Jeremy Clarkson has said his goodbyes to the customers of his Diddly Squat farm shop after announcing its temporary closure.
The shop at his Oxfordshire estate has been a huge success following the hit TV series Clarkson’s Farm.
It describes itself as “a small barn full of good, no-nonsense things you’ll like”.
The venture has had fans travel from far and wide to get their produce, but they were left gutted after the shock announcement that the shop would soon be closing.
Jeremy announced the date of the closure on Instagram over the festive period.
The official account of the farm shop posted: “Diddly Squat Farm Shop open 9.30-4pm until 31st December. Closed January & February.”
The decision saw fans cause chaos on New Year’s Eve as customers seemed to be desperate to stock up on supplies from the Top Gear star’s outlet after he shared that he will be shutting up shop for two months.
Ahead of its temporary closing, the official Diddly Squat Instagram account posted: “Thank you to everyone who visited.
“Happy New Year. See you in March. Milk machine remains open 24/7.”
While the busy day of sales prior to the shop’s closure would have been welcomed by the presenter, local residents were reportedly unhappy with how traffic had come to a standstill.
One resident told the Oxford Mail: “Buses can’t get through, it’s all at a standstill and nothing is being done.
“A ten-minute round trip is now taking over an hour due to traffic and parking on the road.
Jeremy slammed the moaning local who blamed his farm for making them miss a hospital appointment.
Responding to the article on Twitter regarding the event, Jeremy wrote: “There are three roads from Chadlington to the A361. She could have used one of the other two instead of moaning.”
The resident, who was quoted anonymously, had also called the situation “complete chaos.” They said: “I was 20 minutes late for a doctor’s appointment due to queues.”
The presenter bought the plot of land back in 2008 and the hit documentary series follows all of the highs and lows he faces while getting to grips with a 1,000 acre working farm.
He recently admitted he was “the happiest he has ever been” and “loved every second” of filming the show.
