Small people, big world fans were surprised to hear that Amy Roloff’s husband, Chris Marek, was taking over the pumpkin patch tour at Roloff Farms, but Zach Roloff seems to be okay with the changing of the guard. There has been some serious tension at Roloff Farms since Matt Roloff refused to sell the land to his two sons. Now Zach chooses to distance himself from the property.
Chris officially joined the family when he married Amy on August 28, 2021, after they met at a Paint and Sip party a few years back. The two hit it off and Chris embraced Amy’s four children. For a few seasons, Small people, big world has witnessed Chris bond with Zach as he has supported his stepson at his weightlifting competitions along with many other ventures. Zach had given the green light to Amy, assuring her that she had chosen the right man when it came to Chris. The estate agent had also stepped up when it came to working on the family farm and seemed to really enjoy himself at times.
Zach Roloff is no longer on the farm
Zach was known to be a creature of habit, and while he wasn’t always up for working in the pumpkin patch, the father of three often found his happy place behind the wheel of the tractor, giving VIP tours of the family farm. In a section of Small people big world season 24, Zach was shown sitting with Amy as they discussed the future of the farm. The 60-year-old revealed that her ex-husband Matt Roloff reduced the number of carriage rides to three and that he had asked if Chris would also be interested in doing his own VIP ride.
Zach Roloff refuses to participate in the Farm Tour
Small people, big world fans could tell Chris was nervous but continued when he asked if Zach would take it personally if he took over the tours. Zach immediately replied, “no, dude.” The footballer said that Chris would meet some amazing people from all over the world. As TLC viewers well know, the tours of the farm have always been led by Zach and were very much considered his thing, but Chris noted how well Zach took the news and was thankful that he had his blessing.
It turns out that Zach was being truthful Small people, big world fans when he revealed in a confessional that he was a bit more upset than he let on. For Zach, the private tours were a good job, noting that it was fun while it lasted, but that part of his life was now over.
