“I’ve gotten a big earful on this from clear across the state, it’s not even from that neighborhood,” said Agricultural Commissioner Doug Goehring. “Those people are upset, but there are others that are just livid about this.”

Under North Dakota law, there are “certain limitations on the ability of trusts to own farmland or ranchland. The Corporate or Limited Liability Company Farming Law has certain exceptions, such as permitting registered family farms or allowing the use of the land for business purposes,” said the letter.

It continued, “Our office needs to confirm how your company uses this land and whether this use meets any of the statutory exceptions, such as the business purpose exception, so that we may close this case and file it in our inactive files.”

Those who violate this law have to surrender the land within a year. They are also getting a $100K fine.

Daily Mail reported that Gates is the single largest owner in farmland in the US. He signs as the owner of 242,000 acres in 18 states.

An investment entity owned by Cascade Investments (Gates) owns most of the investments, including 69,071 acres in Louisiana, 47,927 acres in Arkansas, 25,750 acres in Arizona, 20,588 acres in Nebraska and 16,097 in Washington state.

Cascade didn’t say much about the purchase. They just said it is “very supportive of sustainable farming.”
