Jeremy Clarkson sets up two new ‘Curdle Hill’ businesses as former Top Gear host appears to expand his Cotswolds farming brand
- The two new companies were named Curdle Hill Juice and Curdle Hill Wholesale
- Names shared with Mr Clarkon’s farm in Oxon which he bought ten years ago
- The creation of the two businesses appears to show expansion of farming brand
Jeremy Clarkson has set up two new businesses as he appears to expand his Cotswolds farming empire.
The companies, jointly owned by the former TopGear host and his partner Lisa Hogan, have been named ‘Curdle Hill Juice’ and ‘Curdle Hill Wholesale’.
They share the name with Mr Clarkson’s farm in Chadlington, near Chipping Norton, Oxon which he bought ten years ago.
The creation of two similarly named businesses appears to predict a major expansion of Mr Clarkson’s farming brand.
It is not yet known what the businesses are for, but ‘Curdle Hill Juice’ may be a reference to his milk – which he calls ‘Cow Juice’.

Mr Clarkson also sells honey – which he calls bee juice – and apple juice in his on-site store, the Diddly Squat Farm Shop.
Both businesses were incorporated on February 14, and lists Mr Clarkson and Ms Hogan as directors with equal shares – the same as for their farm.
The nature of the businesses are described as ‘Other business support service activities not elsewhere classified’.
Mr Clarkson’s farm formed the basis of his hit spin-off Amazon Prime series.
The Diddly Squat Shop has faced criticism after Mr Clarkson admitted visitors had ‘swamped’ Chadlington, the Oxfordshire village in which he lives.

His proposal to turn a lambing shed into a restaurant was refused permission by West Oxfordshire District Council in January, after the authority said it was out of keeping with the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The shed was built in 2020 to house Mr Clarkson’s new flock of sheep, which have since been merged with another farmer’s flock.
The council meeting received more than 50 objections, and 12 letters of support.
