Amanda has been seen by millions of viewers of ITV's The Dales living and working at Ravenseat, a hill farm of 2,000 acres which she shares with 900 sheep, seven children, four dogs and one husband. Not to mention chickens, pigs, cows, horses, an uncontrollable goat and a vole who has taken up residence in the living room. And she couldn't be happier.
Growing up in industrial Huddersfield, Amanda wanted nothing more than to be a shepherdess. In this delightful memoir she reveals how she achieved her dream. She was a broke but happy contract shepherdess when she fell for, and married, farmer Clive Owen at Ravenseat . . . Soon she was not only trying to fit in with the locals, but was fitting in motherhood too. Along the way, she and Clive have dealt with the tragedy of foot and mouth disease, the joy of breeding a champion tup, and the challenges of raising children in such a remote location. They live a traditional life ruled by the seasons, from the peace of winter, when they are cut off by snow, to spring's busy lambing season and the backbreaking tasks of summertime - haymaking and sheepshearing.
Funny, heart-warming and packed with unforgettable characters - both human and animal - The Yorkshire Shepherdess will inspire you to look at the countryside and those who work there with new appreciation.
