With series three currently being filmed and a second viewing of the last instalment of Clarkson’s Farm, some viewers might wonder how the Top Gear presenter ever came about owning a farm.
Watching the Prime Video series it’s clear to see that Clarkson, although gaining some knowledge over the last two years has little knowledge of farming and is constantly being berated by everyone’s favourite farmer Kaleb, but how did Clarkson ever come to running the now named Diddly Squat Farm?
Speaking to LADBible Clarkson discussed how he ended up with a 1,000-acre farm in the Cotswolds. He said: “I mean, the truth of the matter was that land almost never comes up for sale round here,” he told LADbible.
“And 2008 was the big financial crash, and this came up for sale, and I just thought, ‘Nobody’s making more land, so it’s as well to buy it.’ And it was going, nobody would call it cheap, but cheaper than you’d imagine.”

Clarkson was asked about the price of land in the area replying: “Dunno, 11,000, 12,000 an acre around here.
“So many people are moving out from London – but it was a lot, lot, lot, lot, lot less then. So I just thought, may as well get it.”
There you have it. And, it seems to have turned out for the best. Over a decade after buying the farm, Clarkson is working the farm and as he said at the end of the first season it seems to be the happiest he’s ever been.
We are just wondering what he’ll do with his third series of the popular Amazon Prime show Video show? Maybe Alpacas? We’d go on a walk with Clarkson and a train of Alpacas in the Cotswolds.
