LITTLE People Big World star Matt Roloff has revealed his son Jacob is looking after the family farm and the property is “in great hands” following a family feud over the land.
Posting to Instagram on the weekend, 60-year-old Matt informed his followers that he has been spending the last three weeks flying back and forth to Arizona, where he is caring for his mother.
In a lengthy caption, the TLC star paid tribute to “positive people”, and mentioned that he had left the family farm “in great hands” with his son Jacob, 25, and his 26-year-old wife Isabel’s brother Nico.
Matt told his fans that he has made four trips in the last three weeks from his home in Oregon to Arizona after his dad Ron passed away.
However, he reassured that his mom “is doing great… all things considered.”
After Ron fell ill last month, the whole Roloff clan reunited to be by his bedside, despite the ongoing feud in the family.
It was the first time they all came together since Matt and his sons Zach and Jeremy, both 32, had a public fallout over the sale of their huge family farm in Oregon.
Matt later informed fans that Ron passed away aged 84 on July 31.
Providing an update on the Roloff family feud, an insider told The U.S. Sun: “Matt’s relationship with his sons still isn’t great, but they put their differences aside to be there for each other during this important moment.”
The source went on: “It was the first time the family has been together like that in quite some time and no doubt put a lot into perspective for them all – they know family comes first.”
Matt’s very public feud with his twin sons Zach and Jeremy began when they failed to reach a deal with their dad to buy a 16-acre portion of the family’s Oregon farm.
Instead, Matt listed the plot for sale privately with an asking price of $4M.
Both of his eldest sons were angered by their father’s decision, especially since they wanted to keep the property within the family.
Zach slammed the sale and called out his father for being a “bad grandparent” who does not “value his family.”
Since he and his wife Tori distanced themselves by moving to Washington, Jacob and Isabel have been taking a more hands-on role at the pumpkin farm.
Earlier this week, Matt posted a photo of their newborn son Mateo sitting on his knee while riding a tractor.
Matt said he was showing “the ropes” to his grandkid while getting ready for the upcoming pumpkin season.
Jeremy meanwhile has moved into a new $1.5M farmhouse with his wife Audrey and their three children, although their new home is just a seven-minute drive away from the Roloff residence.
