Amy Roloff has moved on from the farm and into her new home, which she will share with her fiance Chris Marek.
The TLC reality TV show Little People, Big World has been entertaining audiences since 2006 and the Roloff family has become almost a part of the lives of fans since then. They have gone through various challenges during their 20 seasons and finally, they are going to return with their latest one on September 29, 2020. The 21st season will be a bittersweet one as one of the prime members of the family moves away from what made them the beloved Roloffs in the first place.
Matt and Amy Roloff had started their journey with the Roloff farms after their marriage, which was an important part of both of their lives. Located around 15 miles west of Portland and just north of Hillsboro in the unincorporated community of Helvetia Oregon, this farm has been the backdrop for the family until now. However, in a recent statement from TLC, they have mentioned that the latest season will be very different.
"It’s the end of an era on Little People, Big World as Amy prepares to say goodbye to the farm for good. But while she’s officially moving off the farm, she still co-owns part of it with Matt, who is eager to get everything settled between them in terms of ownership. Meanwhile, Zach and Tori are experiencing the joys and challenges of parenthood with baby Lilah and Jackson, making sure both children are getting the care and attention they need. The new episodes also offer a glimpse into how the Roloff’s world is impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, from a quarantine birthday party to the stress of moving in the middle of a pandemic," the statement said, as per Oregon Live.
Matt Roloff hopes that the future of the farm would be taken forward by one of his sons, Zach or Jeremy. While Amy accepted a buyout from Matt, the future is still uncertain for the farm. It was only in February 2020 that she completely moved off the farm and moved into a house that she can share with her fiance, Chris Marek.
Meanwhile, the couple still owns a small part of the farm together and hope that one of their kids would buy it from them. Jeremy and Zach are the only ones who have "expressed interest in it," according to GoodHouseKeeping.
"The ultimate scenario for me is that the twins would take over the farm and work together … but nobody likes to run that pumpkin patch like I do," Matt said.
On the other hand, Amy said that she felt relief to get away from the farm. During her last month there, Matt had built a wall between their homes to create a separate life, which didn't sit well with his ex-wife. "Out with the old and in with the new, and this (the wall) is what this wall represents," he told Amy.
When Amy finally left, after those tension-filled months, it was obviously a relief. "This car of mine #fordescape I love and has been great, and still is, in helping me move and so much more! I’m a @ford girl true and true. Its so doing its job hauling all the things I’m taking from the farm house to my new house. And it’s back and forth and back and forth,” she captioned a photo on Instagram.
"And yes, I’m doing most of it myself – after 30 years – I’m going through everything and oh what memories come flooding my mind of a lot of things that went on in this house raising four kids," said the TLC star. "And I’m thankful I got to do it though it’s been hard and tough purging. Oh I’m sure I’ll be doing more once I get ‘stuff’ to my new house thinking ‘why did I pack this?'" she added.
“I’m thrilled to see some light at the end of this long journey of moving, purging, packing and moving into my new house. Woohoo!” said Amy. “Sometimes I don’t know whether to jump up and yell ‘Hooray’ or cry. I do know I feel relieved. More adventures to explore, plan for all the while being grateful," she said.
It looks like change is afoot on the Roloff Farms with the older generation likely to hand off their responsibilities to the newer one soon.
