Description

For the sceptics, give it a whirl; you might just find yourself chuckling despite your reservations. From picturesque views to bustling hedgerows and natural springs, it seems like the perfect place for someone to oversee farming while gallivanting around the world in cars.

Diddly Squat is not just a delightful read; it's a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the unyielding pursuit of dreams. It’s an incredibly short read, made shorter by the blank pages and drawing dotted between every chapter - chapters which themselves last only 6 pages on average. So, while he’s the first to admit that he’s still only a ‘trainee farmer’, there is clearly still work to be done.The good: Funny, but it also brings into sharp relief the huge number of rules and regulations in the farmer’s life. So his second collection of articles about his farming escapades contains some hilarious moments, like running into the solo power pole in a field or having to reverse twenty-five times into a shed. He has become a cultural icon, synonymous with fast cars, witty one-liners, and a distinctive irreverence. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

His opinionated but humorous tongue-in-cheek writing and presenting style has often generated much public reaction to his viewpoints. It’s easy to read, because it is meant for newspaper readers to have something interesting and entertaining to accompany their coffee and bagel (or Sunday Lunch). Because while he’s mastered the art of moaning about nearly everything, some of the other attributes required of a successful farmer prove more of a challenge. Yet, amidst the laughter, there's a resonating truth that strikes a chord, especially for those in the farming community. Fortunately, there's help at hand from a large and (mostly) willing team, including girlfriend Lisa, Kaleb the Tractor Driver, Cheerful Charlie, Ellen the Shepherd and Gerald, his Head of Security and Dry Stone Waller.At Books2Door, we believe that reading is a fundamental skill that every child should have to help improve their vocabulary, grammar, and critical thinking skills. Since the mid-1990s Clarkson has become a recognised public personality, regularly appearing on British television presenting his own shows and appearing as a guest on other shows. The small illustrations are ded good when each chapter arrives; nice that Kaleb Cooper and Cheerful Charlie get mentioned quite as bit also.

Welcome to Jeremy's Farm- Jeremy Clarkson takes us into the pitfalls (and pratfalls) of his new life as gentleman farmer in this thigh-slapping collection. He hates Brexit, but I feel like even if they’d stayed in the EU, farming would be having a hard time in Britain, just for different reasons.For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. Amidst the backdrop of the Covid pandemic, Jeremy embarks on a farming venture on his long-held piece of land, following the retirement of his farm manager. Enthusiastic and inventive schemes to diversify have met with stubborn opposition from the red trouser brigade, defeat at the hands of Council Planning department, and predictable derision from Kaleb - although, to be fair, even Lisa had doubts about Jeremy's brilliant plan to build a business empire founded on rewilding and nettle soup. Comprising a compilation of his Sunday Times columns, the book exudes a delightful and uproarious charm that is undeniably captivating.

For everyone who knows Jeremy Clarkson, you know that some of the jokes made might not be appreciated by everyone, so this book definitely won’t be to everyone’s tastes.

He also describes how a crop lost most of its value after paying for a truck to transport it, then losing money because of excess moisture. According to the book summary, readers can expect to be regaled with more outlandish schemes from Diddly Squat Farm – the sheep are gone, to be replaced with pigs and ‘psychopathic’ goats ­– while the cows have been joined by a bull named Break-Heart Maestro.
