Hannah Jackson, A Shepherd's Journey

Hannah Jackson, A Shepherd's Journey


The Red Shepherdess tells her story

Hannah Jackson, aka The Red Shepherdess, is a lambing and farming contractor, TV personality, and one of the farming industry’s youngest and most influential role models. She has appeared on BBC One’s Countryfile and regularly advocates for the farming community. Her uplifting memoir describes how she broke the stereotypes of her Liverpudlian “townie” childhood, faced up to life’s challenges and followed her dreams with hard graft to become a shepherd with her own flock of sheep on an idyllic Cumbrian farm. Join us for an inspiring hour of conversation about everything from nurturing one’s determination and cultivating an optimistic mind-set, to the realities of lambing season and the rigours (and rewards) of sheepdog training.
