The recent episode of Little People, Big World revealed that the family is facing a big dilemma in terms of the farm’s future and who gets to own it.


Since Matt and Amy Roloff finalized their divorce in 2016, they have moved on and found someone else. With that comes the problem of managing the farm which they jointly own.

During the show’s June 12th episode, Amy expressed that she has no idea what will happen to the farm in the future.

Talking to the cameras, she said, "It'd be great to see the grandkids play here when they're five years old, but in the back of my mind, I also know it's a challenge sometimes with Matt and I living on the farm together, being divorced and everything."

Matt somehow agreed with his former wife and admitted that there is a part of him that wants to sell the farm, liquidate the assets and just move on with their respective lives


Even though the family patriarch and matriarch have the same sentiments, their sons Jeremy and Zach Roloff expressed that they feel conflicted about their parents’ opinions.

According to Jeremy, he refuses to see the Roloff legacy go down the drain just like that. Zach echoed his brother’s thoughts and said that he would be sad to know that the farm could potentially be sold and will not be passed down to the second generation and then to the third.

Matt expressed that the main conflict for him was the fact that because of the divorce’s terms, Amy is comfortable living in the family house while he is stuck in his double-wide trailer, which is not built for a little person and his needs.


As for Amy, she is persistent in having to stay in the house where she raised her family rather than finding a new home away from the farm that she could share with her boyfriend, Chris Marek.


Talking to Matt, Amy said, "I'm not into a buyout. I don't plan on moving unless we sell."

There have also been plans of having Jeremy and Zach take over the farm, but both sons were adamant in saying that they feel like they are not ready to take on a big role during this point of their lives.

In addition, Matt feels like his sons would not be willing to dedicate a chunk of their time in running the farm.

Matt has already shared that he had bought a property in Arizona but he did not specifically say when he plans to move or how much of his time will be spent there.
