China has a big appetite, and lately it hasn’t been buying only food from U.S. farms, it’s also been buying those farms. One of the largest is in northeast Utah, where a pair of Chinese businessman have purchased a 22,000-acre alfalfa ranch, where hay is grown for export to China’s booming dairy industry. Life on the ranch has changed little since the Chinese bought it, except that the camp dinner might include stir-fried elk meat. It’s the latest sign of how China’s globalization is reaching every corner of the globe, and not without resistance.
