Jeremy Clarkson and Lisa Hogan refuse to eat their own lamb meat – and it’s not why you think

Clarkson’s Farm returns to Amazon Prime Video next week for its third series, with Jeremy Clarkson and girlfriend Lisa Hogan getting into the swing of farming life over at Diddly Squat.

Series three will see the couple try to raise pigs alongside the other animals on their land and while they’re usually happy to eat the meat from their farm, they refuse to munch on one particular animal.

Lisa has revealed that the pair refuse to eat their own lambs – but it’s not for the reason you would expect. Speaking ahead of the show’s launch, Lisa said that it’s all down to a farming tradition.

“Farmers swap lambs and we never knew why. You never eat lamb from your own land but we were like, ‘We will!'” she said.

“We got such bad heartburn from it, it was the worst thing!” she added. “So now we swap it and it’s fine – and other farmers don’t get heartburn from ours. There’s a really weird thing going on with the lambs, but it doesn’t happen with any other animal.”

In the new series, we watch as Lisa takes the reins in the farm shop – however she’s given a wake-up call by land agent Charlie Ireland after trying to sell items that aren’t from the local area. He has a serious chat with Lisa in one episode, warning that she could end up with a criminal record if she doesn’t stop selling items that come from beyond 16 miles of the farm.

Lisa revealed ahead of Clarkson’s Farm series three that she wasn’t afraid to face prison. “I was going to take one for the team literally,” she said. “You pay so much in business rates, taxes, then you give it to them and they use it to fight to close you down.”

“It seems strange, the behaviour,” she added. “They’ve done me a favour actually because I wouldn’t have found half of my suppliers unless I really had to search for them within 16 miles. So I’m really grateful to them for that. But I just think [the council] overreacts a little bit sometimes.”

Speaking about working with Jeremy on the farm, Lisa said that she finds spending 24/7 with him “pretty easy”.

“We’re probably so totally co-dependent at this stage because we spend so much time together but he’s so interesting,” she said. “He’s so fascinating and I just love watching the way his brain works, and I always get surprised.

“I think it’s going one way and it’s not. He’s been in the business for a long time. He is really good at it. I love it.”
