Jeremy Clarkson Speaks Out About Rising Farming Costs, Which Made Him Think Twice
In a recent column for the Sunday Times, Jeremy Clarkson talked about the money problems he was having at his farm, Diddly Squat Farm. The rising cost of fertiliser was going to make the Grand Tour host’s expenses much higher than he had planned, which made him think about leaving farming.
Andy Cato, a local farmer and the founder of Groove Armada, changed his mind, though. Clarkson learned about a way to find the best crops to grow that involved digging holes in different parts of the field.
Because of this, Clarkson chose to plant wheat and beans on his farm. But not everyone was on board with the idea. Clarkson’s Farm co-star Kaleb Cooper was not happy with the change in strategy.
Cooper, a contractor, cared more about how much product he used than how much it cost. Even though Cooper was sceptical, Clarkson stuck with the new plan and hoped it would help Diddly Squat Farm be successful in the long run.
