Knott's Berry Farm

Wednesday, October 29, 2003 11:26 AM
Is there any connection between Knott's Berry Farm the amusement park, and the actual Knott's Berry Farm which grows fruits besides the name? I seem to remember that Cedar Fair purchased KBF the park, but didn't buy the food producing company, however I don't think this is right.

I ask this because on the new Banquet Dessert Bakes, it says that the fruit provided in the box comes from Knott's Berry Farm.

Same family aspects at one time. Cedar Fair has nothing to do with the food company. They do carry the retail products in the shops. I even buy the stuff from time to time when shopping.

There is a number of farms that grow to Knott's specs. They are packaged in central facilities and distributed. If anyone knows of a farm, pipe up. This guy wants to know.

Walter Knott did invent the boysenberry on a side note. Woo-Hoo.

I'm sure she did. ;) Before she came along, people ate the stuff raw...that's why they only lived to be 35.

Sadly, that was the only good thing to come of her secret love affair with Colonel Sanders.

Yes, and it is rumored that a very jealous Walter caught them together one evening and tried, unsucessfully, to kill them. He felt so bad afterward, he built an amusement park.

Walter was a thigh man himself, so she stayed in business.

I get to send a thread back on topic, what do I win?

ConAgra foods seems to be the current owner of the "foods division" of Knott's, or at least they were as of the last Broward County Fair (last Thanksgiving).

I have too much time today. Staying out of the way of contractors in my house... Anyway, Conagra website lists Knotts as a brand, and has a bit of the story as well.

A bottle of No-Doz, so you can stay awake on coaster trips!

If I remember correctly, the restraunts at the one of Disneyland's hotels uses or used Knott's jams.

Ironic indeed. ;)

actually that is a common misconception...Walter Knott simply PERFECTED the boysenberry...he did not invent it...
