Amanda Owen and her family live a life that has almost gone, one ruled by the seasons and her animals. Home is Ravenseat, a 2,000 acre hill farm at the head of Swaledale, one of the highest, most remote places in England. Her first book, is a funny, heart-warming and uplifting account of her transformation from Huddersfield townie to rural sheep farmer. She has since penned A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess and appeared on numerous TV shows.
Amanda will be in conversation with Elly Fiorentini of BBC Radio York.
