    Little People, Big World fans likely know that Caryn has been involved with Roloff Farms for quite some time. She reportedly worked her way up to being the farm manager and, as Matt says, is pivotal to making sure things run smoothly. "Caryn is instrumental in running pumpkin season, she's run it for 10 years," Matt Roloff once explained during a LPBW episode. "I enjoy her immensely. Whether we're working or whether we’re relaxing, we have a great time together."

    Obviously, Matt was married to Amy during the time he started working with Caryn who was also married at the time.

    As one might imagine, a number of Roloff fans have wondered if Matt cheated on Amy with Caryn as they had an employer-employee relationship (well, technically, they still kinda do) prior to getting romantically involved. Though he's denied it, Matt's 2007 book, Little People, Big Values, had some people thinking the reality star hinted at an infidelity. "While Amy puts commitments at or near the top of her list, I would put it further down," Matt Roloff confessed in his book. "Amy tends to be more of a committed-to-a-fault kind of person, while I see most commitments -- with some very notable exceptions -- as flexible and negotiable."

    Obviously, that doesn't automatically implicate Matt, but still raises questions (and a few eyebrows).

    It ain't official until it's on social media! Matt Roloff confirmed his relationship with Caryn back in March 2017 after sharing a photo of the duo at Zach and Tori's baby shower -- prompting fans to ask if the two were an item. "Yes, I've started dating Caryn," he replied.

    Matt and Amy's son Zach seemed a bit uncomfortable about his dad's new girlfriend in the past. "Caryn's part of the Roloff farm operation. As far as their relationship goes. I don't have anything to say about it," he once said during an LPBW episode. "My parents are divorced, so yeah."

    "It is hard for me to say, 'Yeah, go ahead and invite Caryn,' because it is someone I've known for a long time," Amy Roloff once confessed about Caryn Chandler on Little People, Big World. "Matt's worked with her for many, many years, and that will always hurt to some degree, but it's something that I will have to be an adult about it. It doesn't mean I have to embrace it and accept it personally ... "

    Needless to say, things between Caryn and Amy aren't super stellar and should be labeled a work in progress -- and that's putting it nicely.

    It's not uncommon to see Matt soaking up some sun during the winter months. The reality star and Caryn spend a considerable amount of time in Arizona, the state Matt's girlfriend is proud to call home. It's pretty safe to assume this duo hangs out with Caryn's family (she has two children from a previous marriage) while they're in town.

    Say what?? During the recent season of Little People, Big World, Matt Roloff hinted he might get rid of Roloff Farms if Amy doesn't start accepting Caryn. ".... We were talking about if Amy would sell out the farm, or should I build on the farm," Matt said to Caryn on the show. "But the biggest thing is if I can build here and know that one day maybe I can convince you to move in with me and live on the farm. "But if she's never going to accept, or that's never a possibility then we have to start getting rid of this farm.
