Rombach Farms in Chesterfield has closed

CHESTERFIELD, MO – One of the most iconic pumpkin patches in the St. Louis area has announces its closing immediately.  Rombach Farms in Chesterfield posted on its Facebook page: “due to circumstances beyond our control we are closing. We were seriously thinking about retiring but now he have no choice.”

Families in the area have been going to pick out Halloween pumpkins at the farm in Chesterfield since the 1950’s.

That’s when the three late Rombach brothers started planting pumpkins.

A Facebook post from the farm says legal issues between the heirs of the property are playing a role in the closure.

😪 We want to thank everyone for all of these years of fun…. lots of great memories ! I realize now, more than ever, that this farm is a special place for so many people… the public, our employees and us.

Due to circumstances beyond our control we are closing. We were seriously thinking about retiring but now we have no choice. We have to close this year. There is a very slim chance we’ll come back next year for a final good bye hurrah.

Thank you all for your support over the years. Thank you for making this farm what it is/was today. Without everyone’s support, it wouldn’t have been what it is today. Lots of great times had by all.

We will miss it too. God will open another door. We just have to be patient.”
