This book is quite entertaining and a bit over the top as you would expect if you remembered the assessment made about the Vauxhall Vectra all that time ago. Having turned his hand to farming three years ago, marmite figure Clarkson has been praised for showing the realities of farming life – whilst finding humour in the challenges and mishaps he faces day to day. 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.
Poruszane wątki bardzo moje, jestem zawsze przeciekawa co dzieje się na tej farmie, zostawia mi tez wiele przemyśleń moralnych, oraz takich na temat funkcjonowania biurokracji etc. Or that it's easier to get planning permission for a nuclear power station than turning an old barn into a restaurant? Faced with suffocating red tape, biblical weather, local objections, a global pandemic and his own frankly staggering ignorance of how to 'do farming', Jeremy soon realises that turning the farm around is going to take more than splashing out on a massive tractor. The book is essentially a journal, so it both starts and ends incredibly abruptly - like Clarkson both ran out of things to say and also got bored of writing at all.There are other things that frustrated Jeremy too, such as the control the government has over what is grown, Brexit laws changing the way things work (like having seeds stuck in France with no way out) and general government bureaucracy. Clarkson himself was keen to downplay his perceived influence on the British public, stating he regularly contradicts himself, and would make a "rubbish" Prime Minister. So, while he’s the first to admit that he’s still only a ‘trainee farmer’, there is clearly still work to be done.
