Former Schroon Lakers June and John Strothenke, traded their life in the Adirondacks for Alaska, about a decade ago.
They settled on a piece of land, tyhe Top of the Hill Farm near Fairbanks, where they eventually became self-sufficient, raising goats, rabbits, chickens and cows. But now, it's time for a BIG change.
The couple plan to return to our area, but not before giving away their farm in Interior Alaska. That’s right: giving their farm away in an essay-writing contest.
There will be no real estate agent: just your essay and a $1,000 entry fee. Write the winner, and the farm is yours. For more details, check out the story from the Alaska Dispatch News, by clicking here.
