Over after 10 years, the operation is at the stature of its prosperity. The Spell’s offer their goat cheddar at six to seven farmer’s businesses a week. Their items are likewise utilized by region eateries.
Yet, when some evangelist companions in Costa Rica needed to begin their own particular goat farm, Paul Spell says he felt prompted help.

Through the challenge, the Spell’s say they’ll have the capacity to guarantee the following proprietor is somebody who will really tend to the area and the creatures.
On the off chance that all goes well, a champ will be chosen October 15.
The Spell’s have guaranteed to spend a month or thereabouts demonstrating the new proprietors the ropes of goat farming before leaving to help set up their companions’ operation in Costa Rica.
Subsequently, they plan to resign to Elkmont, a territory they’ve developed to love and one they accept the new proprietors will love, too.
