Little People, Big World star Matt Roloff was shown in an interview last week talking about what’s new on Roloff Farms and giving fans an update on the 2017 pumpkin season. Matt Roloff and the entire Roloff family have been busy on Roloff Farms since the end of September, as activities for this year’s pumpkin season are “in full swing.” Three weeks into pumpkin patch events on Roloff Farms, Matt Roloff did an interview with KPTV out of Portland, Oregon, to talk what new attractions have been added for this year’s pumpkin season, as well as how successful Roloff Farms has been every year for nearly two decades.
According to Matt Roloff, Roloff Farms has been open to the public and “growing every year” for the last 17 to 18 years. Matt and Amy Roloff’s oldest two children, fraternal twins Jeremy and Zach Roloff, were only around 9-years-old or 10-years-old when Roloff Farms in Helvetia, Oregon, which is a suburb of just over 50,000 residents in Portland, Oregon, officially welcomed the public for pumpkin season farm activities. Roloff Farms and the famous pumpkin patch has grown since then, but Matt Roloff said in the interview on October 17 that they want to keep the pumpkin patch “quaint and family and friendly,” while still adding “new apparatuses.”
Matt Roloff goes on to say that this year the Roloff family added a “Lucy race roller,” describing it as “a thing” that kids “roll the balls down.” Matt explains that the race roller is an idea taken from his latest children’s book called Little Lucy Big Life. The 56-year-old reality TV star also said that “we’re always adding new things” to Roloff Farms, including a pirate ship, but also said that it’s difficult “to sit down in the winter months and try to think about what can we do next year” that will be fun and safe, but also new and exciting. After being asked about the “millions of fans worldwide” from Little People, Big World, Matt Roloff shared that the “pumpkin patch is that one time of year” when fans can actually “come to Roloff Farms” and “hang out with us.”
Continuing on about the “many new additions to the farm,” Matt Roloff said it’s been “an extremely exciting year” with the birth of his first grandson, Jackson Kyle, to Zach and Tori Roloff, as well as the birth of granddaughter Ember Jean to Jeremy and Audrey Roloff, “just a few months apart.” Matt went on to call both of his grandbabies “very cute” and “very adorable,” adding that he gets to “see them both quite often” because they live “real close” to Roloff Farms. Proud grandpa Matt Roloff called being a grandparent to Jackson and Ember “awfully fun” and said that he “can’t wait to turn the “pumpkin patch operation” over to them when he retires.
The Roloff Farms website calls the pumpkin season a “pumpkin patch agritainment extravaganza,” and Matt Roloff shared that visitors are welcome every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. through the last weekend in October. Various farm activities include the pumpkin patch, where Matt Roloff said they have been “selling lots of pumpkins” this year, as well as wagon tours and a kid’s zone full of “fun entertainment.” The More Good Day Oregon interview for KPTV said that Roloff Farms “screams fall in Oregon,” and In Touch Weekly shared back in June that Roloff Farms “grew from 34 acres to 110 acres,” which was “no small task” for Matt Roloff.
