The former Top Gear star has come up with a clever way of making some extra cash

Jeremy Clarkson has come up with a clever new way to earn more money out of his Diddly Squat Farm venture.

The former Top Gear star has run the Oxfordshire farm since 2020, chronicling his journey in Amazon Prime series, Clarkson's Farm, but has now found another way to profit from the business.

The 64-year-old has announced he is going to sell wood from the farm’s trees to make cricket bats after discovering his 1000-acre farm space is perfect for growing the kind of willow used to make the sporting equipment.

The Who Wants to be a Millionaire host went on to reveal he “actively hated” the sport at school, admitting: “I’ve worked out how I can get my own back on these people. I'm going to take all of their money.”

Clarkson has been told his farm site had perfect bat willow specimens, so he’s been trying to grow them in one for more than a year.

Writing in The Sunday Times, Clarkson continued: “So stand by, cricketists. I'm going to hurt you, but not like you hurt me (at school).

Clarkson has a new idea for his farm


In another recent update about his farm, Clarkson admitted he was left "unbelievably sad" after disaster struck.

While filming the latest series of Clarkson's Farm, he and co-star Kaleb Cooper tried their hand at pig farming for the first time.

However, he admitted he'd never seen his wife Lisa Hogan "so upset" following the sheer number of losses they encountered after introducing the pigs to the farm.

He recalled: "I reckoned the pigs would provide something that’s sadly lacking in farming today: a bit of genuine happiness.

He told The Times: "Instead, it was almost unbelievably sad. I’ve never seen Lisa so upset. The film crew looked shell-shocked.

"We had a catastrophically high level of deaths and I was desperately worried we were doing something wrong, but it turned out we weren’t.

"It was just that pigs are bad mothers — the Sandy and Black particularly so. That’s why it’s a rare breed."

Elsewhere, things a little closer to home was a cause for concern for the presenter.

The Grand Tour star admitted he'd been left “consumed with fear” during his 64th birthday last week.

Clarkson confessed he thought Hogan was planning to put him in a care home as she tried to celebrate with him.

"She didn't. But the day is coming," he quipped, writing in his column for The Sun.
