Emma Ledbury (series 2): a local dairy farmer who lost half her herd of dairy cattle to bovine tuberculosis and provides the farm shop with milk products. Hugo Rifkind (12 June 2021), "Off Clarkson goes and buys the biggest tractor he can find", The Times, p.7 The farming way of life... I can’t describe it to anyone. I love my life. I am very, very happy and I don’t understand why anyone would want to go to London and stay in London, but that’s completely up to them," says Kaleb who, in the programme, shares a story of the one time he did go to London but stayed on the bus because he found it too busy.

It's always had a nice ring to it. Jeremy just never thought that one day his actual job would be 'a farmer'. Clarkson raises a number of issues with farming in the UK that the general public wouldn’t know about, which seem to be quite a bit different to in Australia as the government seems to have more control over what is grown. I enjoyed comparing what I know of Aussie farming with Clarkson’s experience in the UK (I still can’t get over that each field has a name). The columns are humorous, easy to understand and give an insight into different aspects of farming (right down to the farm shop). It’s clear that even for all its frustrations, Clarkson enjoys farming and it really shows through his writing. There’s a sense of pride and love in sharing his farming life.

Also, when someone thinks it's an enviable knowledge to know this by heart (or even more when someone says cr*p like "I was able to test the new automatic because thankfully I was able to shift gears manually and I'm much better than any automation") this is what makes me simultaneously roll my eyes hard enough to lose balance, laugh so hard so I lose my breath and fall asleep from pure boredom. In short - it's not good for me. Tim and Katy Coles (series 2): local cow breeders who sell heifers and beef cattle to Clarkson and later rent him a bull. Country Living chatted to Jeremy and Kaleb ahead of the new series about how Kaleb Cooper met the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? host. We also learn about Kaleb's family and what the farming community means to him. How did Kaleb come to be on Clarkson's Farm with Jeremy Clarkson?

Viktor Zaichenko: a Ukrainian beekeeper who sells honey bees to Clarkson and helps manage the farm's apiary. Olivia Midgley (21 May 2021), "Sheepdog drone and OSR 'nightmare' - first glimpse of Jeremy Clarkson's farm", Farmer's Guardian The rest of the episode is taken up with him gazing in bafflement at a cultivator and a seed drill and pointlessly messing up various things for our theoretical entertainment and non-edification. Eventually, he does what he would have done if contractual obligations to fill eight hours of telly hadn’t militated against it and hires 21-year-old Kaleb Cooper, a former Diddly Squat employee, to do it all. Of course, it's a TV show, so it's absolutely to be expected that things are moved around for filming, that the shop is redesigned for its time on camera, or that when Jeremy makes an announcement that the farm is open for visitors, some things will need to be put in place to make it work on a large scale when the cameras aren't rolling. So I'm certainly not suggesting anyone's being deceived, but it was interesting to get a peek behind the scenes and see what it was really like on the ground - and the reality is a little different to watching it on a TV!

Singh, Anita (10 October 2021). "Jeremy Clarkson 'did more for farmers in one TV series than Countryfile managed in 30 years' ". The Telegraph. Archived from the original on 12 January 2022. The COVID-19 pandemic hits the country. Farm workers are key workers and are able to keep working. The lambing season starts and Clarkson assists in the births. Clarkson decides to plant vegetables in a field instead of barley as pubs are shut and he believes that beer, which barley is used to produce, will not be sold in the same quantities. He re-opens the farm shop to sell the remaining potatoes, but customers are scarce. Other farmers were also reported to have shown an "overwhelmingly favourable" reaction to Clarkson's Farm. [17] The sheep farmer James Rebanks said that the farming community "all loved that programme", and that Clarkson had done more for farming in one series than 30 years of the BBC's long-running farming programme Countryfile. [18] Viewers have found the programme educational and entertaining, and that "they now feel much better informed about farming". [19] The National Farmer's Union has awarded Clarkson 2021 Farming Champion of the Year as "a vocal champion for the British farming industry", and producing that year a show that showcased the realities of farming and one that "has really resonated with the public". [20] Clarkson and his farm assistant Kaleb Cooper won the Flying the Flag for British Agriculture award at the British Farming Awards. [21]
