In this frank, funny and informative new show, Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen shares heart-warming tales and honest anecdotes from her remarkable farming, family life in North Yorkshire. Ruled by animals and the four seasons, it’s a way of life that has almost disappeared in today’s modern world.
We’ll hear how Amanda grew up in Huddersfield but was inspired by James Herriot’s books to leave her town life behind and head to the countryside.
Accompanied by some of Amanda’s wonderful photography, we’ll experience the highs and lows of the farming year. In 2018, these included the extremes of the Beast from the East and one of the hottest summers on record. Ravenseat is a tenant farm and may not stay in the family so when Amanda saw a nearby farmhouse up for sale, she knew it was her chance to create roots for the next generation.
The old house needed a lot of renovation and money was tight. With impressive resourcefulness, however, Amanda set about the work with some help from the family, a visiting plumber and a travelling monk. It’s fair to say things did not go according to plan.
We’ll hear how Amanda juggles life as a shepherdess, home renovator and mother to nine children with life as a best-selling author. Funny, charming and filled with unforgettable characters, Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess will delight anyone who has dreamt of a new life in the country.
Amanda is a shepherdess, hill farmer, writer, photographer, public speaker and mother of nine.
After working as a freelance dairy milker and alpaca shearer, she eventually settled down as a shepherdess at Ravenseat, one of the highest and most remote places in England. Here she has raised a flock of 1,000 sheep and a family of nine children with husband Clive.
After being featured in the popular ITV series The Dales, Amanda began documenting her farming life. She later published three bestselling books:
- The Yorkshire Shepherdess in 2014.
- A Year in the Life of The Yorkshire Shepherdess in 2016.
- The Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess in 2019.
Amanda and her family also currently feature in Channel 5’s popular documentary series Our Yorkshire Farm (series three started in July 2020).
