The end of an era may be upon us. On a recent episode of Little People, Big World, Matt Roloff sat down with his ex-wife Amy to discuss whether selling Roloff Farm should be the family's next step. Understandably, the matriarch was a little resistant to the idea, but now it seems as though they're more serious about the possibility. Matt took to Instagram over the weekend to share a video of their property, and many think it's a final farewell.
"Cruising the farm with a new selfie stick," Matt captioned the clip. "Hope You all are having a great day!!" One person wrote, "Did you sell the farm?" Another added, "Matt, do not sell the farm ever… it's your legacy and your children and grandchildren's future."
In the original clip, both Amy and Matt's new relationships took center stage. And it seemed like Matt's romance with farm manager Caryn is the reason the 56-year-old was thinking of moving on from the farm. Even after the two divorced in 2016, Amy has continued to reside in the family home, much to Caryn's dismay. "I just want my own path away from the farm, away from Amy," Matt exclaimed during the promo. "It’s always going to be awkward." Check out the video above to see what Matt and Amy had to say!
Caryn also wanted Matt to take a step away from Amy, and for them to completely move on with their lives. "I don’t want to make a decision in our relationship based on what Amy might do in the future. I want to make our own decisions," she told him.
Not to mention, Matt recently called the farm a "burden." On last week's episode, he said, "Let's say it hits the fan at the farm, and I just can't deal with it anymore. I can't deal with Amy's attitude." He added, "If it gets any worse, I just feel like this is just like an escape. It's possible that I could move in here. 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."
The family farm has been a mainstay on Little People, Big World since it first aired back in March 2006. It's often where filming for the hit TLC show takes place, and where all the Roloff kids grew up. Matt and Amy purchased the 34 acres in May 1990, and have since expanded it to include "a three-story tree fort and a marvelous Western Town (complete with underground tunnels), a soccer field, in-ground pool, and more imaginative play structures" for the kids, according to its website. Most impressively, since they've owned it, it's grown to be over 100 acres and "is a successful agricultural business, event venue, and major tourist destination during pumpkin season." If the family really does end up putting it on the market, we'll definitely miss seeing the family have adventures there! We'll just have to wait and see how it pans out.
Little People, Big World airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on TLC.
