We are glad you are interested in purchasing stock from us. A deposit of $100 will hold the breeding or kid of your choice. We STRONGLY recommend that prospective buyers make a first and second choice. All money is to be paid in full before kids are shipped or allowed to leave our farm. The buyer is also responsible for the cost of any health testing or health certificate (for out of state buyers) and a shipping crate. If the kid of your choice is not born or does not meet our standards of quality, your deposit may be returned, transferred to another choice, or retained for the next year. We reserve the right to retain any kid for herd replacement.
Air shipping is available out of the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport. There is an additional $50 fee to cover the cost of mileage/6 hour round trip drive time from our farm to the Twin Cities airport. The cost to air ship will typically total $400-$500 depending on flight availability, health testing and kennel. We prefer United PetSafe as they are the cheapest option and easiest to work with.
There are no refunds on cancelled orders. Once you are notified of the birth of your kid, we ask that you promptly make arrangements to come pick up or your kid or arrange transport. We prefer to raise kids until they are at 2-3 weeks old in order to evaluate the kid, disbud and ensure they are off to a good start. If a kid is asked to be held longer than 6 weeks of age, there may be an additional charge. Although we can sometimes geographically accommodate buyers along the I-90/94 corridor or deliver animals to shows we attend, we much prefer the pick up of animals to take place at our farm, especially during the busy spring and early summer.
Once again, thank you for your interest in Kara Kahl Farm!
