Jeremy Clarkson, 62, has had the country in giggles since he decided to take up farming alongside Kaleb Cooper and turn it into a successful Prime Video series. The Clarkson’s Farm star has shared the shocking story about a woman who he claimed “trespassed” on his farm, which resulted in her foot getting stuck in a hole and the former Top Gear presenter being sued!
It’s a constant frustration!
Jeremy and Kaleb gave an insight into life on Diddly Squat farm and the upcoming second season of Clarkson’s Farm to Ben and Georgie Ainslie on their Performance People podcast.
Host Ben spoke about an issue he had with cows, leaving Jeremy to show off his large signs which he is not allowed to put up for insurance reasons.
They read “free acupuncture” and “bull in the field (No red trousers)”.
Jeremy explained: “You can’t even put danger in the field because if a bull then attacks somebody and writes danger you are then accepting that you knew it was dangerous.
“Therefore you’re liable. So all you can write is bull in the field and let people make their own minds up.”
This led Jeremy to talk about a recent incident that happened on the farm that led to him being sued after a lady “trespassed” on his land.
He explained: “We had one that other day. That woman who put her croc into… You lift a gate post out when you open double gates so you can open both gates.
“We took it out and we were in and out all day long. And she was trespassing on the farm and somehow she put her foot into this hole and then bruised her leg.
“It was then ‘I’m suing you’. And there is nothing you can do.
“We were in and out and they just said I should have put the thing back in. I was like… f****g hell… so yeah, it’s a constant frustration.”
This is not the first time Jeremy has been hit with legal drama over angry neighbours upset with his controversial plans to build a restaurant on the farm.
Painting restorer Hamish Dewar called in lawyers last November to stop the former Top Gear host from transforming a lambing shed into an eatery with parking for 70 cars.
He feared it would turn the Cotswolds village of Chadlington, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty into a “Jeremy Clarkson theme park” – a total of 20 residents lodged objections.
Hamish said at the time: “I don’t understand why he’s stirring up controversy and antagonism right on his doorstep.
“These plans mean even more traffic, noise and light pollution in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
“The village is precious to everyone living in it. We don’t want a Jeremy Clarkson theme park and don’t understand why he’d want one.
“It’s not a personal thing and it’s not the village against Jeremy Clarkson – but people are worried.”
The Oxfordshire village has faced a surge in traffic since Clarkson’s Farm aired on Amazon Prime last year, which will only increase with the second season being released early next year.
Jeremy bought about a thousand acres in 2008, including Curdle Hill Farm and decided to farm the land himself in 2019 when the local villager retired.
The farm was renamed “Diddly Squat” by Jeremy to indicate its lack of productivity as diddly squat is slang for “the least amount”, “anything”, or “nothing”.
