Rombach’s Pumpkin Patch Continues to Grow
Rombach’s has grown tremendously over the last 100 years. It was originally a gas station and produce stand, but the Rombach family turned it into a farm full of activities.
Employee Sue Zuroweste informs us a little about the history, “We’re in our 101st year, run by the third generation, Marsha and Chip Rombach.”
Not only is the farm just for pumpkin picking but it’s full of activities. Zuroweste exclaims, “We have a lot of vendors, we have pony rides, hayrides, face painting, and petting zoo.”
Since 1928 the family has continued its tradition. Customers travel long ways to pick the pumpkins and the kids love to get involved. Toni Faletti, an employee at Rombach’s loves to put her artistic talent to use, “It’s a really fun experience and the kids are so adorable and excited when they get their face painted and see it.”
Unfortunately, the fun may not last for much longer. The St. Louis Premium Outlets have taken quite a bit of the farms land. The landmark has been considering making a move since 2008. Until then, customers continue to pile in year after year.
Lindenwood Student Ryan Moore excitedly shares why he returns every year, “They have a good selection of pumpkins out here, and they have a good family environment and so it’s a lot of fun to just come out and hang out, maybe just have a ride or two.”
While the farm is still thriving, take a trip to Rombach’s and enjoy the fall festivities.
