Clarkson's Farm season 2: What is the release date? Is Kaleb back? Everything you need to know about Diddly Squat Farm
Jeremy Clarkson reopens the doors to Diddly Squat for Clarkson's Farm season 2 on Prime Video. Get updated on the release date and more.
Clarkson's Farm was the surprise TV hit of 2021, turning motoring journalist and the country’s most unlikely farmer, Jeremy Clarkson, into the new face of British agriculture.
Previously known for shouting out of supercars on Top Gear and The Grand Tour, Clarkson is now just as likely to get asked about sheep shearing and crop rotation as he is the horsepower of the latest Ferrari.
The series won critical acclaim, earned Clarkson and his agricultural advisor Kaleb Cooper recognition at the British Farming Awards and Prime Video quickly signed up the Diddly Squat team for a season 2.

What is the Clarkson's Farm season 2 release date?
Clarkson's Farm season 2 doesn’t currently have a confirmed release date on Amazon Prime.
Season 1 was released in June 2021 and because the second season is expected to follow a similar pattern following the presenter across a farming year, we can probably look forward to seeing Clarkson back on the tractor in summer 2022.
As soon as Prime Video confirms the season 2 launch date, we’ll let you know.
What will happen in Clarkson's Farm season 2?
Jeremy Clarkson will be letting the cameras follow his second year on Diddy Squat Farm as he aims to diversify and expand into new areas.
Fan favourite Kaleb Cooper will be back on his tractor, keeping a watchful eye on Clarkson. Kaleb and Clarkson will be joined again by stone wall favourite Gerald, ‘Cheerful’ Charlie and Clarkson’s wife and Diddly Squat shopkeeper Lisa Hogan.
Prime Video have described the series as an "unfiltered love letter to farming".
"We are delighted to be joining the team for another year-in-the-life of Diddly Squat, and wish Kaleb and farmers across the country luck as Mother Nature continues to take revenge on Jeremy," said Amazon Studios head of UK Originals Dan Grabiner.
First look at Clarkson's Farm season 2
Clarkson and Kaleb announced season 2 with a short video from the farm. They’ve also released some early pictures of the Diddly Squat crew reunited and back in action.
Fans can also keep updated on action on the farm on Clarkson and Kaleb’s Instagram accounts, where they frequently post amusing glimpses behind the scenes on the show and their day-to-day lives in Chipping Norton.
What is Clarkson's Farm about?
The first series of Clarkson’s Farm followed an intense, backbreaking and frequently hilarious year in the life of Britain’s most unlikely farmer, Jeremy Clarkson.
Clarkson, best known for travelling the world and shouting in supercars, turned his hand to a career in agriculture after buying a 1,000-acre farm in Chipping Norton.
In season one, viewers watched as Clarkson battled the worst farming weather in decades, disobedient animals, unresponsive crops, and an unexpected pandemic.
Clarkson became a conservationist, scientist, shepherd, shopkeeper, midwife, engineer, accountant, and tractor driver as he dived headfirst into his new occupation, learning about the adversity and challenges facing the modern farmer.
Taking the Grand Tour presenter out of his comfort zone, the series surprised critics and viewers as Clarkson took farming to his heart and became an advocate for the British farming industry.

Clarkson and Kaleb win farming award
It wasn't just TV fans who were won over by Clarkson’s Farm. The farming community were also impressed by the work Clarkson and his helper Kaleb Cooper did to raise the profile of British agriculture.
At the 2021 British Farming Award, the pair were recognised by 700 peers at Birmingham’s National Conference Centre.
Suited and booted, the guys arrived in style in a silver Lamborghini, with Kaleb rocking a brand-new haircut for the occasion.
After receiving a round of tumultuous applause from the room, both men were overwhelmed and thankful for the incredible recognition and support from the farming community.
Clarkson said: "Kaleb I couldn’t have done this without you, you are the star of the show (apart from Gerald) but what was great and I’m sure everyone in the room would say the same thing, every farm has a Gerald, every farm has a Charlie, every farm has a Kevin, every farm has an Ellen, every farm has a landowner and every farm has a Kaleb."
Can you visit Diddly Squat Farm?
The Diddly Squat Farm Shop is open for business online and open to the public.
On their website, they describe the store, in typical Clarkson fashion, as a “small barn full of good, no-nonsense things you’ll like. We do not, for example, sell kale”.
Everything sold, which includes ‘cow juice’, fudge, jams and oils is produced by Clarkson’s farm or other nearby businesses in the Cotswolds.
The Chipping Norton store is open from 9.30am to 4.30pm, Thursday to Sunday. You can find out more or order produce on the Diddly Squat website.

"There's simply no money in sheep farming. I’ve owned cars that have depreciated less. Literally, you can lose more money on sheep than cars, it’s just a nightmare."
