I'm excited about this post. I've just read about a woman who is giving away her farm in North Carolina in a contest. She has asked entrants to write an essay saying why they should win.
There are a few caveats, though. The people need to be between 25-50 (as we know farming can be tiring). Also, at least one person needs to be an American citizen. The farm is BlueBird Hill Farm.
There is an entrance fee of $300, which will be returned to entrants if the base price isn't met. This will be a wonderful opportunity for people who are farmers but haven't the funds to buy one themselves. She is looking for a couple who are passionate not just about farming but about the way of life.
This is an organic farm with certification, located in North Carolina and has an estimated value of $450,000.
Do you have what it takes to be the new owner of this beautiful farm? If so, this prize could change your life. If sufficient funds are obtained, there could be an extra $50,000 for the winner to go towards costs associated with the transfer.
Closing date: June 1, 2017
Eligibility: One member must be a US citizen. Ages between 25-50
This is an essay contest
Prize: You will win the BlueBird Hill Farm in North Carolina
