Little People, Big World: Matt Roloff Clarifies Farm Buyout Option
Matt Roloff explained on social media the buyout outcome shown on LPBW. He stated that Amy sold him half the farm. Matt is now the sole owner of the land where his double wide trailer rests. It is also the side of the land where Matt is currently living. He clarified the sale didn’t include the house where she lives or the pumpkin patch. The original farmstead is still 50/50 owned by both Matt Roloff and his ex Amy Roloff.
The Little People, Big World farmer assured fans that the only change to the farm is to give him title to the land where his trailer is so that he can make remodeling adjustments as he needs for his homestead. Now, Matt Roloff owns the DW trailer land. So, he can make the necessary changes to it to better fit his needs. Matt wants to make the trailer more accessible like his Arizona home. Some improvements may include lowering the kitchen and installing a walk-in shower.

Clarification! 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. :)). 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 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. She will remain in her house (and on the farm) and 1/2 owner of our original farm until she decides to leave… 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! 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. 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?
