Couple to give away their $350,000 Alabama goat cheese farm to the person who writes best essay about why they should run it (and pet dog gets thrown in too)
Paul and Leslie Spell, who run Humble Heart Farms in Elkmont, want to move to Costa Rica to help set up goat farms. They were inspired by a woman in Maine who is giving away her inn through an essay-writing contest. Applicants should write 200 words about why they want to take over. It will cost $150 to enter and the couple hopes the fees will cover the rest of their mortgage and give the new owners $20,000 to get started.
The prize includes the 20-acre farm, their 3-bedroom home, more than 50 goats, their guard dog, equipment and the farm's recipes. They will teach the winner how to make the cheese and operate the farm.
