**Well, the best day of your life has arrived.** That’s right: For a mere $150 and a 200-word statement of purpose, **you can get your hands on an entire goat farm in Alabama.** Talk about living the dream.
Okay, so maybe it’s not exactly your dream, but at this level of investment, it doesn’t hurt to try. The farm is being put up for grabs by Leslie and Paul Spell, who are moving to Costa Rica to assist missionaries in starting their own goat farms. Before they leave, they need someone to take over their 20-acre property in Alabama – including their 85 goats. So, they decided to have interested parties put together a 200 word paragraph about why they should get the goat farm. Each entry costs $150. If they get their expected 2,500 entries, and the total they earn will not only cover the rest of the mortgage, but also provide the winner with $20,000 to help cover startup costs.
