Write an Essay, Win a Goat Farm
Leslie and Paul Spell of Elkmont, Alabama have launched an essay contest. The reward? Their $350,000 goat farm, reports Mashable.
The Spells made the decision to reward the best essay with the 20-acre farm after they discovered many interested buyers couldn’t afford the original price tag. The winner’s package includes the mortgage-free home, 85 goats, and a lesson in making goat cheese for any inexperienced parties.
With a $150 entry fee, the Spells are banking on at least 2,500 entries—enough to pay off the remainder of their mortgage and gift the contest winners with an extra $20,000. Participants should pen a 200-word essay about why he or she would be an ideal owner for continuing the “farmstead goat cheese tradition.”
