Kaleb Cooper – Clarkson’s Farm
Kaleb Cooper is a farming contractor from Oxfordshire who plays a central advisory role to Jeremy Clarkson in all eight episodes of the Prime Video series Clarkson’s Farm.
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 World According to Kaleb, he shares his thoughts on topics such as capital cities, famous people, hairstyles and why farming is the best job in the world.
Meet Kaleb on Thursday 10th November.

She has written about food, books, and sexuality for various publications, including the Guardian, Prospect Magazine, Slightly Foxed, Stylist, Delicious, and Sainsbury’s Magazine.

Torie True is the author of ‘Chilli & Mint: Indian Home Cooking from a British Kitchen’ which was shortlisted for a ‘Gourmand World Cookbook Award’. Her love of Indian food really grew exponentially after meeting her British Indian husband in her early twenties, followed by many trips to India over the years – learning from family members, home cooks and chefs. She has learnt how delicious, healthy and straightforward Indian cooking in the home can be and now shares her passion for the cuisine with others at her Indian cooking classes, mainly in her home in London, which also include a spice tour to neighbouring Tooting before the cooking gets underway back at her house. She is a member of the Guild of Food Writers.
