Staff at Clarkson’s Farm have revealed what it is really like to work with celebrity boss Jeremy Clarkson.

The former Top Gear star originally purchased Diddly Squat Farm in Chadlington, Oxfordshire back in 2008.

Since the release of the Prime Video show Clarkson’s Farm in 2021, the location near Chipping Norton has become a hotspot for tourists.

The series has become globally popular after documenting day-to-day life on the farm and has led to the Diddly Squat Farm Shop being opened and selling produce from the farm.

Thousands of people have been visiting the spot this year following the release of season three in May and staff have been all hands on deck to cope with the demand.

One staff member who wished to remain anonymous took five minutes to chat with the Oxford Mail during a visit on a busy weekend.

“I’ve been working here well over a year and I do enjoy it to be honest because you meet completely different people from all over the world and all around the UK” they said.

“Jeremy and Caleb come up every now and then and chat with us and check that we’re alright.

“Jeremy is just really funny but he takes things seriously if we struggle with anything which is nice but he is just really funny and makes us feel comfortable.”
