Jeremy Clarkson's Diddly Squat Farm moves to Amazon Fresh

Jeremy Clarkson's Diddly Squat Farm Shop in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire has become a sought-after tourist destination, attracting thousands of fans of the Amazon Prime series, "Clarkson's Farm".

The shop's popularity has led to lengthy queues for those wishing to visit the charming Cotswolds location.

Fans of the show seeking to experience Diddly Squat's offerings now have a convenient alternative. Amazon now offers a selection of Clarkson's farm-fresh produce and products created from it. This includes homegrown piccalilli, hand-cut crisps made from the farm's potatoes and honey from their beehives.

Mr. Clarkson has been involved in ongoing disputes with the West Oxfordshire District Council planning authority regarding the farm's expansion in Chadlington. In a February column for The Sun, he expressed frustration over denied planning permission to convert an existing structure into a restaurant:

"I came home and asked for planning permission to turn a building that was already there into a restaurant."

Mr. Clarkson has also publicly criticised council planning officials, accusing them of obstruction. In his column, he took specific issue with being denied permission to sell farming books.

A West Oxfordshire District Council spokesman commented to the Oxford Mail: "As with any other planning authority, we have a legal responsibility to make sure that planning laws and policies are followed correctly by everyone. 

"We have worked with the owners and planning agents of Diddly Squat Farm over many years and our aim is always to reach a positive outcome where the business can operate within those planning laws."
