“For those docu-ensembles, especially if they’re nobodies, per episode it ranges from low-end, like $1,500 an episode, to $3,000 at the high end,” Business Insider reported. “And then after three years of success, it can go up to $7,000 to $10,000 an episode. After that, you start moving into the Kardashian level.”

Amy Roloff Was a Previous Co-Owner of Roloff Farms
Amy sold the majority of her stake in Roloff Farms to ex-husband Matt in 2019. In December 2019, Amy shared on her Instagram Stories that she was officially moving from the farm, three years after her divorce. Her new home, which she shares with her husband Chris Marek, is a 15-minute drive from the farm.
According to The Sun, in 2020, Matt purchased the remaining acres from his ex for $975,000.
In May 2022, Matt announced that he was putting a portion of Roloff Farms up for sale for $4 million. “Well the cats out of the bag. I want to make sure You all hear the big news directly from me,” he wrote via Instagram on May 12. “All of @rolofffarms has brought me and our family great joy for the past 30+ years! Today 16 acres of the farms 109 acres go up for sale including our original family home and bright red barn. It’s a tiny bit scary but mostly exciting. ….its time to move toward the next season of life.”
News broke in October that the family’s longtime house on Roloff Farms would instead be converted to a rental property. Only one day prior, In Touch confirmed that Matt removed the $4 million sale listing from major realty websites.
“A few weeks ago, I promised everyone a big news announcement … so here goes … When I put the small side of the farm up for sale, I knew large deals like that take a much longer time (i.e. 6-12 months) to complete with no guarantees,” the dad of four shared via Instagram on October 22. “What I didn’t expect was how many new business partners and networking connections I would make in the process.”
