Clarkson's Farm visitors expose what it doesn't show you on TV

If you've been watching the Amazon Prime show Clarkson's Farm, then you might have felt the temptation to hop in the car and drive over to Diddly Squat so you can look around the place yourself.

That's exactly what plenty of people have done, as the show's popularity has led to the farm getting a huge number of visitors with the queues sometimes so large that local residents have called the police.

So many people want to visit the farm and the on-site shop that it's led to 'parking chaos' as the sheer number of cars arriving is difficult to manage.

Part of Jeremy Clarkson's efforts to improve Diddly Squat in the recent second series of Clarkson's Farm involved plans to build a larger, sturdier car park but he was rebuffed by the council.

Despite the setbacks, Clarkson's Farm viewers will know that over the course of the show, Diddly Squat has become a popular destination for tourists - with the farm shop in particular being a favourite.

However, when the Prime Video cameras aren't around some visitors to Diddly Squat Farm have noticed a few things which don't make it onto the show and some big differences to the way things look on TV.

If you're heading to Diddly Squat hoping to see some of the famous faces from Clarkson's Farm, then you might end up being a bit disappointed as you're not guaranteed to meet any.

Some visitors have said they popped into the farm shop and discovered staff working there instead of Lisa Hogan, while another left a review saying there were 'hoping to see Jeremy or Kaleb but we didn't see anyone famous on this occasion'.

Whether you'll spot one of the Clarkson's Farm regulars seems to be a matter of chance as other visitors have said they had a lovely time meeting the stars and posted pictures of themselves to prove they really did get the celebrity meet and greet.

Other visitors to Diddly Squat said the shop itself is pretty expensive, with jars of honey (or bee juice) going for as much as £15 each.

Yorkshire Live reporter Alex Evans popped down to have a look and found that the farm shop, while being really small on the inside, was very carefully and neatly managed with tidy rows of stock.

It was about 'the size of a postage stamp', while what's on sale also appears to differ from what you see on TV as there were far more souvenirs available to buy.

He also found other things on-site that you don't see in the show, including a pop-up shop and a local lavender flower seller, while visitors have also been leaving their own messages on the planks of the lambing shed.

These messages range from people declaring they were there to insults aimed at Clarkson's The Grand Tour co-star James May, while Pepper the cow was also praised by visitors.

"We love Pepper" indeed!
