Our love for Amanda Owen and Our Yorkshire Farm has grown, as had the nation’s – and, with it, comes the fascination about the world in which they live. It seems like the most idyllic life! Working of the land and working together in a harmonious way. The Owen’s family, who owns Ravenseat Farm.
Most kids don’t have half the knowledge the Owens family have picked up by the time they start school – and it’s made us think about the way in which we live our lives.
The hit Channel 5 show that documents the lives of Amanda, Clive and their 9 children hit our screens in 2018 and has fast become the channel’s top-rated show.
Narrate by Ben Fogle is focuses on ‘The Yorkshire Shepherdess’, Amanda Owen and her family as they go about their daily lives on the farm – from learning life skills like churning butter, looking after cattle and supporting training exercises for rescue operations. Each thing that they do Amanda can relate to how it helps them in their development.
A lot of people have started to question if the Owens own their farm and the simple answer is yes. They own Ravenseat Farm where they live with their children, but according to The Express the estate is owned by billionaire Robert Miller who is the co-founder of DFS (Duty-Free Shops).
Amanda and Clive, who owns Ravenseat Farm house, have been on the farm for more than 20 years and continue to keep the traditions of farming as it has been done for hundreds of years.
If you fancy seeing the beautiful area for yourself, you can actually stay a night at the Ravenseat Farm. The Owens offer up a peaceful retreat in their Shepherds Hut on the premises. You can enjoy your own private stay beside a beautiful waterfall with your nearest and dearest.
