In PEOPLE's exclusive look at the TLC hit's new season, Zach Roloff isn't on the same page as his father Matt Roloff — and girlfriend Caryn Chandler — when it comes to the future of Roloff Farms. Both Zach, 31, and Matt, 60, address the ongoing issue in separate confessionals. "The temper is pretty high between my dad and me and Caryn," says Zach as Matt later adds, "After the farm deal fell apart, there's been some tension between us." Later, Matt has to make some tough decisions about the farm after a fire breaks out. "I've been going back and forth about exactly what to do with the north side of the farm," he says. "This process has been filled with some emotions and anger. But now, I've got this new plan. If it plays out the way that I hope it does, I think life on the farm is going to change forever."
