Jeremy Clarkson has talked more about losing a pig on Diddly Squat Farm as England was hit by intense heat of around 40 degrees Celcius. Admitting that the heat was making things very difficult on the farm, he wrote about how things were changing in his latest column.
Already sparking controversy after admitting that one of his pigs had died from the heat, he fuelled the fire by writing more about this:
“One of my pigs died from heat exhaustion, my potatoes look like sultanas, and my springs are drying up, which means that to stay alive I have to suck the moisture out of moss, or drink beer.”
But the pig was only one issue. The Grand Tour presenter described a number of issues currently plaguing the farm due to the heat.
“Meanwhile, my cows are so hungry they are prepared to walk through an electric fence every day to look for food.
“To get round the problem, I spent half a day building a proper fence with posts sunk deep into the bedrock. But even this was no deterrent to a starving ton of meat and muscle.
“To try to keep them off the road, I’m using bribery, feeding them the hay I cut earlier in the year,” he admitted.
He continued, joking that he’ll have to end up eating his own animals because of the lack of food.
“Come the winter, there won’t be enough to go round. I may have to start eating them,’ he wrote.
A second series of Clarkson’s Farm has been confirmed with Jeremy Clarkson admitting that we should see it on Prime Video in the New Year. He’ll be joined by fan favourites like Kaleb Cooper, Gerald Cooper, and Jeremy’s partner Lisa Hogan as the presenter fights against the local council and his neighbours to expand his business.
