MATT Roloff has taken fans on a video tour of his upcoming pumpkin festival at the family farm.
The Little People, Big World star struggled to hype the event after many fans vowed to boycott it.
Matt drove his tractor around his $4 million farm.
The 61-year-old spoke with enthusiasm as he demonstrated the almost finished product Fields and attractions.
Speaking directly to the camera, he excitedly boasted, “This might be one of the best pumpkin seasons we’ve ever had.”
Matt described some of the new and returning favorites, including the trike track, the newly remodeled children’s area and the ever-popular duck races.
But don’t worry, Matt promises that no ducks will be harmed while playing the game.
“No, they’re not real ducks. These are rubber ducks. They’re rubber ducks,” he assured. “Everyone was worried about it.”
Matt continued with views of the coffee house and his new home, still under construction, which guests can see from the outside.
“It’s kind of cool because it’s still under construction,” he interjected. “You can see it up close.”

Matt ended his tour by predicting, “It’s going to be a fun year.”
Visitors from previous years reserve their judgment about the event. Especially given the cancellation of personalized tours.
Earlier this month, the farm’s official Instagram page posted an update that they will not be offering private tours during their famous pumpkin season.
The news may come as Matt’s son Zach appears to have stepped away from the family’s TLC reality series as he headlined the tours with his mother Amy, 61.
Critics were harsh on social media, saying they wouldn’t be attending the Pumpkin Festival if 33-year-old Zach wasn’t there.
“Not the same without Zach touring!” one person wrote.
“If Zach isn’t there, I’m not going,” said another.
The LPBW patriarch seemed excited to provide visitors with new entertainment by introducing a range of attractions.
During the annual pumpkin festival at the 106-acre, $4 million farm in October, customers can enjoy a trike track, bunny hutch and coffee house.
Roloff Farms wrote on their official Instagram account: “WHAT’S NEW AT THE FARM THIS YEAR?”
“Trike Track – Those of you who remember when we held our Pumpkin Festival on the other side of the farm may remember our beloved Trike Track. Well, we’ve put one up on the new side of the farm and we have a feeling it’s going to be a big hit!
“Bunny Hutch – This year we have four precious bunnies to look at and play with in our new bunny hutch! If there’s a staff member there, you might even get a chance to pet one (guests aren’t allowed to hold bunnies).
“Coffee House – A building perfectly located in the middle of the action is now serving hot coffee to our guests! We will also have hot tea, cider and hot chocolate available for purchase here.”
They concluded: “To name just a few! We are working hard to make this an unforgettable pumpkin season with our 2023 festival.”
“Come out, bring the family and join us in making some memories this fall.”
“We have decided that we will not be offering private tours this year,” the farm’s account wrote last week.
“But good news! You can see so much of the farm on our wagon tours and there’s a good chance you’ll see Matt or Amy at our pumpkin festival during the day.”
