Little People, Big World's Roloff Farms slammed as 'overpriced' while some fans 'love' pumpkin season on property

LITTLE People, Big World’s Roloff Farms has been slammed as “overpriced,” while some fans loved pumpkin season on the famous property. 

Matt Roloff’s Roloff Farms kicked off pumpkin season this weekend with a series of fall attractions including wagon tours, a spooky forest, pumpkin patches, train rides, photo set-ups and more.


But opening weekend was met with a series of mixed reviews. 

One unhappy customer wrote on Yelp Saturday: “My husband worked a couple of miles away and had wanted to go for a couple of years. We finally made it up to the farm. What a huge disappointment. It cost us $101.95 for 3 adults and a 6-year-old to get in. 

"Not really clear what we paid for. It was a short walk around the property, not much to see. For the most part the staff was very friendly. The food was extremely over priced. As were the pumpkins. On our way home we came across a different pumpkins patch that didn't cost to walk around and was much nicer.”

Another wrote on Monday: “I'm just curious why I have to pay $24 For a four-year-old..?”

A third wrote on October 5: “Visited a few times over the years and always enjoyed myself, but now I see it’s $24 to get in?! That’s ridiculous. What if you just wanted to walk around and get a pumpkin. Not worth it at all. Greedy.”

But the price didn’t stop others from enjoying the festivities. 

One satisfied customer wrote on Saturday on Google Reviews: “It's our 2nd year going to Roloff Farms. Very friendly family environment. There’s a lot to do, a lot to see, and staff is very friendly. Will be going next year.”

Another commented on Facebook: “They did a fantastic job this year. The farm is beautiful! So well decorated and maintained. The tour was great and a lot of fun!! We will be back soon!” 

A third said: “It’s such a beautiful place to visit! Amazing people and amazing scenery!!! Definitely and hands down a fun experience!!! Don’t miss the pumpkin patch.” 

Matt, 59, posted a photo alongside his youngest son Jacob with the caption: “Who’s excited?! Pumpkin season 2021 has officially arrived! Day one took off without a hitch, these two helped make sure of it. Watch our stories to see all of the fun to be had on the farm this season, and click the link in our bio to grab tickets.”

The stories included a glimpse of the wagon tour with a guide pointing out fun features on the farm including 'Noah's Ark' complete with cutouts of rescued animals.

Other fun activities included the beautiful Scenic Trail, which allowed visitors to explore the farm and fun activities on foot.

Guests could shoot targets from big air cannons, get their faces painted or ride on the farm's new Choo Choo Train.

The Roloffs also showed off their gift store inside a 100-year-old restored barn, which Matt restored and was the sight of Amy's recent nuptials to new husband, Chris Marek.

The gift store included limited edition souvenirs, face masks and "famous salsa," which was "flying off the shelves.”

After exploring the Spooky Forest, guests could take their pick of the pumpkin patch, where prices started at $.69 a pound.

The 100-acre farm in Helvetia is run by patriarch Matt.

The family purchased the “small fixer upper” property in 1990 when it had only a “beat up old farmhouse, broken down barn and overgrown peach orchard.”

Over the years, Roloff Farms has been transformed to over 100 acres and garners visitors from all over the world, which has been seen on Little People, Big World. 

The sprawling property is home to the family’s famous 36-acre pumpkin patch, as well as a hand-built wooden ship.
