Recently, fans were shocked by some Little People, Big World news. Zach Roloff revealed to his mom and dad that he and his wife Tori want to buy the family farm. For some context: Amy and Matt Roloff have owned the family farm for 30 years before they got divorced back in 2016. The farm holds a lot of history and sentimental value: Jeremy, Zach, Molly, and Jacob were all raised on the farm. So to Zach to announce these plans is pretty unexpected.
In an exclusive sneak peek ahead of tonight's season finale of Little People, Big World on PEOPLE, Zach stated, "I'm a little nervous to tell my mom I want to buy the farm, because I'm not sure what her reaction will be." He added, "One thing Tori and me talked about, we've talked about maybe we can move in here. Maybe we can be the ones that take over the farm, buy the place. Maybe this could be an option for Tori and I."
Amy's reaction? Ultimately, she was "shocked," saying, "I think I was shocked that I couldn't even respond. It was definitely a surprise. I didn't know he was thinking about that. I know Jeremy has been thinking about it for quite some time. It suddenly changes how Matt and I look at this property."
So, did Zach Roloff buy the family farm?
It doesn't appear that any decision about ownership over the family farm have been made yet. Zach Roloff hasn't purchased the family farm, and it'll take awhile before any kind of property transaction like that is solidified. Especially since it doesn't seem like neither Jeremy nor Zach possess any kind of legal ownership. Matt Roloff is believed to own most of the property. To make things more complicated, it was always assumed that the other twin, Jeremy, would potentially be the one who takes ownership of the family farm, not Zach.
Even Zach stated, "Everyone's always assumed that Jeremy would be the one taking over the farm, including myself. And that's just because I think I've always deferred to him when it came to the farm. As I've gotten older and become a father, I've also spent more and more time working on the farm, and that has helped me become more assertive." And although Zach always felt like Jeremy would be the one to one day own the farm, he feels like he needs to put his and his family's needs first.
"Jeremy's always wanted the farm or he's always said he wanted the farm. He's always had that desire. And I respect that and everything, I've always respected Jeremy, I've always wanted to back him up. But, you know, I have to think about what's good for my family right now."
And it does seem like Matt could be on board with Zach buying the farm, even if Amy isn't. "I'm really excited to show Zach and Amy all the progress we've made fixing up the farmhouse. Zach let me know earlier that him and Tori are interested in buying the farmhouse. So, I know Zach would like to let Amy know his thoughts for the future," Matt said on TLC's Instagram account 10 hours ago.
It looks like we'll have to tune in to the next season of Little People, Big World to find out what happens with the farm. What a cliffhanger! According to CinemaBlend, new episodes should be coming soon, although the season premiere date is currently up in the air.
