Matt and Amy purchased their 34 acre farm in May, 1990. Nestled between rolling hills and farms just outside of Portland, Oregon, the property consisted of a beat up old farmhouse, a broken down barn and an overgrown peach orchard. Amy would have been comfortable with a beautiful home they had found in the city, but Matt was drawn to the rural life. “He had a dream” — a big vision of what this property could be, their ideal home.
While Amy managed their growing family, Matt set out to make their dream come true. He envisioned a working farm, but also a magical place for his children. During the early years he built a Tom-Sawyer-like adventure land with a huge pirate ship, a three-story tree fort and a marvelous Western Town (complete with underground tunnels)! Later he added a soccer field, in ground pool, and more imaginative play structures. He continues adding each and every year. Today, Roloff Farm has expanded to over 100 acres and is a successful agricultural business, event venue, and major tourist destination during pumpkin season.
