‘Little People, Big World’: Will Matt Roloff Sell Roloff Farms Now That Amy Roloff Is Moving Off the Property?
Matt and Amy Roloff have an ultra-complicated relationship, and as the most recent season of Little People, Big World progressed, it seemed to only get more dramatic. When the show first started 14 years ago, Matt and Amy were happily married, living and working on Roloff Farms, and raising their four kids. A lot has changed since then, however. Not only did they divorce years ago, but the fate of Roloff Farms was up for major discussion this entire past season of the show.
Giving up her part of the farm was never an easy decision for Amy Roloff
Amy spent this entire recent season of LPBW discussing what could potentially happen with Roloff Farms, and it’s clear the decision was always an extremely difficult one. Radar Online reminds us after Matt and Amy divorced, their living situation wasn’t ideal for either of them. Amy resided in the big farmhouse the family always lived in, and Matt moved into a smaller home just 500 feet away with his girlfriend, Caryn, on the same property. The ex-couple knew this wasn’t a sustainable long-term solution, but Amy was hesitant to give it all up and move away, as the house and farm provided stability for her post-divorce.
On the season finale, Amy explained her decision to sell her half of the farm. “The farm worked for me because we had two people making it happen. I can’t do it on my own,” Good Housekeeping reports she stated. Amy also added, “This process has not been easy for me. I don’t think Matt has made it easy. I will be glad when it’s completely done and we part ways.”
Matt Roloff has called the farm a burden in the past
Matt appeared happy about Amy’s decision to go with the buyout plan, and now, it seems the ball’s in his court. Will he sell the farm completely, or will he keep it for his family and his girlfriend, Caryn (who also used to work on the farm) to enjoy?
We know Matt has a soft place in his heart for Roloff Farms, but we can’t forget that he considered the property a burden in the past. In Touch Weekly reminds us he said on an episode of the show, “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.” We also can’t forget that Matt and Caryn bought a house in Arizona previously, says Radar Online. While it may just be a vacation home, it could also be a clue that the couple is ready to pack up and leave Oregon altogether.
He’s likely to sell it because of his girlfriend, Caryn
So, now that Matt has full control of the property, is he going to sell? We’re thinking it’s likely. He’s stated on the show in the past that it’s weird for Caryn to be living on the property with his ex-wife, and we doubt they’d want to move into Amy’s big home, either. There’s also Caryn and Matt’s future to consider. Good Housekeeping notes Matt said during the finale, “My goal is to eventually get married to Caryn — I like that idea. … When you get married though, you immediately live together, and there’s nowhere for us to live.”
It seems the Roloffs aren’t in a huge rush to make any major decisions with the farm, however. Radar Online reports as of late May, Matt and Amy are still both on the deed of the property. Perhaps they’re still working through an agreement — or perhaps it was all faked for the show. We’ll have to wait and see what happens in the next few months.
