Little People, Big World’s Amy and Matt Roloff clash over Farm Sale

Going out with a bang! Amy Rolloff and ex-husband Matt Rolloff did not see eye to eye during the season 23 finale of Small people, big world – especially when it came to selling part of Roloff Farms.

The former couple, who split in 2015, squared off on Tuesday July 19’s episode after Matt, 60, revealed their 32-year-old twin sons, jeremy and Zach Rolloff, had chosen not to buy any part of their family farm. In May, it was revealed that Matt had listed 16 acres of the 100+ acre property in Hillsboro, Oregon.

During Tuesday’s finale, Amy, 57, admitted she “bited her tongue” with her ex-spouse over the issue of selling the country to someone other than their children.

“I think you went crazy or something,” Amy told Matt after he explained that the boys wouldn’t agree to his terms of purchase. “I don’t know the details of the negotiations with the two boys. For the price, the kids can’t afford it.” (Zach claimed May his father’s comments about why he and Jeremy decided not to buy the land were “misguided and wrong.”)

The Matriarch – who also shares Molly28 and Jacob, 25, with Matt – found her ex-husband had created a “wasp’s nest” with the way he handled the sale. (For her part, Amy sold Matt her portion of the land during their 2016 divorce.)

The California native claimed during the show that the twins were upset that the property had shrunk and that he was only thinking of all their children when he decided to put some of the acreage on the market.

“The good news is there’s 93 acres for this family,” Matt told his ex, to which Amy replied, “No, there’s 93 acres for Matt Roloff. It is no longer part of the family.”

The duo continued to clash as they discussed the controversial topic, with Amy coming to the defense of her children. However, Matt claimed the children got a deal that was “basically half” before deciding to offer part of the land for sale to the public.

While pleading his case, Matt said it’s the “sense of entitlement that ruins” how the family works together on the pumpkin farm. He went on to insist that the kids appear to have “expectations that they get [the property] for free [and] not do the work.”

The two agreed to disagree on the matter, before Amy told viewers that Matt isn’t taking on the tension created by the country drama. “What we consider to be Roloff Farms no longer exists,” she added during her confessional.

The finale ended with a title screen that read, “Three days after this conversation, the real estate company put down the ‘For Sale’ sign.”

Amy told it exclusively Us weekly in November 2021 that part of her “probably regrets that I should have bought Matt from the farmhouse.” She added: “I think I’ll always miss this space.”

Zach, on the other hand, revealed during a May episode of the TLC show that while discussing a possible purchase of the family land with his father, “things weren’t going well.” For his part, Matt claimed during the episode that “Zach was really hot. He didn’t come to negotiate. He came in to demand.”
