Bill Gates added 2100 acres of North Dakotan farmland to his portfolio despite Depression-era law forbidding farmland investment
· Jul 8, 2022 ·

Bill Gates skirted a North Dakota law disallowing corporations and limited liability companies from purchasing farmland in the state by using the Red River Trust to buy the land as a proxy.

Republican Attorney General Drew Wrigley issued a letter saying that the land sale complied with the old law, as long as he uses a trust to buy it and leases the land back to farmers.

Bill Gates is the largest private farmland owner in the nation with over 269,000 acres across 20 states, rapidly approaching 1 percent of all farmland in the country.

Many have questioned Gates's reason for amassing farmland.

Of course, it shouldn't be that surprising considering Gate's push toward synthetic meat and getting rid of animal consumption.

He's invested in Impossible Foods, Beyond Meat, and Nature's Fynd among others, so it only makes sense to also own the source of the crops for these companies.

He has said,

I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they're going to make it taste even better over time. Eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the [behavior of] people or use regulation to totally shift the demand.

And as the left jumps on his climate-change bandwagon and starts calling for the end of meat via regulation, Gates has placed his bets that his agenda is going to win out.

All I can say is, Americans once took on the greatest power on Earth over a cup of tea, don't think we won't throw down for a steak.
