It’s no secret that Jeremy Clarkson’s new show, Clarkson’s Farm, has become one of the most popular and highly praised shows on Amazon Prime Video ever.
Jeremy, with his family of farmers including Kaleb Cooper, Cheerful Charlie, and Gerald Cooper, seeks to build a successful farm on his land in the Cotswolds.
But it isn’t all plain sailing for The Grand Tour presenter, who quickly finds out there’s not a lot of money in farming, especially during a global pandemic.
So, Diddly Squat Farm Shop was created in 2020 and when Clarkson’s Farm launched, it became a tourist attraction to the public.
Jeremy’s farming shop has been an overwhelming success, with fans from all across the country gathering to buy some of his products and to meet the man himself.
But what are the opening hours of Diddly Squat Farm Shop? Well, the self-named “emporium of edible delights. And potatoes” has its opening times available to be viewed on its Facebook page and website, and where can you find it?
The farm shop has the following address:
5-12 Chipping Norton Rd
Unfortunately, though, it’s not open every day for you to peruse. Instead, its website says it’s open from Thursday to Sunday, from 9:30am until 4:30pm.
With that in mind, please don’t drive up earlier in the week, it will not be open and it’ll be a wasted journey.
The farm shop sells a number of products, including its own merchandise such as hats and bags with the company’s logo on it, but also farm produce which was made on Diddly Squat Farm and from its surrounding area. Bee Juice is a customer favourite, I hear.
Don’t have time to make it to the shop? And who would blame you, the traffic is awful. Well, in that case, go to its website instead and purchase online.
Welcome to Jeremy’s farm. It’s an idyllic spot, offering picturesque views across the Cotswolds, bustling hedgerows, woodlands and natural springs. Jeremy always liked the idea being a farmer. But, while he was barrelling around the world having more fun with cars than was entirely reasonable, it seemed obvious that the actual, you know, farming was much better left to someone else
Then one day he decided he would do the farming himself.
After all, how hard could it be?
Well . . .
Faced with suffocating red tape, biblical weather, local objections, a global pandemic and his own frankly staggering ignorance of how to ‘do farming’, Jeremy soon realises that turning the farm round is going to take more than splashing out on a massive tractor.
Fortunately, there’s help at hand from a large and (mostly) willing team including girlfriend Lisa, Kaleb the Tractor Driver, Cheerful Charlie, Ellen the Shepherd and Gerald, his Head of Security and Dry Stone Waller. Between them they enthusiastically cultivate crops, rear livestock and hens, keep bees, bottle spring water and open a farm shop. But profits remain elusive.
And yet while the farm may be called Diddly Squat for good reason, Jeremy soon begins to understand that it’s worth a whole lot more to him than pounds, shillings and pence . . .
