    Default Clarkson's Farm

    Yes, that Clarkson. He has bought himself a farm and even has a Lamborghini tractor. Apparently he has made many mistakes on his farm but carries on.

    They have even made a television series:

    The truly amazing thing is, there's actually people who will watch it.

    Yes, well he IS old now....has to something to earn more millions...and acting the idiot on a piece of land seems to be his new thing.

    I enjoyed some of his colleagues docos.....James May's Toy Stories, "BBC Earth Lab";
    Men & Motors. Should I Worry About...? Time Commanders , and one of the best Richard Hammond's Invisible Worlds,

    On the contrary, even my wife who couldn't stand him in Top Gear, thought Clarkson's Farm was brilliant and we are both looking forward to Season 2.

    Much the same, she couldn't stand Top Gear but loved Clarkson's Farm.

    It is still Clarkson being a dingo at times as a laugh, be there is a lot of interesting and more informative parts to it also.

    Already watched the first series and the second series is already being filmed with a air date around next year

    The first series topped the Amazon most watched series

    It was widely acclaimed as very informative of what goes on with Clarkson added for laughs

    One of the people involved was Caleb a contractor which now has a cult following

    Recommended watching

    The big shocker for me was how little profit the farm made for a years hard work.
    There was a brief discussion about farming becoming unsustainable in the UK .

    Don't forget he was starting from scratch so had to buy all the equipment up front which dented his profit margin.

    Farming here is not profitable either the best you can do is plant up your farm in pines and enter it into the ETS (emissions trading scheme) which is currently paying out around $2000 / ha far higher than you can ever make farming.
