Get ready for season two of Clarkson's Farm with Kaleb Cooper's worldly wisdom on life's big issues, from the difference between straw and hay to the importance of having a hair perm.

Introducing Clarkson's Farm favourite Kaleb Cooper's worldly wisdom on life's big issues, from the difference between straw and hay to the importance of having a hair perm. Chipping Norton's celebrity farmer Kaleb Cooper has strong views on lots of things: sheep ('suicidal morons'), Jeremy Clarkson ('there are two types of farming unless you count whatever it is Jeremy thinks he's doing'), goats ('they're a proper good clear-up animal, they eat everything - no wonder they taste horrible'), New York ('if it's like London, where there are no tractors, that's no good') and more. I will leave you with my favourite quote from the book: ‘You give a sheep a choice between life and death, and it’ll look at one, and then at the other, and then it’ll run towards death every time. Every day, their main objective is to die.’ Chipping Norton's celebrity farmer Kaleb Cooper has strong views on lots of things: sheep ('suicidal morons'), Jeremy Clarkson ('there are two types of farming, unless you count whatever it is Jeremy thinks he's doing'), goats ('they're a proper good clear-up animal, they eat everything - no wonder they taste horrible'), New York ('if it's like London, where there are no tractors, that's no good') and more. Chipping Norton's celebrity farmer Kaleb Cooper has strong views on lots of things: sheep ('stupid'), Jeremy Clarkson ('f***ing idiot'), goats ('they're a proper good clear-up animal, they eat everything - no wonder they taste horrible'), New York ('if it's like London, where there are no tractors, that's no good') and more.

In the age of celebrity, Kaleb Cooper emerges as an unlikely role model. He has “zero interest in any drug that isn’t cider” and while others of his generation are gluing themselves to pavements and moaning about the debts they have accrued in acquiring their ’ology degrees, Kaleb has quietly been eschewing academe to pursue the British rural dream, and make a fortune in the process. Utterly hilarious, this is Kaleb as you've got to know him and love him on the hugely successful television series.

Kaleb Cooper, the breakout star from ‘Clarkson’s Farm’ (aka the one who did the actual farming) discusses all angles of life, from cities to sports; celebrities to parties. Part informative book about farming, part love letter to farming, part humorous memoir… about farming! This book is an enjoyable romp through the countryside, as seen through the eyes of a country boy, laying bare all the good and bad moments of life. This book is guaranteed to teach you something, whether big or small, and make you laugh along the way. As much as we hoped it might be otherwise, it is definitely the right division of labour for Squire Clarkson to continue to write his columns while Kaleb tills the fields at Diddly Squat Farm. Reading between the lines though, it is hard not to be impressed by the snippets of Kaleb Cooper’s life story that emerge alongside tales of vomit-filled nights at Young Farmers Club barn dances.Some of the banalities fall a bit flat but there is something very refreshing about a member of Generation Z saying that he doesn’t have a view on Greta Thunberg because he has never heard of her. He never mentions pronouns once, possibly, one guesses, because he was playing truant when they did grammar at school. Nor gender fluidity, which would no doubt be beyond his frame of reference in the farmyard, though he does display an androgynously millennial approach to the question of hairstyles as we witness the Cooper bonce (“blond or ginger, ok strawberry blond”) going through various perms and man-buns when not in its natural rustic thatch. His introduction to the facts of life, incidentally, came when he witnessed some druids (“probably townies”) conducting a moonlit orgy. This is perhaps unsurprising given that he has just turned 24, claims never to have seen the sea, cheerfully admits that the first book he has ever owned is the one he has just written, and can’t see the point in reading the Bible as “I already know how it ends.” And this becomes the book’s USP, as it flaunts his philistinism in a laddish sort of way, bumping through various themes like a stand-up comedian’s act. To reinforce the piss-take, this children’s-book-for-adults is illustrated with random photographs and illustrations with clever captions that one suspects are contributed by the bright young things at his publisher, especially the ones in Latin. The best chapters are on farming, where his passion shines alongside a reliably authentic aversion to Countryfile, gallows humour about the dangers of farm work (he had three ribs broken by a bull) and perceptive observations about farm animals and their quirks.
