Kaleb Cooper, who stars in Amazon Prime’s Clarkson’s Farm, has opened up about his dream of owning his own farm and how he won’t let his TV career get in the way of it

Kaleb Cooper, the breakout star of Clarkson’s Farm, has candidly shared his vexation and determination to own a piece of land himself.

At just 25, Kaleb has become a household name as Jeremy Clarkson’s trusty sidekick on the hit Amazon Prime series. The ex-Top Gear host snapped up Diddly Squat Farm in the Cotswolds back in 2008 and took the plunge into farming eleven years later.

With the second season of their agricultural adventures about to drop on Prime Video, Kaleb’s lifelong passion for farming is no secret. He’s been grafting on the fields of Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, long before Clarkson’s tenure began.

Despite his aspirations to be his own boss on the farm, Kaleb has opened up about the prohibitive costs stopping him from achieving his goal right now. Speaking to The Telegraph, he lamented the sky-high prices, saying, “Everything’s through the roof,” but insisted he wouldn’t dream of leaving his beloved Chipping Norton.

He described his current predicament as “frustrating” yet remains steadfast in his ambition, stating, “That’s why I’m so busy doing everything possible to get to that dream [of buying a farm]… I’m going to do it one day.”

Even with the roaring success of the show, Kaleb has made it clear that his heart lies in the fields rather than the fame, vowing not to let the spotlight distract him from his ultimate goal of owning his own farm.

“There’s always a lot of talk of, ‘Don’t change, Kaleb, don’t do this and don’t do that,’ but that really annoys me,” he confessed to Amazon. “I’m 25 years old, yes, but I started my business at 13 years old with some chickens and I then started my contracting business at 16, so I’ve been doing this a long time and with everything that I do, it’s got to revolve around my business.”

Kaleb went on: “I’m not going to chuck away my main business, the thing that feeds me, just because I’m on TV. I work every day. Farming isn’t a job for me, it’s a way of life and I love that way of life. My dream is to buy my own farm and that is what I’m aiming towards. There’s something that’s stuck in my head continuously: dreams don’t work unless you do. Farming isn’t a job for me, it’s a way of life and I love that way of life.”
