Amanda Owen’s first project since the cancellation of Our Yorkshire Farm is finally set to air this month, and after months of anticipation, Channel 4 has finally revealed the show’s release date.
Airing on More 4 very, very, soon, Amanda Owen’s Farming Lives will see the nation’s favourite shepherdess travel across the UK to lift the lid on what life on the farm is like for other families.
Fans are very familiar with what the Owens’ life at Ravenseat is like already, and now, Amanda is set to take the fly-on-the-wall to other farms in the country, too.
The synopsis for the first episode, which airs Wednesday 25th January, reads: “The famous shepherdess visits farms across the country and immerses herself in the day-to-day lives of the farmers, starting in Shetland.
“Kirsty and Aimee own a coastal farm at the northernmost tip of the UK and welcome Amanda to come join them to learn what it’s like cattle farming in such an isolated setting and to give her a taste of Shetland fare”.
Viewers can expect stunning landscapes, unique lifestyles and an insight into rural farming work, while Amanda gets stuck in to learn more about the trials and tribulations other farmers face.
Upon the show’s official announcement last October, Amanda said: “This series will show what life’s really like for farmers in 2022. To the outside world, it might seem like some farmers have it made, with large plots of land and expensive machinery but, as ever, the truth is much more complex.
“I want to explore just what it means to be a farmer today, in a world where so much more is expected of us than ‘just’ being food providers. Along the way I know I’m going to meet some extraordinary, dedicated people and hear some incredible stories in the most beautiful of settings.”
The series will consist of six episodes, and will mark Amanda’s official departure from the family TV show. Each week, Amanda will visit a different farm, immersing herself in both their lives and their businesses for the week.
Keen fans can still get their fix on Ravenseat, however, with Clive and Reuben’s show, Beyond The Yorkshire Farm – which is currently airing on Channel 5.
Watch Amanda Owen’s Farming Lives at 9pm on Wednesdays, starting 25th January.
