Red River Trust, an entity tied to Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, secured legal approval to purchase thousands of acres of land in North Dakota.
The trust purchased 2,100 acres of Campbell Farms’ farmland, which spans two counties, for about $13.5 million – roughly $6,400 per acre – despite backlash from the community, according to multiple reports.
Gates is considered the largest private owner of farmland in the country with some 269,000 acres across dozens of states, according to last year’s edition of the Land Report 100, an annual survey of the nation’s largest landowners. He owns less than 1% of the nation’s total farmland. [Fox Business 7/10/22]
1 percent is a lot when you consider the millions of people affected. All of them eat. It wouldn’t be a concern if Gates were a rational businessman who values farming, innovation and profit. But we already know he’s a twisted sociopath who supports social engineering on a spectacular scale, including his proclamations about population control and coercive vaccinations (and support for these measures). He’s our very own Chinese Communist Party premier, and he has the money to buy up American farmland.
