2023 is the tenth anniversary of the year I turned vegetarian.

And I’ve never really looked back.

Coincidentally, 2023 is also the year that the second season of Clarkson’s Farm came out and I won’t lie but I have always been a bit of a fan.

I think it probably comes from watching Top Gear as a kid but there’s something about Jeremy Clarkson that makes me laugh.

Unfortunately for me, Amazon’s hit show by no means shies away from the brutality of animal slaughter and it certainly opens your eyes to the reality of the farming industry in the UK.

Reacting to the latest season of the goings on at Diddly Squat Farm, some viewers have been left wanting to go vegetarian.

One viewer declared on Twitter: "Reckon Clarkson's Farm is the nail in the coffin to send me veggie."


Others suggested that the show had made them think twice about their consumption of animal products.

One tweeted: "After watching season 2 of Clarkson's Farm, I will only be buying meat from Local butchers from now on.

“The big supermarkets are still buying cheaper EU meat and killing the lively hoods of British farmers."

I think if I hadn’t cut meat out of my diet, I probably would be thinking the same thing.

But I’ve come to the conclusion that the raw take on the meat industry in Clarkson’s Farm is not necessarily a bad thing.

It shows what goes on behind closed doors and this is the reality of where our food comes from.

In the second season of the show, Mr Clarkson has tired of the unpredictability of farming sheep and instead opts for the supposedly easier option of cows.

With this venture, the former Top Gear star’s intentions become clear from the start when he submits an application to West Oxfordshire District Council for an on-site restaurant based around premium Diddly Squat beef.

This certainly provides good entertainment, but more so because of a newly ignited spat with the council rather than anything else.

That said Mr Clarkson’s attachment to his animals does come clear throughout the course of the series and he develops a particular fondness of a cream-coloured cow called ‘Peppa’.

Season two is no disappointment after the success of season one and I would recommend watching it, no matter your dietary requirements!

The likeable characters of Diddly Squat helpers Kaleb, Gerald and cheerful Charlie are back for season two as well as his girlfriend Lisa.

It makes for easy watching and at the end of the day that is what Mr Clarkson’s TV is all about!
