Clarkson’s Farm series three FIRST LOOK: Jeremy, Kaleb and the Diddly Squat gang at are joined by new arrivals as the release date for the show is finally revealed

The new hotly-anticipated third series of Clarkson’s Farm finally has a release date.

It has been revealed that the new season of the Prime Video original mini-series – which follows Jeremy Clarkson’s foray into the unpredictable world of British farming – will launch worldwide on May 3 on the streaming platform.

First look images show the TV personality, 63, reunite with his farming sidekick and Cotswolds native Kaleb Cooper, Gerald Cooper, and Cheerful Charlie Ireland, as well as his girlfriend Lisa and the rest of the Diddly Squat gang.

As well as some recognisable faces, the series will also introduce some new ones, as Jeremy welcomes a drove of pigs to his Chadlington farm as he takes on another new challenge and enters into the world of pig farming.

Audiences can expect more authentic and unexpected trials and tribulations as Jeremy and his band of farmers take on the latest task, after previously welcoming a herd of cows and a colony of bees to make his ‘bee juice’ honey.

The third series of Clarkson’s Farm finds Diddly Squat facing some seriously daunting challenges. 

The crops are failing in the severe hot weather, inflation has driven prices of supplies sky high, dreams for the beloved restaurant are dashed and now the farm shop also faces closure.

Jeremy urgently needs to come up with creative new ways of making ends meet, so hatches a plan to turn a profit from hundreds of acres of unfarmed land – thick woodland and hedgerows that make up half of Diddly Squat. 

This triggers an avalanche of Clarkson-crafted schemes, involving everything from goats and pigs to mushrooms, nettles and deer.

The new arrives to Diddly Squat, which puts Kaleb’s nose out of joint – as well as the returning characters all working to help Jeremy’s farming ambitions come to fruition.

Production has also commenced on a fourth series of the show.

It come after fans of the  Diddly Squat Farm shop have been left devastated after finding out the store will be closed until March.

The farm, which opened in 2020, announced on Facebook it will shut its doors for the next few months while adding that products will still be available to buy online.

It came as Jeremy launched a planning battle having submitted new proposals for an ‘urgent’ storage barn at the farm in Chipping Norton.

Jeremy was last year forced to close his restaurant on Diddly Squat Farm after being served with an enforcement notice from the local council – with residents claiming the establishment was causing heavy traffic. 

Devastated fans have taken to social media to share their disappointment at the shop’s closure. One wrote: ‘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. I guess I will have to take another holiday.’

Another added: ‘Seriously. First time I went it was closed now flying over again end of February and it’s closed again.’

A third said: ‘I’m so gutted.’ 

A fourth wrote: ‘Glad I swung by at the weekend to pick up some spuds. And, may I say, what delicious potatoes they are.’  

Jeremy launched another planning battle this week after submitting new proposals for an ‘urgent’ storage barn at his Diddly Squat farm.

The former Top Gear host has filed fresh plans to build a huge 118ft long by 59ft wide barn to store grain at the site near Chadlington, Oxfordshire.

Jeremy says the farm has an ‘urgent need for the additional storage’ and that the barn’s absence was significantly impacting the price he could get for selling his produce.

It will be the eleventh application the Grand Tour host has lodged with West Oxfordshire District Council since he bought 1,000-acre farm in 2008.

Locals have previously been left enraged by his expansion plans with the council rejecting applications to open a restaurant, build a pickle ball court and even lay out a simple farm track to a converted barn.

Only last week his latest bid was thrown out when he was told he could not plant a row of trees around a temporary car park on his 1,000-acre farm that has become a popular tourist attraction.
