Celebrating the Seasons with the Yorkshire Shepherdess – Amanda Owen

March 20 @ 7:00 pm


Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen shares heart-warming tales and honest anecdotes from her remarkable farming, family life in North Yorkshire. It’s a life that has almost gone in today’s modern world, one ruled by animals and the four seasons. Accompanied by some of Amanda’s wonderful photography, we’ll experience the highs and lows of the farming year. Part photography book, part recipe book and part memoir, Celebrating the Seasons includes over 200 stunning photographs taken by Amanda showcasing the bleak and beautiful landscape she calls home, opening up a window into a life lived on one of the country’s highest, wildest moors – land so inaccessible that in places it can only be reached on foot. Amanda’s love of photography came out of a desire to keep a lasting record of family life on the farm – taking natural, honest and spontaneous pictures of spectacular scenery, and providing a real insight into the unique joys and challenges of daily life.

After being featured in the popular ITV Series “The Dales”, Amanda began documenting the fascinating story of her farming life, before publishing four bestselling books: The Yorkshire Shepherdess in 2014, A Year in the Life of The Yorkshire Shepherdess in 2016, The Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess in 2019 and Tales From The Farm in spring 2021. Amanda and her family also currently feature in Channel 5’s hugely popular documentary series “Our Yorkshire Farm”, which achieved ratings of between 3.5 million and 4 million viewers each week when series 4 recently aired.

Amanda will be in conversation with Elly Fioretini from BBC Radio York.
