‘Angry farmers’ have hit out at Countryfile for depicting them as ‘heroes’ in Jeremy Clarkson’s Farm.
Farmer James Rebanks attacked COUNTRYFILE, claiming that Jeremy Clarkson had done “more for farming in one year than the BBC has done in 30 years.”
Clarkson’s Farm, Jeremy Clarkson’s Amazon Prime series, has been a hit with fans since its premiere earlier this year. Jeremy is followed as he tries to run Diddly Squat Farm in Chipping Norton. The 61-year-old, however, is not alone, as farm manager Kaleb Cooper is on hand to assist him. The comedic team has quickly become fan favorites, and the show has been renewed for a second season due to its success.
Despite Jeremy making very little money from his new business and battling along the road, one farmer has commended his efforts.
Jeremy has done more for farmers in one TV season than BBC’s Countryfile has done in 30 years, according to author and farmer James Rebanks.
Clarkson’s Farm, he asserted, is preferred by the farming community over Countryfile.
James opened his discussion of Jeremy’s performance at the Cheltenham Literature Festival by saying, “I can report back from within the agricultural community.” That program was a hit with everyone. It was a hit with them.” “Okay, he’s clowning around, and he plays to that audience,” he added, according to the Telegraph. “A lot of farmers are boys who like machinery, and they would have watched Top Gear and all the rest of it.” “But what they really appreciated was the fact that they’d been pissed up with Countryfile for nearly 30 years because the whole idea of Countryfile is that you can’t establish a mainstream,” he continued.
“A prime-time TV show on farming since farming is for a specific type of stupid.”
Jeremy’s focus on the necessity of farm economics, as well as how “difficult” it is, was praised by James.
Despite the series’ “silly moments,” he said, the farming community is relieved that someone as well-known as Jeremy is standing up for them.
Jeremy bought the acreage that is now known as Diddly Squat Farm in 2008, but he opted to run the farm himself earlier this year.
Over the past year, the Grand Tour host has experienced a number of challenges while attempting to run his farm properly.
The former Top Gear host also keeps his fans up to date on his agricultural exploits.
Jeremy made two additional announcements in August. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
