When Little People, Big World first premiered in 2006, it caught the attention of legions of viewers. The TLC show follows the Roloff family while also giving viewers a look at what life is like for a family with dwarfism.
Matt Roloff is the patriarch of the fam, and he’s got quite an interesting life to keep up with. Naturally, fans are always curious to learn more about him — including his net worth. Here’s what to know.
What is Matt Roloff’s net worth these days?
As of 2022, Matt has a net worth of $6 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Along with being a noteworthy reality TV star, Matt is also a farmer, author, motivational speaker, and businessman. It’s quite obvious that he stays busy with plenty of obligations. When he married his now ex-wife Amy Roloff in 1987, they likely had no clue they would eventually become two of the most well-known reality TV stars alive.
Over the course of their marriage, they welcomed four children into the world. Three of Matt’s kids were born of average height, while one of his sons (Zach) has achondroplasia.
Little People, Big World is obviously a huge reason why Matt has the net worth he has today. The show is one of the most popular TLC hits to date.
How did Matt Roloff make his money?

The farm is also obviously another money-making venture that takes up a lot of Matt’s time. Matt, who became the sole owner of the family farm in 2020, also successfully transitioned part of it into an amusement park. The amusement park comes fully packed with attractions and rides for other families to enjoy. According to In Touch, about 30,000 guests visit his property annually.
Matt has also written three books, the third of which is a children’s book: Against Tall Odds: Being a David in a Goliath World (1999); Little Family, Big Values: Lessons in Love, Respect and Understanding for Families of Any Size (2007); and Little Lucy, Big Race (2018).
