Clarkson’s Farm Trailer: Jeremy Clarkson tends to sheep and battles rain in new Amazon Prime show

The first trailer for Jeremy Clarkson’s new Amazon Prime series, Clarkson’s Farm, has been released.

It follows the Top Gear host, 61, as he embarks on a new life as a farmer, and attempts to govern his 1,000 acre Cotswolds farm over the course of twelve months alongside his girlfriend Lisa Hogan, despite knowing nothing about farming.

The series captures an intense, backbreaking and frequently hilarious year in the life of Britain’s most unlikely farmer and his team, as they contend with the worst farming weather in decades, disobedient animals, unresponsive crops, and an unexpected pandemic.

Jeremy quickly discovers that a modern farmer must be a conservationist, scientist, shepherd, shopkeeper, midwife, engineer, accountant and tractor driver, often at the same time.

Offering viewers a different side of the often outspoken presenter, Jeremy’s farm failures have real emotional consequences on the TV star.

Jeremy, completely out of his comfort zone, is forced to lean on others as he strives to grow crops, rear sheep and pull off environmental projects that are close to his heart.

The two-minute trailer sees the car fanatic roaming around his sprawling grounds on a tractor, and at one point he even crashes the vehicle, exclaiming: ‘Oh, s**t,’ as he drives into the roof of a barn.

At one point, Jeremy attempts to round up a herd of sheep as an unimpressed member of his team asks: ‘Have you ever looked after sheep before?’

In another part of the trainer, an aerial shot of Jeremy’s farm reveals it has been flooded as the region is hit by ‘a month’s worth of torrential rain in a day’.

Jeremy also touches upon the coronavirus pandemic while talking to a member of his team, telling him: ‘I’m pushing 60, [and have] smoked a lot of cigarettes, if I get it…’

Before Jeremy can finish, the farmer interrupts: ‘Yeah, there’s not a lot of hope.’

As the trailer concludes, a voice over from Jeremy explains: ‘I am happy here. I’ve got a choice: I can either go back to London, and resume my old life..’

The TV star is once again interrupted by a team member, who interjects by saying: ‘Yeah, do that.’

Pandemic: Discussing his fears about the pandemic, Jeremy tells a team member: 'I'm pushing 60, [have] smoked a lot of cigarettes, if I get it…'

The presenter has run the Diddly Squat Farm Shop in Cotswold’s village Chipping Norton with partner Lisa Hogan, 46, since 2020.

Lisa made a quick appearance in the trailer, however it is unclear whether Jeremy’s children – Emily, Katya and Finlo, from his marriage to second wife Frances Cain – will appear in the show.
