Before it’s too late…

The question of foreign ownership of agricultural land has been simmering just below the surface for some years now. The US is fortunate that it has the resources to feed its population for the foreseeable future.

But some countries already are being forced to plan against starvation and increasingly are buying farmland here. The Saudis are feeding their dairy herds hay grown on land they own in Texas…and their farms are drawing water from California’s limited supply.

It’s estimated that foreign interests already own an area the size of Ohio…and that’s a figure two years out of date! The current controversies over borders and tariffs could well become insignificant compared to this question of survival.
