Little People, Big World fans are surprised that Matt Roloff took the family farm off the market. He’s focusing on a new and exciting venture.
Surprisingly, Little People, Big World star Matt Roloff changed his mind about selling the family farm, and actually took it off the market. The patriarch caused a bit of a brouhaha when he decided to put 16 acres of the Helvetia, Oregon-based property, Roloff Farms, up for sale. Matt is already involved in a feud with his son, Zach Roloff, with fans thinking that his new decision didn’t sit well with the rest of the family.

The Little People, Big World star recently took to his Instagram to share some big news regarding the future of Roloff Farms. Matt posted a photo on his Instagram which showed him standing in front of the big house, where Amy Roloff used to live. The father of four then revealed that he had decided to offer the property for short-term rentals. Matt revealed to fans that he had listed a portion of the farm, knowing that large sales typically take six to 12 months, with, “no guarantees.” He shared that he’d never expected to make so many new business connections during the selling process.
What Is Happening With Roloff Farms?
Matt revealed in the lengthy social media post that several parties were interested in using the big house as a bed and breakfast. The inventor then shared that he had made the decision to go into business with iTrip Vacations, which is a company that will manage your home as a vacation rental. Matt joked that after intense negotiations, and a lot of “spreadsheets,” he had finalized a deal. In the end, he made the decision to pull the small farm off the open market, and make it accessible to anyone who wants to spend a few nights in the Roloff family home.
As usual, Matt is working behind the scenes to make the transition painless. He now has to refurbish the big home, so it’s a pleasant place for guests to stay. While no fees have been discussed at this point, the farm should be available to rent in a short time. The cost of a night will depend on demand and the season. Fans are wondering why Matt turned to Plan B, instead of trying to move forward with a buyer. It could be that his son Zach was right when he noted that his father had overpriced the farm. Sadly, no buyer has agreed that Roloff Farm is worth the $4 million asking price, even if it does come with an old Western town, castle, and outdoor pool.
A new season of Little People, Big World is set to air in November, with the trailer still showing some major tension between the family. Zach and Tori have moved an hour down the road, to get away from Matt and his partner, Caryn Chandler. Currently, the younger couple is isolating themselves, and even visited a rival pumpkin patch with their own children. Matt is moving on with his own plans, and it doesn’t look like he’s going to shoot down any ideas that come up, as long as they’re about making money off the farm.
