"Little People, Big World" Pumpkin Season will start at Roloff Farms on October 5. According to newly announced details on the Roloff Farms website, the season ends on October 28. As usual, there's plenty of fun to be had by kids and the young at heart on the farm in Helvetia, Oregon, north of Hillsboro. Visiting days during Pumpkin Season include Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Opening hours are from 10 am through to 5.30 pm. Parking and entrance are free but expect to pay for most activities, so have your wallet handy. Golden Tours still run in September through from this weekend.

Roloff Farms entertainment during the season

Entertainment during the season is what it's all about. The "Little people, Big World" public Pumpkin Season grows in popularity every year. The playgrounds and kiddie activities are close to the heart of patriarch Matt Roloff. Matt loves kids and is building a special relationship with his grandchildren Ember and Jackson. One of the highlights of the farm comes from choosing pumpkins from the patch. Other activities to entertain the family includes pony rides, face painting, a fun house and wagon tours.

There's no time for boredom on the farm as kids enjoy the putt-putt and the petting zoo. Other activities include the Little Lucy Ball Race, the Hay Pyramid, and a Bamboo Maze.

Adults and kids get to have fun together with a Walk on the Wild Side (see a tiger).

When you get hungry or thirsty, don't fret, as food's on sale - from yummy icecream through to pizza, barbeque, and burgers. Oh, and don't forget to pick up some of the famous Roloff Pumpkin Salsa which is making a comeback this year.

Will you see a Roloff at the Pumpkin Season festivities?

The Roloff family work hard during the Pumpkin Season, so there's a good chance you will spot one of them. Making it more fun, guests can buy a tee-shirt from the Gift barn and snag an autograph. If you feel determined to meet a Roloff, the best way is to book a Golden Tour which runs through from September 1 to 30.

Remember that "Little People Big World" started out with Matt and Amy just beginning the farm. The aim of the TLC reality show has always been about bringing awareness to the little people who try to make it in a big world. They are hard working people, but kind at heart, just like most people are.

The Pumpkin Season is part and parcel of a working business venture, so while you may get that autograph, it will cost you. Some activities cost more than others so budget for a visit to the farm. The costs are clearly displayed on the rolofffarms.com website.

Things to know about visiting the Pumpkin Farm in season

Pets may not be taken into the farm but genuine service animals are allowed. However, they need to be on a leash at all times.

Roloff Farms have a no-smoking policy so please respect that. Wheelchairs are fine as the farm is designed to be friendly in that respect. The wagons are handicap accessible so people should not be worried about asking for help. The Roloff's of "Little People, Big World" are very aware of safety so children need to be accompanied by adults, especially in the Adventure Area.
