With a second series of Clarkson’s Farm confirmed by Jeremy Clarkson and Kaleb Cooper, the team are hard at work building Diddly Squat into a profitable business.
In a recent video by The Sun, Jeremy shows us around the Chadlington-based farm, including a new greenhouse which is full of Carolina Reaper, the hottest chilli in the world. When walking the fence of part of his farm, he also realises that they’ve punctured a water pipe. He complains about the rules and regulations surrounding the animals and where they get their water with those behind the camera agreeing.
“When you pick up a bit of meat in a supermarket and it has got a little red tractor on it, it was produced in Britain.
“Buy it because some poor sod in the Peak District has been out rearing in the cold at 3am.”
“All right, it is 5p more to buy this meat with a red tractor, but I am getting better food and helping British farming.”
A lot of the video focuses on the new cows he has on his field, which have likely been powering his ‘cow juice’ product in his farm shop.
At the end of the video, Kaleb and Jeremy both complain about how expensive farms are now, and how no one would be able to afford to break into the industry and start farming to help the country. Jeremy says:
“Kaleb’s fantastic, but it worries me how he’ll ever be able to afford his own farm.
“He’s up against hedge fund managers now who don’t necessarily want to farm it.”
