PSA: Little Hill Farms is a 4-H run company. We pride ourselves in the care of our animals and care about each and ever animal who is brought onto our property. We will not be selling to anyone who has not done the research or does not have proper housing set up for these animals. Animals aren't like Toilet paper, You can't just put them in the garage for later when things go back to normal. So I implore you to do your research and be sure this is what you want. I don't ask much but I do ask that the animal who leave my farm have a humane living situation and (if its their purpose) a humane dispatch.
Our most important rule is that you take the time to do your research on the care of the animals you are purchasing and thus bringing into your care. We love teaching new people about the animals we have or had in the past, so feel free to ask, we would rather you ask a stupid question then not and make a mistake at the expense of your animal's welfare. Even if you are buying the animal with the the intention of eating them. The animals still require proper care while they are with you and a humane dispatch.
We require that any specific animal you desire to purchase who is not picked up within 48 hours of choosing, be payed for with a nonrefundable deposit and be picked up with in the agreed upon time limit or you forfeit your deposit and the animal will go back up for sale. If you choose not to place a deposit animals will be sold on a first come first serve basis.
Deposit costs by species are as follows:
Rabbits - $45
Goats - $100
Pigs - Free to all show families, those looking for a butcher animal must choose their individual after show families have chosen theirs.
We also offer "boarding" for your animals before pick up, (animals who have left can't come back and be boarded) this is when you purchase an animal but can't pick it up within a week of your deposit being placed. We charge a flat rate per week to keep your deposit on the animal (even if you are only a day or 2 late on pick you must still pay for the week its a reasonable price for you but feed costs add up for us when we are feeding a bunch of reserved animals)
Boarding costs by species are as follows:
Pigs - 15/week
Goats - $5/week (winter) $2/week (summer)
Rabbits - $2/week
All payments must be paid in cash, through PayPal Friends and Family, or a check that has cleared the bank before the animal(s) can leave the property
If for any reason you do not want your Rabbit(s), Pig(s), or Goat(s) at any time in there life you can bring them back and we will take them. We do not charge you for this nor will you receive a refund but you do have to transport it back to the farm. Just contact us and set a time for drop-off. If within 72 hours your Rabbit(s), Pig(s), or Goat(s) show signs of illness or injury we will either take the animal back and you will receive a full refund, pay for the vet (up to the original sale price) that is up to you. If your animal perished of something the either we feel or a vet confirm was our fault we will give you a full refund and (if available and desired) a replacement animal. We pride ourselves in the health and welfare of our animals and hurt just as much as you when the worst happens to one of our animals.
The difference between a breeder and a multiplier is that one breeds for specific traits that improve their animals whether that be to make a better animal through their own or show standards. While the other just keeps making more babies with no care for improving what they have. We choose to be breeders.
