After an abrupt end to the last series, Our Yorkshire Farm graced our screens once again last night with the start of the new series five. Channel 5’s hit show follows shepherdess Amanda, Clive and their nine children on their remote hill farm Ravenseat in the Yorkshire Dales.
But, whilst the nation was glued to their screens watching the antics of the Owen family up in the Dales, the family were struggling with a complete power outage.
The Yorkshire Shepherdess, Amanda Owen posted on Instagram saying:
“WE MISSED #OurYorkshireFarm !
No electricity @northernpowergrid ⚡️ 🕯
*The irony of being on 📺 tv twice today @bbcbreakfast this morning & @channel5_tv #ouryorkshirefarm tonight but not actually being able to watch the tv*”.
Even though the Owen family didn’t get a chance to see it, viewers were excited to see Our Yorkshire Farm back on their screens after what feels a lifetime since the last series.
One Instagram user commented on the post saying: “It was amazing!!! Nancy was greats with the camera.”
Whilst another wrote: “you and your family are a joy! With all this madness in the world it’s fantastic to see that life really does go on! You’re all amazing!”.
Whilst the Owen family struggled with the blackout last night, the viewers got a glimpse of the extreme pressures of life on the farm during a blizzard in lockdown in the fifth series of Our Yorkshire Farm.
As well as homeschooling the kids had to juggle the responsibilities of caring for the animals on the farm. Seven-year-old Annie and five-year-old Clammie helped their mum with a pregnant herd whilst nine-year-old Violet looked after the newest arrival Misty.
