JEREMY Clarkson's popular Diddly Squat Farm Shop has announced a temporary closure.

The farm shop in Chipping Norton Road, Chadlington - which was opened by the former Top Gear presenter in 2020 and stars in Amazon Prime Video series Clarkson's Farm - announced via its Facebook page that the shop will be closed until Friday, March 1.

However, customers will still be able to buy products from its online store during this time. 

This announcement provoked various reactions from other users on the platform, with some people expressing upset and others complimenting the products that the shop sells.

One user said: “Seriously, the first time I went it was closed and now I am flying over again at the end of February and it's closed again."

Another user added: "Absolutely gutted you guys are shut, booked a holiday for a couple of days this week, from Lincoln to nearby to Diddly Squat Farm Shop to finally be able to visit."

Mr Clarkson has also recently submitted an application for a large 'urgent' new barn at the farm.

The fresh plans are for a new 36m long and 18m wide agricultural building at the site near Chadlington, Oxfordshire.

Planning documents state the farm has an "urgent need for additional storage" and that the barn's absence is significantly impacting the price obtained by Clarkson for his produce.

The application added: "The current grain store is not of an appropriate design for its purpose and in any case is too small to support the farm's arable operations which produces up to six different crops, with four main crops."

West Oxfordshire District Council's planning committee will consider the fresh application in due course.
