It was business as usual when cars lined the verges and country roads and hordes of fans queued up to visit Jeremy Clarkson's reopened farm shop this weekend.

Scores of delighted admirers of the TV personality were back in force snapping up 'cow juice', jams and preserves, aprons and tea towels, coffee, T-shirts, and it seems overpriced veg.

Oxford Mail:

One customer, Tom Savage, said: "I can’t wait to taste your meat. And the sprouts [are] the most expensive I have ever payed for."

John Goodall who popped in for some of Clarkson's cow juice, said: "Felt a bit bad about eating some of the cast, but they did taste delicious."

Roy, who was out working in the Cotswolds, said: "The milk is gorgeous and the pork wasabi sausages with freshly smoked garlic is dish delish! Thanks Jezza, highly recommend."

Diddly Squat Farm Shop reopened last Thursday and even then there was a healthy queue for 9.30am on a grey morning.

The car park was full by 9.45am although fans were nearly outnumbered by film crew shooting season 2 of Clarkson’s Farm which uses the Chadlington site as a location.

Mr Clarkson did not appear as he was away filming his motoring show The Grand Tour.

The team announced the shop, which has also launched two businesses 'Curdle Hill Juice’ and ‘Curdle Hill Wholesale’, would be back after a two month closure while changes were made to the roof following complaints from West Oxfordshire District Council that the wrong material was used.

In January, the ex-Top Gear host's plans for a restaurant and a 70-space car park were refused by the council with more than 50 objections from locals registered.

Oxford Mail:

Mr Clarkson called it a 'very bad day for farming' and vowed to challenge the decision but villagers in Chadlington have expressed fears over increased traffic and speeding as well as concerns that the area was becoming "a Jeremy Clarkson's theme park".

Planning officers said the proposal was out of keeping with the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The TV presenter got permission to build a lambing shed in 2020 after buying a new flock of sheep to expand the farm business. But it was merged with another local farmer's flock.

Planning documents state that the building has since been used, without planning permission, as a cafe and a bar area.
