Austrian-born Canadian businessman Frank Stronach's name is not on the 18,000 acres of land that changed hands two weeks ago, but it may as well be.

He has talked about plans to raise organic beef on "huge areas" in Florida.
"I’m planning to buy 20,000 hectares of woods in (the U.S. state of) Florida. The climate is excellent there," he told the Austria Times in March 2010.
