The one thing that made Clarkson’s Farm so great, was the fact that presenter Jeremy Clarkson gave almost anything he could a go to make his farm somehow profitable. Many things went wrong during the filming of the first season, and this made it all the more entertaining. But in a recent column, The Grand Tour presenter wrote about something we didn’t see much of.
The farm’s “biggest disaster” came in the form of Wasabi. He wrote:
“Over the past 18 months, I have peppered the farm with many new and exciting money-spinning projects, and then watched in horror as almost all of them ended in expensive failure.
“Wasabi? This was by far my biggest disaster. I noted the fact that only one chap in all of Britain was growing it and saw this as an opportunity rather than a warning that it might be impossible.
“It isn’t, if you really pay attention, round the clock, but I couldn’t do that because I had potatoes to sell and fish to save and wheat and barley and rape to grow, and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? to host and The Grand Tour to write, and when I did get five minutes to go and check on the “green gold”, I remembered that I had to write a newspaper column.”
He continued, explaining one certain animal’s response to the plant:
“As a result most of the wasabi was eaten by my pheasants, which then ran around squawking a lot.
“Have you ever seen a pheasant sweat? I have. A few plants survived and I tried to sell them to restaurants in London, but this plan failed, and when I put them in my shop most of the customers took one look and bought a sausage instead.”
Season 2 of Clarkson’s Farm Confirmed
A source close to amazon has confirmed that Season 2 of Clarkson’s Farm has been greenlit for production.
“Jeremy is Amazon’s golden boy and a new series is already in the pipeline.
“It’s rated five stars on Amazon and has a 9.3 rating on IMDB, which is practically unheard of.
“It means Jeremy’s fellow farmers Kaleb, ‘Cheerful’ Charlie and Gerald will all be in front of cameras on the farm again.”
