Chipping Norton’s most famous farm, ‘Diddly Squat’ was given the go-ahead for a second series last month, and people have been excited about the news ever since. Jeremy Clarkson’s show on his 1,000-acre farm took Amazon Prime by storm as it guided us through the Grand Tour presenter’s first year in farming.
What a year it was! Clarkson highlighted many issues farmers have to go through, including the red tape and paperwork involved, which gave the nation a huge insight into modern-day farming.
In the second series, all our favourite people will be returning, such as Farm manager Kaleb Cooper, land agent Charlie Ireland (Cheerful Charlie) and stone wall builder Gerald Cooper.
Jeremy Clarkson’s Farm Shop proved popular with fans of the show, as thousands have visited the little village to enjoy his goods, as well as quirky produce such as his ‘bee juice’ and a ‘bollocks candle’ which, well, ‘smells like my bollocks’ according to the tin. Clarkson has added draught beers and more so that people can enjoy them.
The new season looks like Clarkson is setting himself new challenges within the world of farming with the addition of cows to his farm. Earlier this month, he took to his social channels to introduce them to his followers.
As well as the new cows, Clarkson has acquired some new pigs named Stephen (Fry) and Stephen (Hawking), which shows in the new series we are going to get to see Clarkson take on the world of cow and pig farming. As an ex-pig farmer, I look forward to seeing if Clarkson gets stuck into mucking out and all the other mucky jobs one can expect in the world of rearing animals.
Along with the usual harvest season, it seems like Clarkson and the team will be very busy in the new series of ‘Clarkson’s Farm’. We can’t wait to see what choatic scenes will be created!
There is no news on the release date of the new series as of yet, but we will keep our ears to the ground.
