Clarkson’s Farm series three release date announced

The premiere date of the highly-anticipated third series of Clarkson’s Farm has been announced.

Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson and farming contractor Kaleb Cooper will battle failing crops and rising prices in the show, which will be released to Prime Video on May 3.

In first-look images Cooper, who helps Clarkson, 63, with the day-to-day running of his Diddly Squat Farm in Oxfordshire, is seen standing next to the TV star as he holds a piglet.

In another photo, the duo are photographed standing next to Clarkson’s partner Lisa Hogan and Diddly Squat Farm team members Gerald Cooper and “Cheerful” Charlie Ireland, who are gathered around a table that has produce on it.

Clarkson bought the land in the Cotswolds in 2008 and after the villager who ran the farm retired in 2019, the TV presenter decided to see if he could run it himself.

In the upcoming series, the team will face a number of challenges, including a rise in prices for farm supplies and dashed dreams for Clarkson’s restaurant.

Clarkson had found himself in hot water with his local authority after he allegedly opened a restaurant without planning permission, which West Oxfordshire District Council then shut down.

Prime Video says the programme will also show Clarkson trying to make ends meet by hatching a plan to turn a profit from using hundreds of acres of unfarmed land, including woodland and hedgerows.

His other schemes will involve involve goats, pigs, mushrooms, nettles and deer.

Series one of Clarkson’s Farm won plaudits for its cinematography coupled with the lovable staff unafraid to tell the presenter when he was being useless, and charted the difficulties faced by farm workers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Clarkson has also appeared in five seasons of the Prime Video show The Grand Tour alongside James May and Richard Hammond.

The trio, who previously starred on the BBC’s Top Gear together for more than a decade, will be featuring in a final special marking the end of almost 10 years.
