Roloff Farm is owned and operated by the family that aired on TLC’s reality show Little People, Big World. Visiting their farm during pumpkin season, you will catch a glimpse of their creative wonderland that they have built. The pigs live in a pig house, part of which is made of straw, part is made of twigs, and part is made out of bricks. The goats live in a Gotel and they have a plank that walk up onto so that when the tractor rides through for the tour, the goats are up over our heads. They have a miniature town there with a barber shop, jail, bakery, bank, doctor’s office, etc. It is a play land. We were able to explore around this area a bit because the tractor stopped and let us off for a while until the cowbell wrangled everyone back onboard. There is a giant tree house that is built so that
the tree is able to continue growing uninhibited. If you are a fan of the show, you will catch glimpses of the TLC stars walking around the farm while you are exploring. Matt waved to us as we passed by on the tractor tour.
There is miniature golf, a massive haystack, a couple of slides, a tricycle race track (which I made a couple of loops on), and some giant slingshots with targets. The slingshots were a lot of fun for both kids and adults. I’ve only named a few of the many fun activities to do at Roloff Farm. This is definitely worth checking out with your friends or family. There are food carts and also beer and cider on tap.
Finish it off by picking out a pumpkin and getting something to eat on the way out. Their farm is located in Hillsboro, which is a short drive from Portland, and it is $14/person for everyone over the age of 2. However, that price includes the tractor tour and all activities available on site. We felt like it was worth every penny.
Once we got home, my husband, Kendall, and my son, Judah designed and carved the pumpkin while I roasted the seeds and we lit some candles inside our jack-o-lantern and snacked on the yummy seeds, simply seasoned with salt and olive oil. It was the perfect ending to the perfect day.
