'LPBW' Star Zach Roloff Ignores Father Matt on Father's Day Due to Family Drama
A problematic Father's Day for Roloff. Zach Roloff snubbed his father, Matt Roloff, on the holiday despite their conflict over the LPBW patriarch selling a chunk of Roloff Farms rather than passing it on to him.
Zach, 32, was completely silent on Sunday, June 19, and did not post anything on his social media profiles. Tori Roloff, his wife, celebrated the holiday with her wonderful husband and her own father.
"Daddin' so hard this Father's Day," the 31-year-old photographer captioned a snap of the "festivities," which included Zach pushing all three of their children outside in a stroller. The five-person family appeared to have spent the day hiking. Tori also uploaded a photo from her and Zach's 2015 wedding in which she and her father were dancing, with the remark, "I love my dad."
Zach, who recently went to the ER after a nasty fall, said he was "offended" his father Matt Roloff wouldn't sell him a plot of the farm in an episode from season 23 of the family's reality program, which was teased earlier in May.
"Knowing that we want to grow our family and that Jackson and Lilah are getting older, we want to be somewhere where we can see our family for a long time, and where we're at right now is not that place," Zach confessed. "I believe the farm would be an ideal environment for Jackson and Lilah to grow up."

Matt listed 16 acres of the north half of Roloff Farms for sale before to the season 23 launch of the show that has captured all of the drama. "The cats are out of the bag." "I want to make sure you all hear the big news directly from me," he said in the description of an Instagram post from May 2022 that included a photo of the farm with a "for sale" sign.
Nevertheless, this was the exact parcel of property that Zach had been looking to buy for his own family.
"The north side of the property features my favorite areas of the land, like Jackson and me really enjoy playing in the forest, the creek area, and the pond," Zach, who welcomed his third child, son Josiah Luke, with Tori, in April 2022, added. "Those are some of our favorite aspects."
For his part, Matt has his own perspective on why discussions fell apart in the season 22 finale.
"When Zach and I eventually sat together, we were really in very opposite camps about what type of deal could go on," Matt remarked at the time during a confessional. "Zach walked in hot. He didn't come in to bargain. He came in because there was a desire."
Despite the father-son feud, the father-son team previously reconnected in May for Zach's son Jackson's fifth birthday celebration.
"Babies and birthdays and everything create occasions to bring everyone together," Zach said at the time to Entertainment Tonight. "A lot of damaged feelings have been caused by everyone. We're not blameless in any of this."
"We're family, and we've talked about it since everything transpired on social media," he added. "We've progressed."
