Amy was born with achondroplasia, a condition where the growth of one’s bones and cartilages are stunted. The condition leads to shorter limbs and a smaller body compared to the size and proportion of the skull. She graduated from Central Michigan University, and would later meet her partner both in love and business, Matt Roloff. They met at a Little People of America Convention in 1987 and then married later in the same year. Three years later, the couple bought a farmhouse sitting on 34-acres of land in Helvetia, Oregon, which they then established as Roloff Farm, working on the place that would soon become the location of the television show “Little People, Big World”. The TLC-produced show focused on the family’s daily life and how they manage to do various tasks despite their disabilities. It became quite popular and helped the family improve the farm even further, significantly increasing their net worth. Now the farm has an average of 30,000 visitors per year, even with limitations on months allowed for visitation. The show continued to air in the coming years, also focusing on the couple’s children. The family has had its share of drama, and even encountered various problems and threats throughout the course of their many TV seasons.

The show has received its share of criticisms, as some people believe the family was just creating dramas to fuel viewership and help the ratings of the show, which is a prevalent problem among many reality television shows at present. The couple had been talking about divorce for some time, and in 2014, the couple decided that they would have a trial separation, only staying together for the children. The fights between the two started after debating on whether or not they should keep or sell the farm. After 26 years of marriage, they decided to live in separate houses, though still on the same property. According to Amy and Matt, the separation was a mutual decision and there was no other party involved.

With “Little People, Big World” being filmed inside their homes, not much is left of privacy for the family. The couple has four children, all of whom were cast on the television show. Three of their children did not inherit Amy and Matt’s condition, only son Zachary has achondroplasia.
