Roloff Farms has been a major part of Little People, Big World for more than a decade now — and despite Matt and Amy Roloff's divorce, the thought of Amy walking away from the farm for good is still bittersweet for many viewers. But alas, the family matriarch has been considering selling her half of the business to her ex-husband for quite some time now. It makes sense that the top question on fans' minds is: Did Amy finally sell the farm to Matt?
Did Amy Roloff sell the farm to Matt?
It's the big, lingering question on LPBW fans' minds — but frustratingly, the answer isn't yet clear.
During an episode titled "To Sell or Not to Sell," which premiered on Sept. 29, Amy was in the process of moving out of her house on the north side of the farm, which she and Matt still own together. That's because she had already purchased a new house and was going to be moving in soon.
"I have a plan to try to move things forward. It's a plan to buy Amy out of the north side of the farm," Matt explained. "That side includes a lot of the high-maintenance things like the pirate ship, the western town, the castle. And the pumpkin business is really home base over on the north side of the farm, so I would be buying Amy out of that as well."
He continued, "The big reason I want to get this done is for the family to have some closure. And I think Amy agrees with that."
Matt and Amy separated in 2014 and since that time, they have discussed on many occasions what it might look like if she were to leave the farm for good.
"Part of me thinks she wants me to make an offer to her, just to get the thing into motion. That would keep the farm operations in the family and really allow her to move on with her life," Matt said.
Although Matt was anxious for a clean break and for both of them to move on with their lives, leaving the farm for good has been difficult for Amy to come to terms with. "I'm very excited to see where my life goes, but definitely leaving the farm after 30 years has been not easy," she said.
A tense in-person meeting between Matt and Amy ensued during the episode, but still, nothing ended up getting resolved.
"We both own the property, we're both invested in it," Amy told Matt.
"I wish you wouldn't be so defensive," Matt replied.
"I wish you wouldn't be so pushy," Amy snapped back.
By the end of the episode, Matt announced that he had decided not to purchase the farm at that point in time. "The offer had some very specific time frames in it, and the deadline had come and gone, and the offer expired. So I decided not to live in limbo," he said. "I think Amy still has a lot of her own emotions to work through when it comes to leaving the farm."
Meanwhile, Amy shared, "I had a counter offer, but Matt pulled the offer because the offer didn't happen in the timeframe in the time that Matt wanted it to happen."
Does Zach Roloff want to take over Amy's half of the farm?
Plot twist! Could Matt and Amy's son, Zach, be interested in the farm? In a preview trailer for Season 21 of LPBW, Zach appeared to toy with the idea of taking over Amy's half of the farm. "I would just buy my mom out, I would not buy my mom and my dad out," he told Tori, to which she replied, "Oh, that just stresses me out."
It looks like fans will just have to keep tuning in to see whether Matt ultimately buys out Amy's half of the farm — or whether one of their children steps up to do so instead. Watch Little People, Big World on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on TLC.
