Amanda Owen is a shepherdess, farmer’s wife, mother to nine children, a passionate photographer and Sunday Times bestselling author. The Owens live a life that has almost disappeared in today's world, one ruled by the seasons and their animals. Home is Ravenseat, a 2000-acre hill farm at the
head of Swaledale, one of the highest and most remote places in England.
Amanda has written three funny, heartwarming and inspiring books about her transformation from Huddersfield townie to rural sheep farmer, and in 2018 her family became stars of their very own Channel 5 TV series, Our Yorkshire Farm, which was the channel's highest rated factual show of the year.
Amanda appears ‘in conversation’, delighting anyone who has dreamt of a new life in the country with her insightful opinions on farming and her good-humoured, plain-speaking attitude to life.
