Clarksons done more for british farmers in one show than the government has done for 30 years.

@g8ymw Yep. I think it's the best thing he's done. Ok maybe the 10k supercar challenge episode on TG but that was just entertainment. This series hopefully has woken people up to the huge problems farming has had recently, especially the last two years. Rain on Sunday btw!

BenJervis62 He showed people how difficult farming is with regards to maintaining and planting crops as well raising livestock. He also showed how financially hard farming can be if you actually watch the final episode of the series. That and he showed the stupid amout of government bureaucracy you have to deal with folks such as DEFRA.

“I’ve met some people from the government now, they’re not impressive.” - Jeremy Clarkson. My favorite new quote.
Vivienne March
I've yet to meet anyone from government who was impressive. But I have been extremely impressed with Clarkson and company on the farm.
Brym Stone
Brym Stone Vor year
@Vivienne March they're not. and it's the people in the background who end up having to fix the mess and actually try to get things done. the civil servants and uniformed day staff etc. not the ones on tv and in the news.
IXI Futureproof
That is an organisation that needs completely restructuring. Politicians should be experts from the field they represent, not "career" politicians with no real world experience and no clue. All parties are a shambles.
Brym Stone
Brym Stone Vor year
@IXI Futureproof sadly that's not how it works. the real talent gets really occasional financial rewards. nothing remotely close to the absurd money mp's make. and what's more, they're not very well incentivised to stick around because of contractors being brought in to inevitably replace them or automate their whole jobs out of existence. if government spent less on contractors (i.e. lining the pockets of their family and friends on the boards of such companies!) and more on keeping their existing talent, they'd get so much more done, staff would benefit so much more, and government would save money hand over fist. but that's just my expert opinion. what the hell would i know about any of it.

Clarkson made an extremely good point when he said that if the grants stop being given to farmers, the Government should not interfere.

Clarkson becoming a champion for farming (or anything for that matter) is amazing. He genuinely cares, non schtick, no angles, great chemistry. This is probably the best reality-documentary crossover there is or there ever was. It is genuinely relevant, meaningful, and it affects everyone. Boldly go, Jeremy and Caleb.
MdvK Vor year
'cause he's a bloody good lad, this one' that was from the heart and that sums it all up to me!
Mike Hutchison
Ever thought that it was because…..he knows what he’s doing and he’s the one doing the work ?

@Mike Hutchison Have you ever thought that Kaleb was hired by Jeremy because Clarkson interviewed a lot of people, and decided to hire someone that he both: got along with, and in some way admired, professionally?

tommy fred
tommy fred Vor year
@Jordan no mate i thought he was 'a bit of a twat'. that's not the same as being 'a twat'. i suspect you don't understand the difference. i would love to see your definition of both. just to see the way you interpreted my use. also label's narrow the mind? really! now presumption and pre conclusion. they are truly mind closing. but a label is just that, a point of reference. car is a label but without defining more. its just a LGV focused on people transportation. the word is just used so you don't, for instance, try coming by bus. this is mind narrowing? only if your presuming. :)
CJrun Vor year
You may have missed it. In the early days when they added Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson was the one that insisted on adding May. They wouldn't, so he left the show. He WANTED to be the heel, and he wanted to be able to play the insufferable lout against Hammond and May. He didn't want to play the comedian roll, or the equipment nerd, he wanted to play the lout that everybody would hate, sort of. On his show, he's still doing the same roll, I mean... the Lamborghini tractor and the barn door is that roll, but he's also a bit more real at times. Wish him well.

I’ve always loved to watch Clarkson on top gear and the grand tour, but I was so impressed and so entertained watching Clarkson and Kaleb on the farm. I think Clarkson has been one of the best things that could have ever happened to farming and agriculture.
Erect My Greenhouse
Yeah. He has shown how hard it is and how little anyone in big towns realises what has to be put in to get crops and livestock on their plates. Harry Meaden also does a good show - Harry's Farm.
Benjamin Signor
I dunno about the best thing that's happened to farming, Farming Simulator 2022 is looking pretty sweet. :)
john lim
john lim Vor year
I applaud JC for his magnificent work in highlighting the critical issues surrounding farming & the countryside to us city troglodytes. And it’s ridiculous that farmers should be held at the mercy of govt bureaucrats who prob know as much about the countryside as me. It’s also grossly unfair that farmers should remain at bottom of the pile when it comes to reaping the financial rewards for the work put in to produce food. Think farmers, through the BFA, need to start collectively working their way up the value chain instead of letting the supermarket brands monopolise the retailing space.
True Tothegame
@john lim he voted out the EU & thats killing our farmers

Jeremy and Kaleb and all the off camera folks that made this show possible, thank you! You have helped farmers EVERYWHERE. Jermey plays at being a serious farmer and in the process of stupid mistakes and silliness he makes us all aware how involved and difficult real farming truly is. The two of them are great together. Thank You again!
Chris Brackin
Chris Brackin Vor year
The fact that he not only feels this way about being sort of a voice for farmers but also saying in the show that it's about the happiest he's ever been just makes me feel so good. Well done Clarkson and Kaleb and everyone involved in the show.

Kudos to Jeremy for letting Kaleb shine - and for promoting great British farmers

Even in America us farmers love the light Clarkson shines on the whole industry. As he said farmers aren't negligent and most truly care about being good stewards of the land and It's extremely refreshing to hear.
M Vor year
Jermey Clarkson - and his compatriot Harry Metcalfe (Harrys Farm) - have between them, created knowledge and awareness of what is really going on with our Farming community, their struggles, difficulties and motivations. Both should be commended and maybe listened to by UK Government!! Wonderful series both 👍🏼

Harrys Farm is brilliant too and i suspect was the Terry Pratchett to JKR Harry Potter with Clarkson Farm. There is so much damage to reverse due to centralisation and regulations imposed to benefit mega corps.

@Reece The thing is farming as it is for the population we have is not sustainable it's just not we do need to change farming some of it is letting farmers react better to the conditions where they are instead of having some stupid blanket policy for all farms. Yet equally is fundamental changing how we farm. Skyscraper farms is the future for certain crops, Low water, low fertilizer, low chemical farming, wilding like we see on the program is the only way forward. We need to support farmer but and I hate to say it. We also need to push these stubborn stick in the mud who go "It's been done this way for 10 generation i'm not changing it one little bit" out of the way because things have changed and some of the old way can no longer work. Over here in the state our aquifers are going dry from farming It took in some cases it's thought to of taken hundred of thousands of years for them to fill and we have pumped them dry in spots in a few centuries.

I love the. humility in this, Clarkson could easily turn this into "how great am I", instead he rightly calls out all involved and uses the situation he finds himself in to draw attention to all in the Team and more importantly, the wider farming community. Doff my cap to you sir.
FS Vor year
Real talk for a second. "Im so great" thing is a "presenter persona" of Jeremy. Yes he might have confidence to believe in himself. But in many interviews he has done. He is very down to earth. Plus he most likely knew how much good he can do with his speech at such events and help all of the UK farmers. So very smartly he decided to be serious about it :)

Dallas Sukerkin
I have to say it is absolutely remarkable the transformation this fellow has gone through in terms of moving from being merely very entertaining to actually being purposeful and trying to make a positive difference. Lots have said it but I will too, by making this tv series and, because of his prior fame and his talents, making it successful, many people are for the first time getting an idea of what it takes to put food on the table.
yeah you may want to go back and watch some of trips even on the Grand Tour and Top Gear, yeah it was mostly about cars but every now and then he would expose things that wasn't supposed to be seen and made us all think differently... hes actually a very down to earth person and actually cares about things and not the rich idiot everyone tells you that he is.. hes been doing it for yrs and that is the main reason why the BBC will never allow him to host another show or documentary or interview where he has an opinion..

Paul Gamble
Paul Gamble Vor year
Sounds like you might be new to Jeremy's serious side. I implore you to seek out three things which will give you a new appreciation for him. "The Greatest Raid of all" , "The Victoria Cross: For Valour" and "Great Britons: Isambard Kingdom Brunel". These are subjects he has huge passion for and it really shines through in the documentaries. Jezza may have cultivated a persona of being this big brash oaf, but you'll see the man behind the brand after watching these. He's a lot smarter and a great deal more empathetic than Top Gear or Grand Tour showed you.
Dallas Sukerkin
@Paul Gamble Very true. Those documentaries he did were very high quality and excellently presented.
TheRasmusdc Vor year
@dunhillsupramk3 that is the main part of it, i think they in the topgear / grand tour has always tried to put focus on something horrid, like the water starvation in the Grand tour episode in Vietnam, and going through talking about Polpot, but they have actually tried to show also the beauty of these places, the only place which i felt actually hit them hard, was what they did in Argentina, i do not really thing that they thought that they would be hunted like that, and that the episode ended in being fleeing the country. However i do agree that Clarksons Farm is an extremely good show, but it is lifted by the staff around him, usually he needs Hammond and May, but it just works with the staff he has on the farm.

Clarkson is a good bloke! Allowing Kaleb to take the spotlight and standing back. Even Kaleb’s name was at the top of the screen which I thought was a nice touch. Jeremy’s learning but in the meantime using the brand he’s created to provide a platform for British Farming. That deserves an award itself and thats why he’s our national treasure.
Robert Higgins
I'm so glad Jeremy's made the show as he's got such a following and will be a great ambassador for enlightening the public. BBC has an agenda and its plain to see if you look for it.
mweston25 Vor 11 Monate
I’m an ex soldier and I had no clue how insanely difficult it is to be a farmer, in certain scenarios being a farmer is more difficult than being a soldier, when we work hard it is flat out but it’s never flat out 24/7 even on deployment you will have hours of sitting around and doing nothing, farming is early morning and late finishes daily. If it weren’t for Clarkson I wouldn’t have understood the difficulties farmers have to go through and how the government doesn’t just not help but actively hinders the work of the people who literally feed us.
Philip Bridges
I am so glad that Clarkson made a thoroughly entertaining and more informative at the same time farming program, He may not know much about farming, but he sure as hell knows more now than when he first started!!, more importantly however is the generation like Kaleb. A decent young lad with a passion for all the hard work it takes to be a British farmer, a great role model I would say, and deserves every success in the future.

Clarkson is one of the very few rare people who have been gifted with the ability to change the status quo. He has been doing this for some time, in a few discrete areas up till recently but all the same principles are again present in this one, a fundamental one, farming. The food we eat, or should do. He will revolutionise it.

I think Clarkson deserves this award as much as Kaleb. Done so much to raise awareness for the blight of the British Farmers. He's sort of doing something that matters more than a car show and he's actually proud of himself (rightly so) whilst keeping the comedy elements. I mean we were all laughing at his joke entry vid to Farmer Of the Year, but he's actually gone and won an award! Good for them and the other on his farm. Long may it continue!

Clarkson reminds me of my grandad…one of those guys whose genuine praise and pat on the back, as a youngster, really is worth more than any money, because you know he doesn’t hand it out often
Old Geordie Geezer
Looking back over my lifetime of work I just crease up when people say a pat on the back is worth more than money. I'm guessing this is a millennial concept brought about by that generation's requirement to be loved, appreciated and congratulated at every possible moment. Try buying a loaf of bread with a pat on the back, and see how that goes!
Banksy238 Vor year
@Old Geordie Geezer not at all. I have no feelings of intolerance and I completely understand what you said, I just retorted. My comment was in no way about safe spaces or Molly coddling. It was about the bond created when a young man earns the respect of an older, more accomplished man, or even his role model…through hard work and admirable qualities. You took my point of how it feels to ACHIEVE respect and credit from a mentor/role model and warped it into something you could start to vent your frustrations about the “everyone gets a medal, credit for taking part” culture that is prevalent in modern society. I share your sentiments completely about the weak, woke culture of today…but I thought it poor that you felt the need to infer the things you did from something nice and something that is clearly lacking in today’s society. Hard work, pride in your work, role models, and competence. Congratulations on your success and knowing your worth, I’m sure your an accomplished and decent person. Since you are trying to infer characteristics from what I have said, I will tell you I am no different, in a highly accomplished professional job, I am a husband and father raising a family, having overcome true adversity, I am anti-safe-space etc, self motivated and largely opposed to the softness and obsession with feelings purported in society today. BUT I know when I was a teenager, I valued the day my work was acknowledged and praised by someone I considered a master of their craft, far more than a few extra quid at Christmas (which is what my original comment was about) It’s not the need for a pat on the head, or lacking self worth, it’s developing pride in what you do and enjoying the rewards that come with it. Also I’m not hiding behind a keyboard. I said nothing I wouldn’t feel more than comfortable saying to your face. It just happens that this is the medium in which the conversation occurred. I think if you deem my response as “abusive”…you sound like the exact kind of person you are complaining about. Maybe dumb could be considered an insult (not exactly a particularly nasty one) but ignorant is certainly not abuse. I gave my reasons for why I thought your reply was ignorant. Has nothing to do with tolerance or understanding. Further terms often used within victimhood mentality. And have nothing to do with my response to you.

Food. It's cost and availability is taken for granted.
Martin Hambleton
@Mike Hutchison Again. They are landowners not Farmers. There is a World of difference. Farmers themselves don't want subsidies of any description. The only reason that Farming receives subsidies is so that the public can have cheap food. If the subsidies were not there, food costs would be sky high. This is not unique to the UK but in one way, shape or form is the same everywhere. But not necessarily worded, "subsidies". This has made Farmers into, Hoop jumpers, box tickers. The landowners you mention are not family run Farms and by no means represent them. Your average Farmer will be working for less than the minimum wage for the hours worked. The investment on any Farm is massive and every penny will be reinvested into machinery, animals, buildings, fertiliser, seed, crop chemicals, maintenance, contractors, labour, vets Bill's, and countless other bills I haven't mentioned. The subsidies that you mention would probably pay the fertiliser bill, and that's it! A lot of people think that Farmers get the subsidy payment and book a holiday in the Bahamas? This is definitely not the case. Are you connected with Agriculture?

I'm not a farmer and this series has opened my eyes to that world! It's a hard life. Jeremy makes it entertaining, Kaleb et al. make it work - Looking forward to seeing series 2 👍

This is why we love him and he shrugs off the cancellation bs. He is what he is and unashamedly so.

Who would have thought 10 years ago Jeremy Clarkson would be the champion of British farming... Caleb will go far, he is representative of the future. Keep going guys!

Jeremy and Kaleb are doing for farms and farmers what two decades ago, Jeremy, James and Richard did for cars and car enthusiasts. They totally deserved this award!

I loved every second. Can’t wait for season 2. I learned while being entertained. Outstanding.

I reside in Australia and watching Clarkson's Farm has given me insight into the absolute slog and tireless work put in by Farmers. Their entire Life is dictated by the need of Farm Animals and the seasons of Crops. As a city person I have always done my weekly shop without much thought to Farmers. I now purchase my meat and vegetables from Farmers direct so they benefit from direct sales for their hard work and endeavours on their Farm. Truly eye opening and I am no longer ignorant to Farmers enormous amount of work 24/7.

I was born & raised in Sydney, it sickens me how the sheep farmer in Merriwa has no train line to their town anymore; meanwhile the welfare-sponge in Western Sydney gets a metro train underneath their existing train line just because they want their kids to come home from school sooner. City-centric politics has ruined Australia's rural towns. I'm so glad I changed my career years ago & got to travel around NSW for work, opened my eyes to the reality of farmers & what they endure.

Not only has Clarkson helped spread the plight and battles of farmers across the world (stated as a semi-rural American) but he’s started to look healthier and brought attention to conservation efforts that were overlooked in the past

I knew farming was clearly hardwork but i had no idea how hard until this show. Thank you all British farmers for all the hardwork you do and the meals you help provide every single day.

What a great series on Amazon, the work ethic is great. I will always support local farm shops. Well done both of you and the team I love it.

Wonderful clip, with real feeling & sentiment from both of them. I've loved the first series of Clarkson's Farm, and it's made me and my family realise and learn that we owe the farming community so much. I'll be taking the advice, look for the red tractors!

You can tell Clarkson thinks the world of him! I mean I love Top Gear/Grand Tour but Clarkson’s Farm is on a whole new level. I didn’t appreciate how hard farming is and how hard they work. Bloody good programme and huge respect to you both, the team and all the other farmers out there. Let’s make sure it doesn’t die out!

So he got the perm in the end, I see👍🏻😁 But on a serious note, I applaud Jeremy and the team who put together this wonderful series. Never thought Jeremy would become a champion of farming, but he is, and huge thanks to him for showcasing the ups and downs of rural life
