Norma Burns knows what it's like of being a farmer and not being able to afford land. Therefore, she is sponsoring an essay writing contest to qualified couples for a chance to win Bluebird Hill Farm worth $450k in value, along with a Certificate of Title, free and clear.

The couples will only have to write a 200-word essay about "Why We Want to Own and Operate Bluebird Hill Farm," fill out an entry form, resumes and pay a hefty entry fee of $300. Only couples are permitted to join the contest as "experience has shown that Bluebird Hill Farm cannot be operated successfully by a single individual."

Burns also wanted to ensure that at least one of them is around 25 to 50 years old to have the strength to carry on daily farm activities and is a citizen of the US. If there are plenty of farmers joining the contest despite the heavy entry fee, the winning couple will win $50,000 that can be used for transition expenses.

The house is already furnished with bustling rooms and attic to enjoy. The site advertises that the barn is over 200 years old, with an area for a lavender harvester, lavender distillery, chicken coops, greenhouse and a garden room.

It also seemed like the owner is leaving Barney, the barn cat that is "smart and effective at mouse and rat control." The owner only asks that the winning couple should take good care of her.

Bluebird Hill Farm is a 13-acre farm famous for its gardens and lavender fields. It has two ponds with one which is the primary focus of the farm, and the other is an underdeveloped to be installed accordingly by the next owner.

The deadline for the contest is on June 1 with the judging to commence on June 19. Entrants will be notified on who wins the essay contest.
