Well, that got nasty real fast! Amy Roloff is really basking in the glory of pumpkin season — which is the busiest time of year on her family's farm — but some Little People, Big World fans think that now that she is divorced from her husband Matt Roloff, she doesn't have any business using his last name. She got a ton of backlash on a recent photo promoting Roloff Farms and her homemade food business from some who think she should legally change her name back to her maiden name.
Arrr… @rolofffarms Pumpkin Patch. Enjoy the Fall season at Amy Roloff's Little Kitchen – Pumpkin & Banana…
The 53-year-old dressed up as a pirate as she set out to work yet another weekend at the Roloff Farms pumpkin patch. In the caption of the photo, she reminded fans that they can order some of her food products like pumpkin bread, banana bread, pumpkin spice pancake mix, along with her famous pumpkin salsa. She also invited fans to visit the pumpkin patch, where she works with most of her most of her family members — including her sons Jeremy, Zach, and their wives Audrey and Tori — and guests can meet the LPBW stars while they enjoy fun fall activities like pumpkin picking and hayrides. But some fans were upset that she was using her ex-husband's name to promote her business.

"She should be using her maiden name, not Roloff," one fan commented, and another asked, "Why does Amy carry Matt's name when they are divorced?" But other fans came to Amy's defense, and one explained, "A lot of women don't change it after a divorce. Especially if they have children."
It's unclear why Amy — whose maiden name is Knight — decided to keep Matt's name, but whether it's because she wanted to have the same last name as her children or she just chooses not to change it, one thing is for sure: it's none of anyone's business but hers.
