How Did Kaleb Cooper Earn His Money?

The company offers various agricultural services to its clients, including disking/cultivating, topping, plowing, and drilling.

These are far from the only facilities provided by Kaleb under his eponymous brand, and the reality TV star is quite proud of his work.
Kaleb Cooper Contracting presently only serves the English county of Oxfordshire and the surrounding regions.

When not caring for contracting needs or tending to his own animals, he is pretty adept at handling a tractor.
In fact, it was Kaleb’s skills with a tractor that got him in contact with Jeremy Clarkson. Before the ‘Top Gear‘ star’s arrival on the 1000-acre farm, Kaleb had worked on his land for three years and knew the area quite well. This led Jeremy to contact him when he realized how taxing cultivating could be. Soon enough, Kaleb became a star in ‘Clarkson’s Farm’ and gained numerous fans. His Instagram has over 1.2 million followers eager to learn more about him.
Apart from his work within the agricultural industry, Kaleb is an integral part of Hawkstone and even has a cider named after him. Not just that, the TV star has taken up the role of an author. His book, ‘The World According to Kaleb,’ is set to be released on April 18, 2023. Currently, Kaleb works as a manager at Clarkson’s Farm and often butts head with his boss, though the two share a close bond.
