Bill Gates Is Now America’s Biggest Owner Of Farmland


This is a little scary once you think about it.

Bill Gates is now the largest owner of farmland in the United States with over 210,000 acres.

His farmland portfolio extends across 18 states and has many people wondering why he has purchased all this land?

More than likely he will continue to do research on genetically modifying crops and continue to push vaccines that genetically modify animals for the “better good”.

Forbes got the full scoop:

Bill Gates, the fourth richest person in the world and a self-described nerd who is known for his early programming skills rather than his love of the outdoors, has been quietly snatching up 242,000 acres of farmland across the U.S. — enough to make him the top private farmland owner in America.

After years of reports that he was purchasing agricultural land in places like Florida and Washington, The Land Report revealed that Gates, who has a net worth of nearly $121 billion according to Forbes, has built up a massive farmland portfolio spanning 18 states. His largest holdings are in Louisiana (69,071 acres), Arkansas (47,927 acres) and Nebraska (20,588 acres). Additionally, he has a stake in 25,750 acres of transitional land on the west side of Phoenix, Arizona, which is being developed as a new suburb.

Will this be a new trend that the elites will buy up everything and leave the middle and lower class with nothing?

Seems like it.

Fox Business chipped in too:

Microsoft founder Bill Gates is now the owner of the most farmland in the United States, according to Land Report.

The Land Report researchers concluded that Gates, now the fourth richest man in the world, and his wife, Melinda, own 242,000 acres of farmland.

They own roughly 52,000 more acreages than the Offutt family, who sit at No. 2 on Land Report’s list of families who own the most farmland in the U.S.

Woody Guthrie’s old song “this land is your land and this land is my land” will be soon be changed to “this land is the technocrats land and we rely on them for our food” if this kind of trend continues.
