Bill Gates is very rich and he owns a lot of farmland across the United States.

FoxNews recently did a report on the amount of land the billionaire owns and I was shocked to see how much farmland he owns in Louisiana.

Gates reportedly owns land in 19 states, with the most from right here in Louisiana.

According to the report on FoxNews, Bill Gates owns close to 70,000 acres of land in Louisiana.

I looked into this, and the Louisiana Farm Bureau reports the same, which you can see HERE. 

So, what is Gate's ultimate plan here? Why does he own so much land across our great country?

Conspiracy Theorists say it's an attempt at a takeover or control, but who really knows?


The state of Arkansas comes in second, behind Louisiana, when it comes to the number of acres Bill Gates owns. He owns 47.927 acres to the north of us.

Here's a recent report on Gates' investment in land.


LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
