The Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson has revealed his plan to help out people in his village with an all-new video on the DriveTribe YouTube channel.

Thanks to the difficult times faced by the world at the moment, communities across the world have been pushed into lockdown situations. This has limited how many people can congregate in a group, and even pushed stores into chaos with limited shopping stock. 

As a result, food, drinks, and other everyday items – with the most notable being toilet paper – have become scarce commodities in certain parts of the world. Yet, if things get worse in his part of Southern England, Jeremy Clarkson has a pretty generous plan for those in need of some help.

Clarkson owns a working farm – but the farm shop has closed its doors for now.

The former Top Gear host, who recently bought a farm in Oxfordshire, has been growing potatoes and other items – selling them to fans who want to have a look at his own farm shop. Though, he’s had to shut down.

As a result, the 56-year-old noted that he has about “10 tonnes” of spare potatoes that he could give away to locals who may need them. “When self-isolation really kicks in and the older people in the village are really struggling, I’ll give all these potatoes away to them,” he revealed in a video on DriveTribe.


“So, I won’t have grown them for nothing, they’re not just going to rot,” Clarkson added, noting that someone had told him that his local supermarkets had no potatoes on sale. “I think I’ve got about 10 tonnes left, so there’s plenty to go around.”

The British TV presenter even joked that some people have been “hoarding lavatory rolls” before showing off his impressive stash of potatoes inside the ‘Diddly Squat’ farm shop. 

Clarkson’s farm isn’t just a novelty thing, either. The 56-year-old has made an Amazon series about it, so fans will get to see what it looks like when it’s in full working order – not just handing out potatoes to those in need of them.
