Little People’s Jacob Roloff reveals thoughts on ‘owning’ a family farm after fans believe dad Matt will bequeath the estate to him
LITTLE People Big World star Jacob Roloff has spoken out amid rumors he will inherit the family farm from his father Matt Roloff.
The property was a point of contention in the famous family after Matt’s sons Zach and Jeremy tried and failed to buy a piece of the property.
Jacob, 26, has addressed rumors that he will be the heir to Roloff Farms.
The star took to social media to share a photo update on his planting progress.
The photo was taken in a large greenhouse and showed several people at work.
They dug holes, tilled the ground, and roamed the area.
There were all sorts of gardening tools including wheelbarrows, shovels, hoses, chicken wire and other essentials.
One commenter asked, “Is that on your dad’s farm or property that you have separately?”
Jacob replied, “I’m not a real estate owner and I have no prospect of becoming one.”
The former LPBW personality has been open about growing marijuana.
Fans asked about it in the comments, with one person writing: “Are you selling this? If you grow a lot of dope…unless you are [full-time] stoned, I can’t imagine using it for personal use.”
The reality TV personality wrote back: “It’s for personal use only. I smoked quite a bit daily for about a decade and haven’t bought weed in 3 years.
“I smoke a lot less these days and I can legally give an ounce to any Oregon resident over the age of 21, so I’m sharing freely. Sometimes people also donate to keep organic farming going.”
Jacob explained what he was doing in the photo in a long accompanying caption.
“My cousin Max and my old pal Nick helped me dig through the gravel and clay in the greenhouse for this year’s plants,” he began.
“The holes are about 2 feet wide and 2 feet deep. I fill it completely with compost and then raise it another 2 feet with some wood and fill it with last year’s potting soil and compost mix.”
Jacob further explained, “I’ll start filling them as soon as there’s a dry day and I can get a tractor to our compost pile, then grow some clover and buckwheat until transplant time.”
Back in 2022, news broke that Jacob moved into Matt’s $4 million farm along with his wife Isabel and their young son Mateo after the patriarch foreclosed on his two eldest sons amid the ongoing family feud over the land.
An insider exclusively told The US Sun in October that the family had moved into a fifth-wheel trailer home on private property next to the Roloff farm.
The source shared at the time, “Jacob and Isabel live full-time on the farm.”
“They used to rent a place and save on the farm.”
Five-wheeler motorhomes can range from $36,000 to $135,000 depending on size and features.
The source continued: “[Jacob and Isabel] live there to save money and help out on the farm.
“The rest of the family doesn’t mind because Matt and Caryn get along so well with them.”
Earlier this month, Jacob’s wife Isabel teased a major update on the future of Roloff Farms.
During an Instagram Q&A, a fan asked the reality star about her current living situation.
“I’m so excited to tell you guys about our move! Any guesses?” Isabel replied.
Her response suggested that she and Jacob could follow in the footsteps of twins Zach and Jeremy and uproot their family.
Zach, 32, and his wife Tori, 31, recently relocated to Battleground, Washington, while Jeremy and his wife Audrey, 31, live in Oregon.
Tensions have been brewing in the family ever since, with the 60-year-old patriarch also turning down Jeremy’s offer on the property.
Matt eventually put the farm up for sale in May, angering his sons who wanted to keep it in the family.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Matt asked for about $4 million to sell the “original family home and bright red barn.”
Zach responded by tearing his father apart, calling him a “bad grandparent” who “don’t value his family.”
However, Matt may have intended to sell the farm to his son, just not Zach or Jeremy.
In April, a source close to Matt told The Sun: “Matt would prefer Jacob and his wife Isabel to take over the farm, but he’s not sure if they’re on board at the moment.”
The insider continued, “He’s the youngest son but Matt knows Jacob has potential, they’re on the farm a lot and Matt thinks this is a good way to teach him a lot of things he needs to learn.”
