Matt Roloff and Son Zach Roloff’s Feud Over Property
Negotiations over the sale of the property erupted in the season 23 premiere, which resulted in Zach walking away from the bargaining table and saying the negotiations with his father were a “toxic situation.”
In announcing the property being up for sale, Matt wrote, “My ultimate hope was that the entire Roloff Farms property would stay in our family for generations to come. Keeping that dream alive at this point was just not meant to be.”
“My twin boys decided not to consider working together toward a possible joint sale,” he added.
“Based on that, turning the big 60 in my cranky old body, the continuing maintenance/demands of the farm — the difficult decision was made so I could take steps toward my retirement goals,” he continued.
Zach disagreed with his characterization of the negotiations, calling it a “shocking new low of cowardice and manipulation” in comment on his dad’s Instagram post.
“This post is extremely misguided and false. My dad is manipulating the narrative right before the season comes out,” the father of three said. “Once again, like he has for most of his life, [he is] not taking responsibility for his own actions and blaming others. Dragging the family drama that he created and then manipulate the fanbase to make himself come out OK [sic].”
