Jeremy Clarkson has been urged to ‘slow down’ with his work on Clarkson’s Farm by his fellow farmer and Countryfile star Adam Henson.
The former Top Gear host has had people hooked as he attempts to learn everything there is to know about farming, aided by farm hand Kaleb Cooper.
To no one’s surprise, the presenter appears to value speed above all else which has occasionally resulted in some absolute disasters on the show.
Adam has high praise for Jeremy, but added: ‘I’ve got endless advice I could give him.’
‘He needs to slow down and plan a little bit before he goes piling in buying things and doing things and then regret it afterwards,’ he pointed out to Express.co.uk.
Jeremy has suffered a fair few catastrophes during his time on the show, most recently a very costly one.
Writing in his latest Sunday Times column, Jeremy said that he managed to farm 50 acres of his barley before the moisture meter started to suggest that dew was coming in.
‘Off went a full lorry load to the grain merchant, who called the next day to say that we hadn’t stopped in time, and that as a result 1.2 tonnes of the 30 he’d picked up was basically water,’ he penned.
‘Understandably he said he wouldn’t be paying for that, so £170 was knocked off the price. And let’s not forget, £170 is £26 more than the farm earned in total last year.’
But there was more bad news to come.
‘Because the 29 tonnes of actual barley we’d sent him had to be dried before it could be turned into hen food, we’d be billed £256,’ he continued.
‘Still, at least things then got worse, because five of the tonnes we’d harvested wouldn’t fit in the lorry and as it wasn’t worth getting another truck for such a small amount, it’s been sitting in the open for a week, becoming crusty and damp and useless. So that’s another £700 down the drain.’
Nevertheless, Jeremy’s farm shop is proving quite the local attraction with long queues over the summer.
He admitted last month in a tweet he had no idea it would be so popular.
Last month, it was also confirmed that Clarkson’s Farm would be returning for a second series.
Clarkson’s Farm is available to stream on Prime Video.
