Little People, Big World fans travel from all over to visit the Roloff family’s farm, but according to Yelp, they are not happy with the experience.
Many claim the Roloff farm is overpriced at $24 per head. In addition to the alleged steep prices, the times advertised online are anything but correct.
Jodie L. commented: “The price has skyrocketed to $24 for anyone 2 and over…that’s not over 2 … IS 2 YEARS OLD. $24 and you still pay for a pumpkin and food. I’ve taken my grandkids here the past 3 years and they had great time petting goats and running around, panning for gold etc. But who can afford an afternoon out with your kids under 10? $150 for an afternoon is ridiculous. So sad to give this review for a hometown tradition.”
While Maggie W. commented: “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 overpriced. 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.”
Followed by Jessica who stated: “We’re from California and wanted to see the farm today because Yelp said it’s open till 6 pm. [Unfortunately], it’s not true… It’s closed after driving up here.. They need to update this website soon before more people [waste] their time & money…”
But the complaints didn’t stop there. In addition to the price hike, lackluster food and incorrect times other complained about the poor service at Roloff Farms.
“Really wanted to love it, user Jennifer N. said. “My husband and I were very disappointed in our trip to Roloff farms …. There is a 1/4 mile walk around a small part of the farm, a sad little store [where] the employees don’t even bother to stop their conversation to say hello. And yes we got the opportunity to take a picture with one of the family members but they [were] quick to have us move on so they could get back to their cell phone. So my suggestion [is to] save your money and maybe try one of the other pumpkin patches in the area.”
The Roloff family has yet to comment on the staggering claims.
