Invoice must be paid in full and kid/s picked up by 14 days of age. If your choice kids are not available, you will receive the option of a full refund of your deposit and any other monies paid or a transfer to the next years reservations. Kids not picked up by 14 days of age will have a boarding fee charge of $30/week that must be paid in advance. Kids not picked up or shipped by 6 weeks without special signed arrangements made between Noblet Creek Farm LLC and the buyer will be relisted with all monies paid being forfeited.
Purchasing a Noblet Creek Bred Doe
Bred Does are occasionally available shortly before and during breeding season. Prices range from $450 to $850 depending on the breeding and will be listed on our Livestock For Sale page. There’s no guarantee of the does being bred beyond the standard protocol of a buck pen breeding the doe for 42 days. Confirmation of breeding is possible at buyer’s expense. There are two options for bred adult does.
Option 1: We’ve already exposed the doe to our buck of choice. These bred does must be picked up and paid in full within one week of completing breeding and/or agreement to purchase unless other arrangements are made with Noblet Creek Farm LLC in writing.
Option 2: The doe is bred to your buck of choice out of our live cover line-up for six weeks. Option 2 does must be paid in full before breeding will start. Once breeding commences no refunds will be guaranteed for any reason except death of the doe in the six weeks of breeding and one week time frame for pick up. Again, bred does must be picked up within one week of completed breeding unless other arrangements are made with Noblet Creek Farm LLC in writing.
Refunds for Option 2: Due to the nature of farm income refunds can take up to 190 days and are only given if the doe passes away in the six weeks she’s exposed to a buck and the one week designated for pick up. Refunds will be considered for option 1& 2 on a case by case basis if the doe resells for an equal or higher amount with a minimum $250 inconvenience fee.
