ABOUT US


Sam and Mary Jane Roop wanted to do a family project with their three small children. They wanted to incorporate the farm, family, and agricultural education.

In 1996 Brookfield Pumpkins was born. We started with one acre of pumpkins and gourds. We found our first year that the public loved the experience of being on the farm.

As our number of pumpkins grew so did our children. Julie, Lauren, and Jake were all in elementary school when the pumpkin patch started. The girls painted faces for a quarter, while Jake helped by picking gourds and pumpkins.

Julie is a stay-at-home mom to our first grandchild, Bailey Elizabeth, and lives in Delevan, NY with her husband, Eric, a dairy farmer. Lauren and her husband, Jordan, live in Norman, Oklahoma where Jordan attends law school and Lauren works for a law firm. Jake and his wife, Sarah, are Graduate Resident Assistants at Wheaton College in Illinois where Sarah is receiving her Masters Degree while Jake is a 5th grade teacher. While life, love and schooling has our children spread all over the country they make a great effort to come help on pumpkin patch weekends and help with pumpkin patch tasks throughout the year!

Brookfield Farms has been in the Ramsburg/Roop family for over 100 years. The Roop children represent the sixth generation to be raised on the farm. Sam stays busy 12 months out of the year working full time on the farm. He raises corn, soybeans, wheat, and hay. He also raises beef cattle.
