‘Little People, Big World’: What is the Fate of the Family Farm Now That Matt and Amy Roloff are Divorced?
Fans are still reeling from the 2016 divorce of Matt and Amy Roloff. The couple, who first came on our tv screens, portraying an image of a loving family, deciding to go their separate ways was a big thing to get used to.
Since their split, Little People, Big World has shown the pair discussing how to fully separate, which included talks of what to do with their family farm.
Before their breakup, the pair would grow and sell pumpkins yearly.
But what will happen to the farm now? Will Amy try to buy it from Matt or vice versa? Will they both sell the property and move on with their lives?
Matt recently took to Instagram to set the record straight.
Will the farm still be open to buy pumpkins?
Since the show began airing, fans have loved to go to the family’s farm and buy pumpkins. But with so much up in the air, people wondered if that was still an option.
“Clarification!” Matt wrote on Instagram. “The Future of the farm! Sometimes people get so far astray of the truth we have to write direct messages to correct all the assumptions.”
“We are getting quite a number of inquiries asking if we are still open for Pumpkin Season this fall. Answer is yes … pumpkin seeds went into the ground 3 days ago. “
What will happen to the farm now?
Now that the couple is no longer together, co-owning the farm is no longer a permanent option. So, Amy will be selling some of her portion to Matt.
“I don’t think people understand the buyout option… let me explain.. despite what you see on TV … I have chosen to buy (and Amy has chosen to sell) me only one side of the farm,” he continued. “At this time.. Not the original farmstead … not the side with the pumpkin patch or her house.. for now she is only selling me her partial share of ownership in the side (DW) that I live on.”
Is Amy moving out?
Living with your ex is probably not the easiest thing to do, but luckily for Amy and Matt, their property is pretty huge. Right now, Amy still lives on half of the farm and that won’t be changing anytime soon.
“She will remain in her house (and on the farm) and 1/2 owner of our original farm until she decides to leave,” he wrote. “At that time we will jointly work to sell the side she lives on together. This may happen in the future but it’s not happening yet!”
What is changing with the farm?
So, really, not much is changing about the farm right now.
“The only change (for now) is that I will take title to the DW and can decide to remodel it to be more accessible with a lower kitchen or walk-in shower like my home in Arizona,” he finished. “The future may be different …but Now is Now …and this is where we are at this moment in time…. Maybe one of the kids will eventually buy it?? Who knows?”
