This $450,000-Worth North Carolina Farm Can Be Yours If You Win An Essay Contest





Have you always dreamed of having your own farm? Your dream might soon come true in North Carolina, where a $450,000-worth farm is being offered to anyone who deserves it. And the catch? You need to win a 200-word essay contest!

It may sound too good to be true but that’s really how owner Norma Burns plans to give away Bluebird Hill Farm in Bennet. Burns has been looking after the farm for the last 18 years but now wants someone else to take on the responsibility.

Architect-turned-farmer Burns considers the organic farm her “everything.” However, there’s already too much work needed to keep the place in good shape and she can no longer keep up. She decided to move back to the city but not until she is certain that someone else – someone who knows what he or she is doing – will take care of her beloved farm.

This $450,000-worth organic farm in Bennet, North Carolina will be given to the winner of a 200-word essay contest.

The organic farm has been appraised to be worth about $450,000 but instead of offering the property for sale, Burns decided to give it away to a couple who can bring the best explanation through a 200-word essay as to why they deserve to be the new farm caretakers.

If you’re interested, it’s your chance to grab the opportunity. Applicants need to submit their pieces by June 1, 2017 and pay $300 to join the contest.

Burns said she is in need of a couple who has enough training and experiencing in tending organic farms. She knows that there are people out there who share the same passion as hers but the only thing standing in their way is the fact that they don’t have farms. But now, she is offering farmers a way to get started.

Burns likewise stresses that the farm should be handled by a couple since the place can’t be run by only one person. She will pick the 20 best literary pieces and these will go through a panel of judges that will make the final decision.

If you think you have what it takes, you can head over to the Bluebird Hill Farm website and sign up.
