Family farm Little People, Big World for sale for $4 million

It’s the end of an era for the stars of the long-running TLC series Little People, Big World, who have officially listed their long-running family farm in Oregon for $4 million.

Matt Roloff, the family patriarch, took to social media on Thursday night to make the announcement.

“I want to make sure you all hear the big news directly from me,” Matt, 60, wrote in an Instagram caption. “All @rolofffarms have brought me and our family great joy over the past 30+ years! Today 16 hectares of farms [out of the] 109 acres are for sale including our original family home and bright red barn. It’s a bit scary, but mostly exciting… it’s time to move on to the next season of life.”

The 100-year-old farm, considered an “extremely rare” property, was owned by just three families at that time.

The 5,300 square foot space features five bedrooms, five full baths and a powder room on the main level. There are also double offices, dubbed “Zoom Rooms,” for the best remote working experience.

In addition, there is a six-car garage, an unfinished basement that could be used as a home gym, and there is a large bonus room on the second level.

Outdoor features include multiple entertaining areas, an outdoor pool, and an expansive deck that extends from the great room.

Also included for sale is a 3,500 square foot classic red and white barn that has been used as an office for hosting the annual Roloff Pumpkin Patch Festival. The barn also has a studio apartment with its own entrance.

Located 15 miles west of Portland in Hillsboro, the land features a farm stand/gift shop and seven installations – including a full-size pirate ship, a western town and a German-inspired medieval castle, all connected by a network of pathways and bridges it in the listing.

“I have devoted much of my adult life to creating an imaginative, adventurous environment for my family,” Matt Roloff said in a statement. “I have decided that the time is right, after more than 30 wonderful years, to hand over the reins to the next owners of this magnificent property to put down their own roots and watch them grow.”

The Roloffs originally bought the home in 1990 for $185,000. If Matt comes anywhere near the asking price, he’ll walk away with a hefty profit.

Luxe Forbes Global Properties’ Julie Martin holds the listing.

“The old adage location, location, location has been replaced with location, location, lifestyle,” Martin said. “In a post-pandemic era, home buyers are looking for space, privacy and security. That is exactly what you will find at Roloff Farm.”

“Little People Big World” aired its first show on March 4, 2006, documenting the life of Matt and Amy Roloff, who were four feet tall and then married, as they faced a variety of challenges in raising their four children stood: twins Jeremy and Zach and younger siblings Molly and Jacob.

All of her children have since married and had children of their own.

Matt and Amy divorced in 2016 after 29 years of marriage. He became the sole owner of the farm after Amy sold her interest in the farm in 2019 for just $667,000.
