In recent news, his ownership over Roloff Farms has become a touchy subject. In a recent episode of LPBW, Matt and his adult sons have butted heads over placing a portion of the farm up for sale.

Part of the farm is currently up for grabs at $4 million. Matt has become increasingly upset at his children, mistakenly believing that they would keep the farm in the family.

"A lot of people say that I told the kids they would inherit this property," Matt discusses in a confessional, per The Sun. "I never said anybody would inherit it. I always said that hopefully, we could keep this as a legacy."

He's even gone so far as to say that his children have become "a bunch of little monsters."

Keep up with the ongoing real estate family drama on Little People, Big World. New episodes air Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on TLC.
