Clarkson’s Farm made its debut on Amazon Prime Video earlier this month and the series follows presenter Jeremy Clarkson as he learns the ropes in the unfamiliar world of agriculture. Jeremy, bought the land, now known as Diddly Squat Farm in 2008, although he has only recently decided to take over the running of the farm himself. However, the TV presenter doesn’t run the farm on his own, he also is largely helped by the farm manager, Kaleb Cooper – who admitted that he often gets annoyed by Jeremy.
The farm manager was only 21 years old when he started filming on Clarkson’s Farm and he confessed he isn’t afraid to put Jeremy in his place when he makes a mistake.
Kaleb, who used to work for the farmer on Diddly Squat Farm before Jeremy took over, explained that the Grand Tour presenter asked for his help after realising he was “out of his depth”.
Speaking about how the unexpected partnership came about, Kaleb began: “He asked me, ‘How would you like to join me?’
“And I said, ‘Absolutely, we can do it together by all means, you can be the boss and I’ll be your employee, the right-hand man to help you out on the farm when needed’.”
He continued: “So that’s how it all started, really. I’ve worked in those fields every year for the past four years, so I knew exactly how many acres each field was.
“I knew the name of each field, everything about the farm, how everything works.
“So, I taught Jeremy. We have an amazing relationship really. We have a great laugh.”
Despite having a great partnership, Kaleb went on to add that he takes farming “seriously” and so, Jeremy can “annoy” him sometimes when he gets things wrong.
“He does annoy me sometimes,” the manager added. “I take it quite seriously, you see.
“I’ve farmed there for the last four years, and I know everything about it.
“So, I kind of treat it as my own, in a way, so I wanted to see it making money and doing very well. So, if he does f*** up, it really annoys me.”
The Amazon Prime series didn’t get off to the best of starts as Jeremy failed to get to grips with his tractor and seeding crops.

After struggling with the tractor, Jeremy admitted: “I realised that I needed help.
“So, I called Kaleb Cooper, a tractor driver who worked for the previous farmer.”
After attempting to help Jeremy, Kaleb couldn’t believe his eyes when he came back to the field only to discover the host had not planted the seeds in the correct order.
“What have you done?” the farmer said upon seeing Jeremy’s work.
He added: “When I come to spray it and fertilise it, how do I know where to drive?”
Kaleb was frustrated and pointed out Jeremy “hadn’t even drilled it straight” prompting the farmer to yell: “That’s as straight as a roundabout.”
“I’ve learnt my lesson now, I won’t do it again,” Jeremy sheepishly replied.
In another episode, Jeremy even made Kaleb drive all the way to London in an attempt to sell Wasabi to various restaurants.
Clarkson’s Farm is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
