Amanda Owen - You're Booked

This week we are delighted to present a fascinating conversation with Amanda Owen, better known as The Yorkshire Shepherdess! Amanda is the star of the glorious, incredibly popular television series Our Yorkshire Farm, about her rural life in the Dales and also the author of five books, with the most recent being Celebrating the Seasons, about life with her family at Ravenseat Farm, plus a number of delicious recipes. Amanda told us about her collection of antiquated books on agriculture, the book that set her onto her shepherding path, the reads she has shared with her children, a couple of pleas for loaned books to be returned and an unimaginable end for her copy of Judy Blume's Forever. Find out more about the books mentioned on the episode by visiting our shop.
