Hoskins, when I asked you to design a rotavator to fit our tractor, that wasn't quite what I had in mind...

Surely if it's a tractor engine, it should be at the back?

A smarter way to keep the frost off the asparagus plants, doesn't need a pilot licence and the hover height is consistent.

Not so good for cherry trees, though.

Hoskins finally realised the newsagent had made a mistake with his order of 'Build you own helicopter in 500 weekly installments'....somewhere around week 250!

...luckily the farmer next door had the same problem with his tractor project!

There is new hope for farmers who keep getting lost in their maize fields.

On the set for Clarkson's Farm, new evidence is spotted that Jeremy is going rogue once more.

“It’s OK, it suits me….I’m a really agricultural pilot”


“That’s really asking to buy the farm!”
