Couple wants to give away their goat farm to whoever writes the best essay

A couple in Elkmont, Alabama, is looking to give their $350,000 goat farm away to whoever writes them the best essay.

It's just like college — except at the end, you'll have a mortgage-free farm and 85 goats instead of crippling student debt.

Owners Leslie and Paul Spell decided to give their 20-acre farm away via an essay contest when they noticed that most interested potential buyers couldn't afford it.

"Not to say they won't have struggles or stuff to figure out, but they are going to start with a product that has a following," Leslie told local television station WAAY-TV.

The Spells are asking each entrant to pay a $150 submission fee, and said they hope to get 2,500 entries in all, which would total $375,000. This amount will be used to pay off the rest of their mortgage, while $20,000 will be given to the contest winners, according to the Spells.

What's more, the couple said they'll train anyone who isn't experienced in making goat cheese.

Those interested can submit an essay through the contest website.
