Adam Henson, 54, has revealed he found fellow farmer Jeremy Clarkson’s, 61, show Clarkson’s Farm “hysterical”. The Countryfile star enjoyed the Amazon programme as he said it shone a light on the “difficulties” of agricultural life.

Speaking on TV shows he had viewed recently, he shared: “I like crime dramas, so I’ve been watching Unforgotten and a few episodes of Line of Duty.

“I quite enjoyed Clarkson’s Farm, too. It’s hysterical. But I also think he sheds a light on how complicated and difficult farming is – although he does it in a funny way, “ he added to Radio Times.

Although Adam, who runs Cotswold Farm Park, admits he is not a fan of reality shows such as “Love Island and Strictly Come Dancing”.

Meanwhile, former Top Gear host Jeremy has spoken openly about the trials and tribulations of sheep farming, after taking on his own herd at his Cotswolds estate.

The Grand Tour star insists the public should have “more respect” for farmers such as Amanda Owen, 46, who stars in Our Yorkshire Farm, which is filmed on Upper Swaledale, near Keld, Yorkshire.

Opening up on his thoughts towards Amanda and her husband Clive Owen, 66, who run and live on Ravenseat farm with their nine children, Jeremy said: “We should have more respect for them than we do.

“It’s really hard work sheep farming and there up in Keld, Ravenseat, in the Yorkshire Dales and it’s really hard work.

“I only have 78 [sheep] and I’m in the Cotswolds which is not hard to get about, but the sheep want to die.”

Jeremy shared how the sheep often find themselves in tricky situations on the farm.

He continued: “They don’t want to die in a nice smooth relaxing way, they want to die of something revolting. 

“So they will put their head in the stock fence and try to cut it off, or they will just decide to rot from the back end. 

“They literally rot! Then you have to pay someone to shoot them.

“I should do this myself but it’s just impossible as far as I can work out,” he added.

Jeremy has had a tough run of it since purchasing his Chipping Norton farm, as he has encountered a number of obstacles including bad weather and the ramifications of Brexit.

The born-again farmer has spoken on the difficulty of agricultural life and the challenges of filming his experience of bringing the Diddly Squat Farm Shop to life.

The presenter has admitted that farming has proved an unexpected challenge.

 

He shared: ”I’ve had the farm since 2008, but I haven’t really been involved with it at all.

 “A man in the village ran it, and then he retired, and I don’t know what it was, but I just thought, ‘I can do that’.

“I genuinely thought you put seeds in the ground, weather happens and then food grows.
