Oprah Winfrey is apparently getting into the organic food business, according to reports by the New York Post stemming from new online filings at the US Patent and Trademark Organization.

These filings reveal that several applications for “Oprah’s Organics” were filed last month.

“The trademarks were filed for Oprah’s farm on Maui to enable the farm to grow and distribute produce on Maui and throughout the Hawaiian islands,” the newspaper quoted a rep for Winfrey as saying.

The filings indicate the products could include bath soaps, sunscreen, massage oils, hair products and also for organic salad dressings and frozen vegetables, soups, beverages and snack dips.

Other filings made this fall have included applications for “Oprah’s Farm” for a beverage and catering service and “Oprah’s Harvest.”

Oprah Winfrey already owns hundreds of acres on Maui, including a large farm and a bed and breakfast.

    At least some of the land she is hoarding will go to a practical use, although for a profit, perhaps she will follow the example of the late Paul Newman and proceeds will go to charity, unlikely though since her bank account has went way down do to the floundering cash cow OWN…….

    be great to see her popularize a line of products from Maui that could be sold all over the world, also to employ Mauiians and put back into the Maui community and economy. Let us see.

So get yourselves ready its going to be a wild ride.

    I have been creating fantastic, all organic, all natural bath and beauty products for myself and friends for decades but I am terrible at marketing. How can I get in touch with Oprah’s people and present them for consideration?

      BTW, I live on Maui, been here almost 13 years.

    The Great Kamehameha I is close to his return and I mean close and I mean close within the next 30 days and all will be set right and the Hawaiian people will all return to thier birthrights and all will be provided as it is the will of the divine. He will be as he always was the Divine spiritual energies of both Kamehameha I and King Kalakaua the sentinals of God almighty! So get yourselves ready its going to be a wild ride.

    I love Oprah and watched the nightly re-run of her shows when I came home from work at night. Always positive and it’s sad that peoples who give negative comments here still don’t understand that you don’t achieve anything in life by being negative, jalous and resentful …Oprah wasn’t born rich, neither was our President and I am just grateful that I made it to Hawaii and would love to meet Oprah in person. She has helped kids in Africa, opened schools there and since I am already buying organic food in any way, I am very excited about her being involved in this. I wonder what the peoples who are leaving these negative comments here have done for others?
