Tales From the Farm by the Yorkshire Shepherdess [9781529074758]

(8 reviews) Write a Review

For everyone who loves watching Amanda and her family on Our Yorkshire Farm or enjoys reading her bestselling books comes a delightful and uplifting collection of her Dalesman columns.

In her new book Amanda takes readers on an evocative journey to Ravenseat, where she lives with husband Clive and their nine children, not to mention their flock of sheep, herd of cows, hardworking dogs and a formidable chicken called Linda.

Covering events in 2019 and 2020, Amanda describes saving the life of a newborn calf on New Year's Eve and watching, mouth agape, as their livestock trailer was swept away by floodwater in March. Son Sidney braves the wrath of Linda and husband Clive crafts an unusual Valentine's Day gift.

Eldest daughter Raven leaves the nest, headed for university, while young sheepdog Taff and Tony the Pony arrive at the farm.

Above all, Amanda, Clive and their children find joy in a traditional life that is simple but rewarding, tied in to the unchanging routines of the farming year, and lets them live close to nature.

Illustrated with charming line-drawings throughout, this book is the perfect gift for fans of the Owens family and a chance to catch up on their latest adventures.


AUTHOR: Amanda Owen grew up in Huddersfield but was inspired by the James Herriot books to leave her town life behind and head to the countryside. After working as a freelance shepherdess, cow milker and alpaca shearer, she eventually settled down as a farmer’s wife with her own flock of sheep at Ravenseat. Happily married with nine children, she wouldn’t change a thing about her hectic but rewarding life. She and her family are the subject of Channel 5’s Our Yorkshire Farm and have appeared in ITV’s The Dales and in Ben Fogle’s New Lives in the Wild. Voted Yorkshirewoman of the Year by the Dalesman magazine, she is also the author of the top-ten bestsellers The Yorkshire Shepherdess and A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess.
