Jeremy Clarkson returned to our screens this month with his new lifestyle show Clarkson’s Farm, which promised lots of laughs as we watched Clarkson try and deal with the stresses of running a farm. We weren’t quite ready for the Doncaster-born broadcasters emotions as he fought back tears while getting to grips with farm life.
His farm in Oxfordshire is the setting for the newbie farmer and the backdrop for his challenge of getting to grips with life on the farm. We follow Clarkson from his first sheep auction, to which he compares to when someone who knows nothing about cars visits a car lot.
He quickly gets attached to his new flock and finds it hard to deal with the advice that three of his sheep should be sent to the abattoir. He describes feeling saddened and is surprised with how quick it all happens when they’re dead as quick as him signing paperwork. Saying to the abattoir boss: “I’m just going to say goodbye to them.”
To which he responded that he: “Might be a bit late.” Obviously, this is the life of a farmer and one of which Clarkson is learning the hard way. He has a think about the life of a sheep farmer, stating that this is what sheep farmers do, but was left feeling a little upset by the realities of it all.
Why not watch the whole series on Amazon Prime, we are sure you will not be disappointed.
