  Amanda Owen Tales From The Farm The Yorkshire Shepherdess SIGNED COPY   Product Information

Amanda Owens fourth book, published March 2021.

Hardback, signed copy.  We are unable to fulfill any requests for personalised books.

A charming evocative collection of Amanda Owen's columns in The Dalesman magazine, describing life on the farm for her family.  For everyone who loves watching Amanda Owen and her family on Our Yorkshire Farm, or enjoys reading her best selling books comes this delightful and uplifting collection of her monthly Dalesman columns.

In Tales from the Farm by the Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda takes readers on an evocative journey to Ravenseat, where she lives with husband Clive and their nine children, not to mention their flock of sheep, herd of cows, hardworking dogs and a formidable chicken called Linda.  Covering events in 2019 and 2020 Amanda describes saving the life of a new born calf on New Years Eve and watching, mouth agape, as their livestock trailer was swept away by floodwater in March.  Son Sidney braves the wrath of Linda and husband Clive crafts an unusual Valentine's Day Gift.  Eldest daughter Raven leaves the nest headed for university, while young sheepdog Taff and Tony the pony arrive at the farm. 

As COVID -19 sends the country into lockdown, Amanda feels more lucky than ever to live close to nature, finding happiness in the beauty of the Dales and the unchanging routines of the farming year.  Illustrated with charming line-drawings throughout, this book is the perfect gift for fans of the Owen family and a chance to catch up on their adventure.

  Amanda Owen A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess SIGNED COPY   Product Information
Amanda Owen's second book.

Paperback, signed copy.

Every day at Ravenseat, a remote Yorkshire hill farm, brings new adventures for shepherdess Amanda Owen, her husband Clive and their children.  In her latest book Amanda describes how they live in tune with the age-old cycles of a farming year as they tend to their sheep on some of the country's highest, bleakest moors.  Writing with her trademark warmth and humour, Amanda also reveals how nine-year-old MIles got his first flock, Rueben took up the flugelhorn and how she gave birth to a new baby girl.  She is touched by the epic two-day journey of a ewe determined to find her lamb and gives a new home to an ageing neglects horse.  Meanwhile, Clive is almost arrested on a midnight stakeout to catch a sheep-worrying dog and becomes the object of affection for a randy young bull.  Beautifully evoking the landscape of the Dales and the hardy folk who farm there, A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess will delight everyone who has dreamed of living close to nature.

Amanda Owen's third book.

 Paperback, signed copy.

 

Amanda Owen loves her traditional life on her hill farm alongside her nine children and husband Clive.  And, as readers of her previous bestsellers will know, every day at Ravenseat brings surprises.  In Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda takes us from her family's desperate race to save a missing calf to finding her bra has been repurposed as a house martin's nest, through to the brutal winter of 2018 that almost brought her to her knees.  As busy as she is with her family and flock, though, an exciting new project soon catches her eye... Ravenseat is a tenant farm and may not stay in the family, so when Amanda discovers a nearby farmhouse up for sale, she knows it is her chance to create roots.  The old house needs a lot of renovation and money is tight, so Amanda sets about the work herself, with some help from a travelling monk, a visiting plumber and Clive.  It's fair to say things do not go according to plan!  Funny, evocative and set in a remote and beautiful landscape, this book will delight anyone who has hankered after a new life in the country.
