Matt Roloff Reveals in Season Premiere of ‘Little People, Big World’ That He’s Leaving Roloff Farms to Ex-Wife Amy

“I’m leaving you the family farm… AND some angry kids. Enjoy…” 

Season 25 of Little People, Big World premieres Tuesday with a surprising reveal from Matt Roloff regarding the future of Roloff Farms. 

As The Ashley previously told you, Matt announced in May 2022 that he was selling a portion of Roloff Farms. Matt insinuated at the time that his twin sons, Zach and Jeremy Roloff, were to blame for the sale, igniting an ongoing feud among the twins and their father. 

In a clip from the season premiere, viewers see Matt and fiance Caryn Chandler sit down to chat with Matt’s ex-wife Amy Roloff and Amy’s husband Chris Marek, during which Matt shares with the couple that Roloff Farms will ultimately go to Amy. 

“We’re all but decided that when I die, we’re giving whatever piece of the farm I still have to Amy,” Matt says in the clip. 

“You can figure it out from there, Amy!”

Amy–- clearly stunned by this news-– admits she doesn’t “know how to comment on” the decision, before going on to tell viewers, “it’s crazy.”  

Matt proceeds to tell Amy and Chris that this decision regarding the future of the farm has “been kicked around,” claiming any other plan would be “too complicated.” 

Later on, Caryn reveals that the idea for her future husband to leave the farm to his former wife was actually her idea. 

“You’re not taking credit for this, pal.”

“Let’s talk about the fact that I’m the one who had the idea that you leave everything you own-– aside from [the] Arizona [home] because that’s ours together–- to Amy,” she later says to Matt on camera. 

(As The Ashley previously told you, Matt and Caryn purchased a vacation home in Surprise, Arizona, from Caryn’s parents in 2018 for $375,000.) 

Matt admits the plan to leave Roloff Farms to Amy was, in fact, Caryn’s idea; Caryn then explains why she believes this decision makes the most sense. 

“Hard pass on cleaning up Matt’s mistakes.”

“Your family in the first part of your life built and worked for this farm,” she tells Matt. “I came in later and I don’t want it and I don’t ever want to take anything away from the people that built it– the family, the kids– so that is a definite. 

“Whether we get married or we don’t, the farm is off the table,” she adds. 

Watch the clip of Matt delivering the news to Amy below. 

Currently, Matt is renting the Roloff family’s former home for short-term rental stays. In another preview clip from the new season, Amy blasts Matt’s plans to rent out their former family home.

“I never pictured the house that I’ve raised my kids in for the last 30 years to be a short-term rental,” Amy says in the clip. “It’s too big of a place. There should be a family, or someone, in it.”

Amy acknowledged that she has no say in the home’s future, given that Matt owns it.

“It’s not like I wish him ill will. It makes sense, for Matt to do it, from a business prospective…but from a personal perspective, I just see it as very sad,” Amy said.

  1. Well, the bottom line is that it’s Matt’s property, and he can do as he pleases. And Amy’s reaction was quite amusing. She is, basically, a very bossy, pushy woman who always has to “win” and be Queen of the Castle. I’m quite sure she was without words simply because she doesn’t know what to do when there’s no conflict, and nothing to argue about!!
    I also think she does NOT like it that Matt and Chris get along. She’d be much happier if they were acting like two territorial barnyard roosters (even though there is NO reason for them to be doing so).

  2. I don’t know enough about them to know if this is a good or bad decision but from what I do know, and because there are four kids involved to inherit what he has, I see why he’s wanting to do it this way. However, Amy is a miserable B**ch IMO. She can’t just be grateful or say thank you or anything… She seems like she’s never satisfied. I feel like she’s mean to Matt- always has been and it’s very unnecessary.

    1. Thank you, Sir! Been trying to like her better but in last night’s episode she again showed her true colors by reacting so ungraciously. Her reaction was truly disgusting!

  3. I guess out of all the people for him to live the Farm to Amy makes the most sense. She was half of the reason to became successful. Makes more sense to leave it to their kids, but Matt likes to make things harder than they need to.

    But I will believe it when I see it. I just don’t believe Matt will actually do it. I think Karen has worked to hard to get a hold of the money and she’s not letting it go for nothing.
