Jeremy Clarkson may have lived on his farm for a decade, but the decision to try his hand at running the farm remains a new adventure for the presenter and writer. Along with his girlfriend, Lisa Hogan, the former Top Gear star has been learning all the tricks of the trade and has been documenting it via his popular show on Amazon Prime, Clarkson's Farm.
The series has gone down a treat with viewers over the years, something that Jeremy himself branded a surprise. Taking to Twitter, he said: "I'm genuinely amazed at the response to Clarkson's Farm. Thank you all so much for your kind words." Excited for season three? Currently, the TV star is filming the latest instalment, with production set to wrap in October, so hopefully the wait for new episodes won't be too long.
The popularity of the programme has naturally got audiences wondering about the farm's location and whether they can visit. Intrigued to know more? Here's what we know…
Where is Jeremy Clarkson's farm?
Jeremy and Lisa's farm, which they've named Diddly Squat Farm, is based in Chipping Norton in the Cotswolds in Oxfordshire. The pair decided to leave the hustle and bustle of city life to focus on their time in the country during the height of the pandemic. The show sees the couple do their best to learn all about the logistics of running a farm from local farmers and agricultural experts, including local resident Kaleb Cooper.
Can people visit Jeremy Clarkson's farm?
Yes! Lisa and Jeremy also run the Diddly Squat Farm Shop which is open to customers who fancy buying local produce from the famous duo. However, it can get very busy. In 2021, it was reported that crowds of people attempted to visit the farm shop on one particular weekend – prompting police to be called on sight to manage the traffic congestion.
What has Jeremy Clarkson said about his time on the farm?
To celebrate the release of Clarkson's Farm, Jeremy and Lisa gave an exclusive interview with HELLO! in which they discussed their time filming the programme and what made them choose country life.
Starring on our Spotlight cover in June 2021, Jeremy told HELLO!: "I've actually lived on the farm for many years, we had it for all sorts of inheritance tax reasons, but I was very busy with writing newspaper columns, there was Top Gear to start with and then latterly The Grand Tour, as well as other projects and shows.
"The farm made no money, it didn't cost any money, it was just a nice thing to have. It was run by a chap from the village who was a farmer, and then when he was retiring, I suddenly thought, 'I can do that.'"
Lisa added: "You know what, it took a little bit of time to settle into. We were both a bit anxious about getting COVID and what would happen if we did, so there was that anxiety. But we got into a routine pretty quickly."
