Billionaire Bill Gates is not only a global advocate and financier of vaccination programs and other, mostly questionable medical-technical developments. In a quasi-secret manner, he also became the largest private farmland owner in the USA and buys up agricultural land on a large scale not only there, but worldwide. The background is unclear, there may be a connection with companies in which Gates is involved that produce synthetic food (according to the World Economic Forum the food of the future, along with insects ).
North Dakota wants to investigate purchases
But now the first US state is putting a stop to Gates ‘ insane land purchases, or at least trying to.
A company linked to the billionaire has reportedly acquired 2,100 acres of potato farmland in northern North Dakota, angering local residents. The state is investigating the purchase of potato acreage by the Gates-affiliated trust. The state attorney general wrote in a letter that the trust “is prohibited from owning or leasing any farmland or ranch land in the state of North Dakota.”
“In addition, the law places certain restrictions on trusts that may own farmland or ranch land,” the letter said. “Our agency needs to confirm how your company uses this land and whether that use satisfies any of the legal exceptions, such as B. the exception for business purposes so that we can close this case and add it to our inactive files,” the letter continued.
The New York Post originally reports that public filings recently cited by AgWeek show that a company linked to billionaire Bill Gates called the Red River Trust recently acquired 2,100 acres of potato acreage in northern North Dakota .
Citizens upset and angry
The land was purchased by the owners of Campbell Farms, a potato-growing corporation headquartered in Grafton, North Dakota, about 50 miles from the Canadian border. North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring told KFYR that public reaction to the purchase was negative.
“I’ve heard a lot from all parts of the state, not even this area,” Goehring said. “These people are upset, but there are others who are just angry about it.”
