From teenage Goth in Huddersfield to rural sheep farmer…
Star of the C5 series, Our Yorkshire Farm, Amanda Owen grew up in Huddersfield but was inspired by the James Herriot books to find work as a shepherdess, cow milker and alpaca shearer. Today, she runs a 2,000-acre sheep farm at Ravenseat in the Yorkshire Dales, along with her husband Clive and nine children.
A Sunday Times bestselling author, Amanda has entertained readers with her trademark Yorkshire grit and humour in The Yorkshire Shepherdess and A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess. Her latest book, Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess, is an uplifting and inspiring update on life on the farm, from facing the brutal winter of 2018 to renovating an old farmhouse as a new family home.
Voted ‘Yorkshirewoman of the Year’ by The Dalesman magazine, Amanda has also appeared on ITV’s Countrywise and The Dales, and in Ben Fogle’s New Lives in the Wild.
Amanda will be interviewed by BBC Radio York presenter Jeremy Buxton at this fun and entertaining event for Mother’s Day.
