What to bring with you when picking up purchased animals from our farm.

  1. When picking up animals from our farm, please have the proper size cage or trailer, preferably one with breathable holes or bars to contain the animals.  We will not release the animals to you without the proper safety cage or trailer.
  2. Also, bring a water and feeding bowl for the animals, in case you have a long way to go.
  3. Be aware that the animals may be scared at first.  We would recommend bringing a light sheet to cover the top half of the cage during travel. This often keeps them calm during travel.
  4. Bring exact change for your animal purchase. We do not keep change on hand.
