Goats at Three Charm Farm
At Three Charm Farm, our goats are raised with a holistic approach to their health and happiness and as an integrated part of the whole farm and its micro-environment. We are members of the Mini Dairy Goat Association and collaborate and follow guidelines set by the NRCS (Natural Resources Conservation Service) regarding our environmental practices. As a licensed dairy, we regularly test for TB/Brucellosis. The state of Maine’s Department of Agriculture also tests our milk, cheese, and water on a regular basis.
bred and nurtured for health and happiness
During the grazing season ‘our girls’ are rotated through various pasture units and small wooded areas, given garden herbs & veggies, grains, kelp, minerals and high quality hay. We work to provide a peaceful, loving structure and schedule with daily affection to every individual. Our animals have access to shelter as well as the outdoors 24/7 except during severe weather, illness, birthing or at night when they are very young.

Goat Kids for Sale
We have started accepting reservations for spring lambs and kids. We had a VERY long wait list last year, so don’t delay if you want to buy an animal!
Reservations Required & Limited
Your name will be put on our reservation list in the order in which your deposit is received. Three Charm Farm reserves the right to retain any kid at any time prior to that kid leaving the farm. If you have made a reservation and paid us a non-refundable deposit, we WILL IMMEDIATELY refund the deposit if we decide to retain the kid you have reserved or if we cannot provide the specified goat you are hoping for.
If we do have what you indicate on the form, your deposit will be put toward your purchase but will be considered non-refundable. We will NOT refund your deposit if you change your mind, if you have a change in circumstance, etc.
2022 Kid Availability & Pricing
This spring, we are expecting approximately 30 goat kids. We are anticipating our primary kidding season will be April 15-May 15th, (kids will be available to go home 6-10 weeks after being born) with a 2nd smaller birthing group anticipated for early July.
We have several different breeds and breed crosses available. All males, (except purebred males that we believe will make good registered sires) will be castrated (wethered) and offered as pets/companion animals for $225.00. All non-registered/mixed breed female goat kids will be available for $300.00. All will be disbudded (no exceptions), receive a CDT vaccine (upon request at N/C) and be available for take home at 6-8 weeks (at weaning). We are happy to microchip any goat purchased from us for an additional $15.00. Please let us know prior to pick-up if this is something you would like us to do.
Registered stock price range $300.00 - $800.00 and we will have very few available this year. Please be very specific about what traits and characteristics you are looking for in your registered stock so that we can let you know if those options are available.
There are times and reasons why a goat kid may leave the farm prior to being weaned, thus making it a ‘bottle baby.’ These are considered and offered on a case-by-case basis. ALL females would be considered excellent breeding candidates (all bred to Registered Males) and come from high quality milking lines.
Purebred and/or registered Mini-Nubians kids will be available. Pricing will start at $300 per animal. All will be disbudded, received their CD&T, microchipped, and will have registration paperwork for you to submit to either MGDA and/or ADGA upon pickup.
We do not currently have our breeding schedule online, but we will confirm your preferences and provide pictures and information for the dams and sires that may produce the kids that you are looking to purchase. We can also schedule an appointment to do a facetime call or an in-person (Covid-safe) appointment.
We will vaccinate kids for CD&T upon request at no charge. All kids will be disbudded (unless they are born naturally polled), no exceptions. We do not guarantee that scurs will not develop, particularly on males.
Adult Does & Bucks
We may have adult does and bucks available for sale with/without kids in the spring. Please let us know if you’d like to be notified if any become available. All adult stock that are 1 year or older have been tested (negative) by our vet at least once for CAE, CL, and Johnes with results available upon request.
