Cars line the country roads and hordes of visitors queue up for Jeremy Clarkson’s reopened farm shop after local fury over congestion chaos in the quiet Cotswolds. 

Jeremy Clarkson’s Diddly Squat Farm is back up and running ahead of series 2 of the Amazon show with many braving the wet weather to snap-up ‘cow juice’ and ‘expensive’ Brussels sprouts.  

Before Christmas, fans caused chaos as they lined the grass verges to flock to the popular farm shop in Chadlington on the last Saturday before Christmas.

The shop’s car park was described as a ‘sea of mud’ as a results of the poor weather and the high number of vehicles with one visitor suggesting the shop should change it’s name to Diddly Squelch. 

It has been closed for a few months after West Oxfordshire District Council said the wrong type of material had been used in the roof tiles. 

Now up and running, fans enjoyed buying products from the 61-year-old’s shop, Diddly Squat and parked along a road leading to the farm in the Cotswolds.

Mr Clarkson wasn’t there for the reopening as he was filming the Grand Tour but many fans braved the muddy conditions to visit the farm near Chipping Norton. 

He bought the land in 2008 and the show follows his highs and lows of tackling the 1,000 acre working farm. 

Fans were delighted with the reopening of the new shop, which has also launched two businesses ‘Curdle Hill Juice’ and ‘Curdle Hill Wholesale’.

John Goodall who popped in for some of Clarkson’s cow juice, said: ‘Felt a bit bad about eating some of the cast, but they did taste delicious.’

Roy, who was out working in the Cotswolds, said: ‘The milk is gorgeous and the pork wasabi sausages with freshly smoked garlic is dish delish! Thanks Jezza, highly recommend.’

Last month, the ex-Top Gear host faced a considerable backlash among locals over his plans to expand his farm, with more than 50 objections registered with the council. Pictured: Clarkson on the farm

In January, the ex-Top Gear host faced a considerable backlash among locals over his plans to expand his farm, with more than 50 objections registered with the council. 

The plans were rejected, which Mr Clarkson called a ‘very bad day for farming’. 

Many voiced fears over increased traffic in the village if the café and a 70-space car park was approved. 

The TV presenter had hoped to convert a lambing shed built in 2020 after buying a new flock of sheep to expand the farm business. It has now been merged with another local farmer’s flock.

Documents state that the building has since been used, without planning permission, as a cafe and a bar area.
