Clarkson's Farm

If you get a chance Jeremy Clarkson has made a series on Amazon TV about his farm and his struggles running it.

You all may or may not be familiar  with Jeremy Clarkson, famous for Top Gear and The Grand Tour on Amazon tv.

He has also done several good documentaries on miltary history.

I have to say it is very good and not at all wishy washy and politically correct. 

Though there is the occasional swear word dropped in.

Definitely  worth a watch he is good at making TV.

I met him in the Turks and Caicos‘s islands shortly after he had separated from the net work. I had a group of SCUBA Students and he was with his family just chilling out.  He is pretty much like the character you know from the TV show but at least he took the time to chat about cars with a perfect stranger. He was the main reason to watch it , those other two clowns were just riding his shirt tail in my opinion and he got a raw deal . What you see on TV and what goes on behind the screen are two completely differant things .

Clarkson's Farm is definitely worth watching.  Hopefully, it will help to educate the masses of the realities of modern agriculture. 

The language is definitely salty.  I say that the British accent tends to make the words seem more civil.  I've pretty much heard it all and it still makes me cringe.

The most telling moment to me was in episode 5, Pandemicing, Jeremy is standing in the lambing shed unable to socialise due to the lockdown, when he  states that it is the first time ever he has been genuinely happy.

Even if said for the camera  it is a telling moment

We watched it.  We liked it.  Language was bad, everything else was enjoyable.  I liked his kid helper who lived only 75 km from London, had only been there once, with no interest of going back!

We watched it too.   Being a former farmer, and my dad had been in a similar situation as Kaleb, it was even funnier than many others would see.  Mainly because we had been in very similar circumstances.    Seeing some of the British version of Top Gear and Grand Tour (think that was the name), I couldn't have expected anything different with Jeremy Clarkson.   Absolutely love his political incorrectness and willingness to call things as he sees them.   Gerald running the combine, with a mask, talking his own language, with a two way radio was the cake topper.     I'd like to see the scenes that didn't make it in, or get Cheerful Charlie's thoughts (like omg, W**?)

We just started watching too!  HILARIOUS.  For city folks it should be required watching.  Yes he cusses when the tractor dont start or the sheep escape.....like most of us.  Not proud of it, but it is what it is.  Imagine a camera on you all day?  I love how no one in the Ag community seems at all impressed by his "celebrity".  Just a guy who owns 1000ac from town to them.  His worker yelling at him he's a idiot etc.  Seeing the regulations is great and ridiculous.  Great since it shows townies the hassle the Govt put on ag and scary since they have to report knife cuts etc to L&I in UK.

 

Lorenzo thats great, I just read a book about Top Gear and the fella said Jeremy is thee exact same guy in a studio or in a pub or your living room.  May and Hammond have their own quirk but the 3 work so well together.  The Grand Tour is quite good too imho

I got a kick out of it. Mostly because it's not your typical Hollywood production, they actually show the mistakes and bad ideas he makes. At first for a farmer to watch, you tell yourself why am I watching this nonsense. After a couple episodes and several laughs I watched every single one.
