Jeremy clarkson ,He’s best known for his affection for fast cars – and evidently having little concern for the environment.
Jeremy Clarkson trades turbo vehicles for tractors to film a farming series for Amazon.
The previous Top Gear presenter/host, 59, is currently so ecologically mindful that he wants to share a ‘warts and all at life on his 1,000-acre of land Chipping Norton ranch in the series, I Bought A Farm.
While he continues fronting the gushing services’ motoring series The Grand Tour, Clarkson will film the main scenes of the farming programme this September. It will air one year from now. Where Jeremy Clarkson trades turbo-vehicles for tractors

He said it will be substantially more hard-hitting than the BBC’s Countryfile and other nature programs.
‘This isn’t Kate Humble – much as I like Kate Humble – with 20 acres of land, bottle-feeding a sheep. Or a TV presenter who cultivates veg in his back yard. This is genuine cultivating: Life, demise and structure filling,’ he told the Sunday Times.
‘We’re not making Countryfile. We’ll be showing it warts and all. For example, I have no view on badger culling in terms of whether it’s necessary, but if it’s happening we will not shy away from putting it in the programme.’
It seems his main concern is food supply shortages. ‘Scientists calculate we have just 90 years before we run out of food, because of soil depletion. That’s just 90 more harvests,’ he said.
He and his wife Lisa Hogan, 47, invest quite a bit of their energy at the ranch cottage and plan to construct a bigger home on the site.
Just as cultivating wheat and rapeseed oil, Clarkson has made new living spaces by replanting and clearing streams and lakes.
In spite of once depicting himself as an ‘energetic meatarian’, it appears Clarkson has now surrendered red meat and is moving towards a veggie lover diet. ‘I do eat chicken,’ he said ‘But that’s just a vegetable with a head.’
