Kaleb Cooper, the farm manager of Diddly Squat and Number 2 to presenter Jeremy Clarkson of Clarkson’s Farm, is one of the main cogs of the Diddly Squat Farm machine. But now, for the first time ever, he’s gone on holiday with his family. Jeremy has revealed how he feel about this in an interview.
RTE Radio’s Brendan O’Connor praised Jeremy for his work on the popular Amazon Prime Video show Clarkson’s Farm before praising Kaleb on his patience around the Grand Tour presenter.
“Farming is being represented as it really is,” Jeremy admitted before adding that Kaleb isn’t quite as patient has he thinks. “He isn’t. He shouts at me all the time!
“He gets up in the morning and he shouts at me all day long.”
Now, Kaleb has left the farm, so Clarkson reflects on what it’s like to be fully in charge of the 1,000 plot of land:
“It’s a responsibility having to look after the farm on my own, but it is nice not being shouted at all the time by him.”
Jeremy’s partner Lisa Hogan can also be found working on the farm each day, but Jeremy admits that she wasn’t expecting to be such a large part of the daily running on the business:
“She’s had a big change in her life from whatever she was doing before which was mostly appearing in pretty frocks.”
Despite this, he reveals that she has adapted quickly to her new life working in tracksuits and getting her hands dirty. But she almost didn’t follow Clarkson to their new life in Oxfordshire.
She admitted to The Times that initially, she didn’t want to move to the farm full-time, instead wanting to have the freedom to do what she wanted:
“I think Jeremy wanted me to move down here full-time, but if he’d said that to me I might have just said no.
“I said I would do it, but I want to be able to do what I want to do in it.”
