Matt Roloff sells Honey with a tag on it that says "Roloff Farms Honey." There is a label on it that says that much but it comes in a junky old bear shaped plastic bottle. I have never seen a mention of honey, bees or beehives on his show and I've seen them all. I got on the forum on his website to asked what was so 'Roloff' about the honey and I logged back in tonight to see what was said in response. I found I was banned, forever, for no reason. Well I'll tell you what the reason more than likely is: Matt Roloff gets the honey from somewhere else, puts his label and pricetag on it and makes out like a bandit. I don't know that this is true, but it all makes sense since no one could point me to any of their honey operations and instead tried to silence me.
He sells this stuff right next to the "Roloff Farms Dirt." That crap comes in a 'Mason Type Jar' of undeterminable size. It's probably a pint (or less), maybe a quart. And it's CLODS, not even a nice consistency to do anything with. Wonder if the Oregon Department of Agriculture allows the sale of dirt without labeling the weight or volume, the interstate export of it, or how much they care about the misrepresentation of the origin of honey. No telling where that stuff comes from if they won't answer questions about it.
Guess I might get some answers about this at some point.
But after I had to research Roloff in regards to the honey, I found that stuff about Jeremy and his gay bashing and use of the N-Word and how it all came out of his myspace blogs over the summer and I was shocked. I don't know why he thinks that would be tolerated when none of the Roloffs would tolerate anyone calling any of the family members a midget. It certainly made me think twice about even watching the show, let alone buying anything from them or supporting them in any way.
This family is really taking everybody to the cleaners. It makes me ill to watch their sick indulgences and I can no longer do it, especially after being such two-faced shysters. It would serve them right to lose all the TV contracts and not be able to finish their projects. How many decks can someone build on a house in fours years time anyhow?

Seriously!!

AUTHOR: Ron - (United States of America)

This practice of reselling is common...especially with farmed products such as vegetables and honey. It's apparent from your rambling from one subject to another that your gripe is much stickier than the honey. As far as "where this stuff really comes from"...my guess would be HONEY BEES!!

Egg on your face (or honey) or Matt's cover up?

AUTHOR: Tammy - (United States of America)

Just watched an episode of Little People, Big World. Matt Roloff now has bee hives on his farm. I don't know how recent this was filmed. But if it was old footage just now being shown, the honey in the jar is straight from the hive. That's what honey looks like when it is not pasteurized.

It's also possible that he is now getting hives to cover up selling honey that wasn't really from his farm.

I don't know.

As for what Matt and Amy do with their money, like building decks, whose business is that? And why wish them evil? Jealousy and covetousness are ugly things.

What about the syringes?

AUTHOR: John - (U.S.A.)

http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m3289/is_n3_v163/ai_15312359

Why was Pepsi worried about the syringes that possibly could've been put in their product during manufacturing? Wasn't it the 'independent' bottlers that would've been responsible for that?

"Once Pepsi officials were assured that the tamperings couldn't have occurred in their plants or in the bottling system, the crisis team focused on dealing with the media assaults."

Right there, ownership of these bottling plants is implied to belong to Pepsi.

All your Pepsi is bottled by Pepsi employees.

Also, Kroger manufactures decorated cakes, pudding cakes, garlic spreads, icings, pastries, deli salads, bread, rolls, milk, cream, canned goods, and on and on and on. They own factories throughout the country. People who work there wear uniforms that have Kroger emblems on them. They belong to the Kroger company. I wouldn't put it past Wal-mart, CVS, Walgreens, Food Lion, etc to also own factories to manufacture their name brand product.


So anyhow, how does it help Roloff's case if he's just getting Sue Bee honey and slapping his label on it? That old Roloff's going to blow all his money and wind up trying to live a life he won't be able to support once he loses his show and he'll have to move back to Rochester, Robert.

Bryce is annoying

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

The honey is in the exact same battle as "Sue Bee". Same bottle, same lid. Guess what brand it is Bryce?

All anyone has to do is look at the different brands on the shelf at any grocery store to solve this mystery. I did it online in less than 30 seconds. I also have a bottle of it in my pantry.

Case closed Agent Smithers...lets go get a donut!

As for the name of the business, most states require you to register your business with a "fictitious name" if you are not listing it under your own. Matt and his wife call theirs Roloff Farms instead of Matt Roloff Farms. It does not matter what you call your business. If the name of the business is not your legal name, then it is a fictitious name.

Sticky is correct. Do you really think WalMart manufactures the stuff they sell in their own private label brand? What about CVS, Walgreens, Food Lion, etc? That all came from some other company, and put it in the private label packaging. As for Quaker Oats Robby, you pretty much proved Sticky's point on that with your explanation. The Quakers have nothing at all to do with the product. The original owner of the company used a fictitious name and a fictitious character to sell the product. The same with Uncle Ben. And no, we never called old black men Uncle. My entire family is from the deep south. I did have an old black woman for a "Granny" though, when I was a baby. Does that count? Wendy's was named for Dave Thomas' daughter. She had NOTHING to do with the business. The Charlotte Motor Speedway isn't in Charlotte NC. It's just a name.

Personally, I think Bryce is just mad that these two fine people have made a great business for themselves, while he sits on his mother's couch all day. Either that, or he just hates Little People.

As for the bottles of dirt...funny stuff. You know people are buying it. If they weren't, the Farm wouldn't be selling it.

#7 Consumer Comment

Thank you!

AUTHOR: Sticky - (U.S.A.)

Ok then, how about a simple response for some clearly simple people. First of all Robby, you proved my point. You see, my sarcastic remarks about the names of those companies meant that there was more to the product than just the name. If you would had continued in the same fashion, you would have gone into the history of the name Roloff Farms & explained they do not manufacture honey on a farm. Roloff Farms Honey is not made on Roloff Farms In just the same way that you explained that Mars bars don't come from Mars & Quakers don't make Quaker oats. You elaborated on my explanation & supported it, then you said I was an idiot because I was right. Somehow though, you failed miserably on your Pepsi explanation. Yes, I see Pepsi employees delivering Pepsi to the store. You should take a look at the can. What does it say? Bottled by an independent bottler? What does that mean? Is that Pepsi or someone else, using the Pepsi recipe under license? Your statement Yes, a Pepsi Can is filled by a Pepsi Employee is NOT true! & I am not weird like you. I say 1000 miles & you go find a map & plot out factories totally missing the point. You were so uptight about making me look bad, that you never stopped to think twice about what you were saying, & you ended up proving my point in the process. & Brice get over the fact that Roloff Farms is not telling you where they get their honey. Don't you know what a trade secret is? Call any small business & demand to know the supplier of their products. If they don't tell you to f* off, they will at least treat you the same way as the Roloff employees treat you. People like you are so annoying.

I called the Ag dept in Oregon and the result is...

AUTHOR: Bryce - (U.S.A.)

I called the Department of Agriculture in Oregon and the very helpful lady on the phone could not find any results in the system for her search for 1) Roloff Farms, or 2) The Farm's Address, 23985 NW Grossen Dr., Hillsboro, OR. She also had never even heard of the Roloffs (lucky lady) after I mentioned she may have seen these people on her TV. I don't know much about the inner workings at the Dept of Ag, but I would guess, if it works there like it works anywhere else, no results in your system would mean Roloff has never registered any sort of thing with the Department, and is either snubbing the time-tested and well established standards and laws of the State of Oregon, or is producing no honey on his farm.
So there you have it, don't buy this product.
Further posts will be made as I learn more from the Ag Dept.

Guess What

AUTHOR: Bryce - (U.S.A.)

I don't even think this honey is made, packed or produced in Oregon.

According to Oregon Department of Agriculture's statute 603-051-0395,

(1) Each container shall be marked in a legible manner with the grade, net weight, and the name and address of the producer, shipper, or packer as the case may be. If the container is opaque the color of the honey shall also be marked on said container. The foregoing grades for extracted honey shall become effective February 15, 1944.

Where is name and address of the producer, shipper, or packer? Not only is Roloff trying to deceive the public, he couldn't even use an Oregon product because he would have to reveal the origin of the honey! Shyster! I call shenanigans!

Sticky, there are some problems with your statements

AUTHOR: Robby - (U.S.A.)

I watch the show and if Matt Roloff was selling honey I would think it was produced on his farm. But like Bryce pointed out, I've never seen any honey on the show. Yes, a Pepsi Can is filled by a Pepsi Employee. They are also delivered by a Pepsi Employee. Haven't you ever been at the store and seen the Pepsi truck drive up and the Pepsi Employee in their Pepsi Uniform?
AND, for your quip about "unless you are within 1000 miles from one of a couple Coke & Pepsi bottlers, then you're Cokes & Pepsis are probably bottled locally too."
Guess what, sticky palms, A thousand miles from Atlanta reaches to Maine, Nebraska, Florida Texas, etc. Throw one more bottler in out in San Francisco and they're within a thousand miles of the rest of the Country. Does that mean that just a couple of counties out on the Great Plains are serviced by local independents for Coke and Pepsi? You're an Idiot, sticky.
Of course we're not getting all of our coke and pepsi from up to a thousand miles away, there's a bottler in probably every state, and yes they are ran by the company in question. But it IS still coke or pepsi.
Roloff Farms is not a brand name you find in the supermarket, it is a place in Oregon ran by little people. They sell pumpkins, peaches and dirt. All of what they sell is not sold on the quality of the product, it is sold by the novelty of their name. When Matt Roloff sells honey and puts his name on it, I would expect it to be produced on his farm, otherwise it is not worth the three extra bucks more instead of any other honey.
There is a sign at the entrance to their property, it is the same as what the honey on his website has on the label. If they're not making it there, where is the 'Roloff Farms' where it is produced?
You idiot, don't you know Birdseye Brand Frozen foods was founded by Clarence Birdseye?
As for Quaker Oats: "The name was chosen when Quaker Mill partner Henry Seymour found an encyclopedia article on Quakers and decided that the qualities described integrity, honesty, purity provided an appropriate identity for his company's oat product." Today you don't come across a lot of impure, dishonest oats, but consumers in the late nineteenth century couldn't take such things for granted. To emphasize the purity angle, the original Quaker Man carried a scroll with the word "pure" on it.
As for Uncle Ben: In the American South, whites once commonly referred to elderly black men as uncle even though they were not blood relatives. Moreover, during the 1940s, black people were popularly associated with rice. In the later 1800s, African-Americans were often featured as company mascots for agricultural and other products in the United States. According to Mars, Uncle Ben was an African-American rice grower in Texas known for the quality of his rice. Gordon L. Harwell, an entrepreneur who had supplied rice to the armed forces in World War II, chose the name Uncle Ben's as a means to expand his marketing efforts to the general public.
And onto Mars Bars: named after Forrest Mars, who started the corporation.
And for Jimmy Dean: Ol' Jimmy founded the company, and was involved in running it. As for the Real Brand Cheese and Good Fella Pizza, I'm more discriminating than you, evidently, and only buy real cheese, usually imported, and of those imports, they are usually produced in an area no larger than one county. I sure as hell ain't gonna eat no stinkin' pizza with cheese of undeterminable origin.
Now, stinky, now that you've been educated,' how would explain the naming of Roloff Farms' Honey? What can that name be attributed to? Nearly every other product you come up with can be explained, so what about the Roloffs?

#13 Consumer Suggestion

Ignorance with a side of Beans & Bryce

AUTHOR: Sticky - (U.S.A.)

First of all, you were not ripped off AT ALL. This argument that you were deceived is ridiculous! You are some how saying that because the company named Roloff Farms you were deceived because you were lead to believe that it came from their farm? I can't believe that I actually have to explain this to you, but clearly you are not very bright so here goes. Companies can have whatever name they want. A company can have a name of a person, place or thing. Although companies sometimes have a name names that easily explain what the company sells, sometimes, the names are simply chosen because of the special meaning they have to the founder(s). With that being said, for every company that manufactures a product (a manufacturer) and sells it wholesale, there are 100's of companies that sell those items (distributors) at retail. When you browse the products in a grocery store, you will find very few products were actually manufactured by the company name on the label. Guess what? They don't have to be! Take the soft drink aisle. You've got Coke, Pepsi, and off brand soft drinks. Now, off brands are usually made by local, independent bottlers & unless you are within 1000 miles from one of a couple Coke & Pepsi bottlers, then you're Cokes & Pepsis are probably bottled locally too. That means, potentially, every soft drink in 1 aisle could be made by 1 company & labeled Coke, Pepsi, Sprite, Dr Pepper, Fanta, Diet Rite, etc, etc. By your rationale, isn't that deceiving too? Do you think a Pepsi employee should fill Pepsi cans? Now, if you feel like that's a little different than what you are saying, then try this. Walk around your grocery store & find all of the brand names that have Farm(s) in them. If they are big brands, they won't be from a farm. Different brands of organic milk that vary widely in cost, sit next to each other & are bottled by the SAME factory. One says XX Farms, but on the back, it says where it is bottled it's not a farm. Deceiving? Hardly! Are Quaker oats made by Quakers? Does some ones uncle named Ben actually harvest Uncle Bens rice? Are Mars candy bars from mars? How many red bulls does it take to make a Red Bull? Are there actual birds eyes in Birds Eye frozen vegetables? Why doesn't Jimmy Dean make his own sausage? How come Real Brand cheese isn't real cheese? Are Good Fellas pizzas made by Henry Hill? And on and on. Get my point? Now, the reason you can't go to Sam's Club & get brown eggs then market them as Farm Fresh, is because you didn't get them fresh from a farm. However, if you had a factory named Bryce Farms you might be able to trick people into thinking they were actually from a farm that is if your customers were not educated, like you. Lastly, I know why they won't respond to you. Because you are pushing your opinion on people like it is a fact. You sound SO ignorant. My advise: get an education & realize how you sound. Learn what brand names are, and how they can legally differ from what the company does or sells. Stop acting like you just uncovered some big cover up. You make yourself seem like some kid that has no idea how the world works with you it's not even cute though.

You wouldn't go for it if I...

AUTHOR: Bryce - (U.S.A.)

I guess I can go to Sam's Club or another bulk food store and buy brown eggs by the gross...and then put a sign in my front yard that I have farm fresh eggs for sale, and lead everyone to believe the egss I'm charging an arm and a leg for are local and produced right here. No one would go for that, so why should Roloff charge extra for the novelty of having his farm's name on the honey if it didn't really come from there? He sells a pint or so of dirt clods right next to it, and claims that came from the farm. Are you really going to want a pint (it looks like a pint, he doesn't even label the volume or weight on the site) of dirt from 'Roloff Farm' for $8 if was really just something packaged in China? It is all about the name and what it implies. But, I really could've understood if they had just been polite, allowed the question to be answered/discussed and not banned me for life for daring to question them. Hell, I wouldn't have bothered to have told anyone if they had admitted they didn't produce the honey on their farm.

The point of this...

AUTHOR: Bryce - (U.S.A.)

The point is that you should not buy this honey thinking it came from the Roloff Farm Empire, that's what they want you to do, get it, put it on the tea table when your friends come over and have them be impressed by it. If they would've just answered my question about having honey on their farm, I wouldn't be here. But they were rude and banned me from the forums forever, without giving a reason. I guess Matt has a Napoleon Complex. Reminds me of Josef Stalin exiling someone who dared to question the empire.
I don't care if some store puts their name on a product...that doesn't lead me to believe anything about it's origin. But when Roloff calls his honey "Roloff Farms Honey" that's totally deceptive, an absolute claim that that honey was produced on his farm. And when asked about it, they try to silence me.
Hopefully someone who would've bought the honey and never thought anything about there being no beehives on their farm, will now choose not to.

Nothing wrong with this practice

AUTHOR: Daniel - (U.S.A.)

Hi there, there's nothing legally wrong with this practice. Ever go to your local grocer and see the store logo on a generic product? They didn't manufacture that product, it's someone elses product with that stores name on it. Why go to all this trouble about honey, if your interested in buying his honey or have bought his honey perhaps you can do the research ahead of time. If they are refusing to answer you then don't buy the honey!!!!

I don't think they are legally required to tell you where it comes from anymore then a grocer would have to tell you which cows the groundmeat came from. I can understand your upset because a Pennsylvania auto dealership sells cars with a jar of "home made" jam from it's deceased mothers recipe. What they don't tell you is it's mass-produced in a factory and from what i've been reading never really did have anything with a dead mother. It's all marketing hype, buyer-beware!

Hi there, there's nothing legally wrong with this practice. Ever go to your local grocer and see the store logo on a generic product? They didn't manufacture that product, it's someone elses product with that stores name on it. Why go to all this trouble about honey, if your interested in buying his honey or have bought his honey perhaps you can do the research ahead of time. If they are refusing to answer you then don't buy the honey!!!!

I don't think they are legally required to tell you where it comes from anymore then a grocer would have to tell you which cows the groundmeat came from. I can understand your upset because a Pennsylvania auto dealership sells cars with a jar of "home made" jam from it's deceased mothers recipe. What they don't tell you is it's mass-produced in a factory and from what i've been reading never really did have anything with a dead mother. It's all marketing hype, buyer-beware!
