Along the way, Jeremy was helped by a selection of extremely generous and kind people – his finance expert, ‘Cheerful’ Charlie, Kaleb Cooper who became his farming manager by the end of the series.
There was also Gerald – a specialist in the construction and maintenance of the many dry stone walls that were frequently destroyed by Jeremy’s sheep, Kevin, a veteran sheep farmer who was on hand to answer all of Jeremy’s questions about his flock of sheep, and Ellen, the shepherdess Jeremy was forced to employ after one too many sheep related incidents.
Viewers also saw Jeremy’s girlfriend, Lisa Hogan play an integral part; from helping with lambing season to working in the shop.
Along the way, there were several things that went wrong; a prolonged period of drought meant Jeremy’s crops were suffering, to him destroying fields of land to build new habitats, all in the name of ecology.
Jeremy was also frequently seen struggling to get any basic farming done because he bought the biggest tractor on the market – which subsequently was too big to fit or get anywhere.
But Adam, who is a farmer himself in the Cotswolds, praised Jeremy for showing the reality of what it is like to be a farmer.
During a conversation with Radio Times, the Countryfile presenter spoke about the TV shows he has been recently watching.
Adam said: “I like crime dramas, so I’ve been watching Unforgotten and a few episodes of Line of Duty.
“I quite enjoyed Clarkson’s Farm, too. It’s hysterical. But I also think he sheds a light on how complicated and difficult farming is – although he does it in a funny way.”
As for whether there is going to be another series of Clarkson’s Farm, fans are waiting to hear.
Fans have been questioning Jeremy and one said on Twitter: “Can you confirm If the rumours are true that they are shooting series 2?!”
He replied bluntly: “No. We aren’t. Write to Amazon, it’s their decision.”
It comes after Jeremy explained his current predicament; making the farm a financial success.
“In my head, I’m trying to do all sorts of things going into the future,” he said.
“There’s a circulatory to everything and it all starts to make sense to me financially in every way.
“You grow the lamb, you sell it in the shop, you grow the wheat, you sell it in the shop, durum or whatever it might be. Barley, I’ve got some very exciting ideas on that.
“Just seeing if I can make this farm work because last year whenever there was a financial disaster, I’d go and host Who Wants to be a Millionaire.
“But not every farmer can do that. I still can’t understand why my lambs cost more than lambs from New Zealand.
“I don’t understand that. I want to get to the bottom of that and I don’t understand how can supermarkets, if we grow it, mill it and sell it, how can supermarkets be cheaper than that?” Jeremy told Farmer’s Weekly.
Clarkson’s Farm can be watched on Amazon Prime Video now.
