Jeremy Clarkson praises Kirkland UK machinery

The Kent-based berry harvester and machinery supplier, Kirkland UK, has been featured in season three of Clarkson’s Farm.

The fruit and vineyard machinery dealer specialises in labour-saving machinery, which is what initially caught the eye of Amazon producers.

Scott Worsley, managing director at Kirkland UK, said: ”We were approached by Amazon producers back in spring 2022 about our labour-saving machinery.

”The particular machine that caught their interest was the berry harvester.

”This machine can replace up to 200 pickers a day and is hugely popular with UK berry growers.”

It was a fun-filled day!

The episode in question focuses on reducing the cost for harvesting blackberries, and Jeremy was keen to try the demonstrator.

Mr Worsley continued: ”It was a fun-filled, full-on day! We were helping the crew load the harvester and explaining to Jeremy how the machine works.

”We are also thrilled to have the Antonio Carraro tracked MACH 4 shown on the popular TV series.

In other Clarkson related news, the former Grand Tour star is rumoured to be opening a pub in the Cotswolds, with a the Grade II-listed building set to be the spot.

Located in the picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire, it has recently been put on the market by Stonegate Pub Partners for a retail partnership tenancy.

The site neighbours the brewery that produces Clarkson’s Hawkstone Lager, using spring barley grown on his Diddly Squat Farm.
