Just when you thought Oprah has done everything in the books, she comes up with something new, an organic produce line!
Oprah owns 1,000 acres of land on the island of Maui and she plans to turn sixteen acres into farmland. She told her magazine (O, the Oprah Magazine),
“We realized if we could grow delicious food ourselves, we could share it. I grew up with a grandmother who was always growing things—everything that we ate came from our own little one acre, and to be able to have a full circle moment like this, not in Mississippi but in Maui, is fantastic.”
As of now, she donates 145 pounds a week on one acre to charities and restaurants, but that will soon change. She currently has the natural resource management group Bio-Logical Capital overseeing the farmland. Her produce line will include 100 different types of vegetables, fruits, and herbs. Once the sixteen acres of farmland are complete, she plans on selling the produce around the country!
