Description

Through his witty anecdotes and candid storytelling, Jeremy delves into the heart of what it truly means to be a farmer in the modern era. His opinionated but humorous tongue-in-cheek writing and presenting style has often generated much public reaction to his viewpoints.

Clarkson himself was keen to downplay his perceived influence on the British public, stating he regularly contradicts himself, and would make a "rubbish" Prime Minister. Clarkson's brash and opinionated persona became a defining characteristic of the show, and he became a beloved figure among car enthusiasts. He also describes how a crop lost most of its value after paying for a truck to transport it, then losing money because of excess moisture. Clarkson sheds light on the harsh realities of farming - the skyrocketing costs, the thankless hard work, and the often overlooked struggles of farmers in a post-Covid world.It is accepted by you that Daunt Books has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance. Being a collection of his columns as usual this is a quick and easy read, and makes some poignant and thought-provoking points about the existential crisis British farming is facing in a format that will make people sit up and listen. Fortunately, there's help at hand from a large and (mostly) willing team, including girlfriend Lisa, Kaleb the Tractor Driver, Cheerful Charlie, Ellen the Shepherd and Gerald, his Head of Security and Dry Stone Waller.

I mostly read this because after working at DEFRA the world of farming suddenly becomes a lot more interesting so I was intrigued to get Clarkson's take on it. But he also shines a light on the red tape surrounding the UK farmer and how that affects what he can/can’t do as well as the effects on the environment and the local community.

If you've watched the series of Jeremy and his trials and tribulations you'll love this book, or it will make a brilliant pressie.From a career as a local journalist in the north of England, he rose to public prominence as a presenter of the original format of Top Gear in 1988.

In essence, this book is not just a hilarious account of a motoring journalist-turned-farmer; it's a hat tip to the unsung heroes of the farming world, served with a side of classic Clarkson humour. An idyllic spot offering picturesque views across the Cotswolds, bustling hedgerows and natural springs, it's the perfect plot of land for someone to delegate the actual, you know, farming to someone else while he galivants around the world in cars.
