Do Matt and Amy Roloff From ‘Little People, Big World’ Want to Sell Roloff Farms?
We’ve known about Roloff Farms for as long as we’ve known the Roloff family. Thanks to TLC’s program, Little People, Big World, Matt and Amy Roloff have been a favorite couple on TV since the show first aired in 2006. We’ve seen them raise their four kids, take care of the farm, and navigate their marriage over the years — and we’ve also seen them go through a difficult divorce after over two decades of marriage. Through it all, their family-owned farm has kept Matt and Amy connected even after they were separated.
Roloff Farm, which lies just 30 miles west of Portland, is an iconic piece of LPBW. Matt and Amy’s children have gotten married on the farm’s grounds, and fans love visiting during pumpkin season. Now, it seems Matt and Amy are ready to move on with their lives and possibly sell the farm. Here’s why.
Matt and Amy’s divorce created a difficult living situation at the farm
Fans never saw Matt and Amy’s divorce coming since the two were together for so long, but both of them have since moved on with significant others of their own. And when Matt started dating the manager of the farm, Caryn Chandler, Radar Online reports he moved into a small house just 500 feet away from Amy, who resides on the farm. And the publication also notes Matt said, “It’s tough thinking about spending an eternity here with Amy” when it came to living on the farm with her while he figured out his preferred living situation. He also added that living on the same property as his ex-wife was “very, very bizarre,” and he was hoping for a fresh start with Caryn.
While Matt hoped the smaller home close to the farm but still away from Amy would be enough space for him and Caryn, it appears it wasn’t, as Radar reported he then sold the home in June 2018. As for where Matt then planned to go, it seems he and Caryn then bought a “vacation” home in Arizona and have since considered retiring there. Matt seems to be spending more and more time away from Oregon, so this could mean he’s all done with the farm, too. Only time will tell what his ultimate move will be.
Amy Roloff has hinted at a move in the past
It’s not just Matt who’s hinted that he’s ready to move on from farm life in Oregon and pursue new dreams. Good Housekeeping notes Amy wrote a tweet that concerned fans that she was ready to move out, too. Her tweet said, “The purge in my house begins. One room at a time or it becomes overwhelming to think about it in its entirety. I should have taken a pic of the bf.” This “purge” process had many fans thinking she was cleaning out to get ready to move. As one fan asked, “Are you moving, Amy?” And another one commented, “I hope you aren’t moving and giving Matt the house!!” Amy also posted about her house purging process on Instagram. “It’s hard to let go of some things though but in the long run it’s a good thing. Isn’t that kind of like life- hanging on to stuff and people when it’s time to let go or the other way around,” she captioned the post.
Good Housekeeping notes Amy also mentioned relocating when she visited her daughter, Molly, in Spokane, Washington. On Instagram, Amy wrote about how wonderful her time with Molly was, and she also added, “I kind of like Spokane! Hmm….” This, of course, had fans theorizing she was considering a move.
Matt has called the farm a ‘burden’ before
Taking care of the family farm is hard, and with so many life and family changes, managing it with an ex-spouse is even harder. In Touch Weekly reminds us when Matt was deciding what he wanted to do regarding his living situation in 2018, he called Roloff Farms a burden. “There’s part of me that wants to keep the farm and build a house that suits me, but part of me just wants to sell the farm and liquidate it and move on. It’s a burden,” he said during an episode of the show.
So far, it looks like the farm is still being cared for by the Roloff family, and considering how iconic it is, we’re hoping they decide to keep it or sell it to one of their kids to carry on its legacy. It’s still proving to be an ultra-successful tourist destination and moneymaker, too. We doubt they’d want to give that up.
