The Yorkshire Shepherdess
Amanda Owen talks about her life as a shepherdess at Ravenseat, a remote Yorkshire hill farm, and traces the highs and lows of living and working on a 2000-acre farm in Swaledale, , alongside her 1000 sheep and 9 children and husband, Clive.. She describes the age-old cycles of the farming year and the constant challenges she faces. Her stories abound with warmth and humour that bring the countryside alive. This evening will certainly show what multitasking actually means
Originally from Huddersfield, Amanda Owen was inspired by the James Herriot books to leave the town behind her and become a shepherdess in one of the most remote areas of Britain. It’s a challenging life that has almost disappeared in today’s world, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. She also finds time to present Countrywise on ITV and has 35,000 followers on Twitter.
