Amanda Owen, 47, and her family have captivated audiences with their reality series Our Yorkshire Farm. The shepherdess is among the famous faces who have found success with documenting farming life with Jeremy Clarkson, 61, debuting his own series.

Clarkson’s Farm launched on Amazon Prime in June and it reportedly took the former Top Gear presenter two years to complete the series.

The first series saw Britain’s most unlikely farmer Jeremy, spend a year attempting to learn the workings of his farm, Diddly Squat, aided by a host of hilarious characters.

Jeremy has previously praised Amanda after he ran into a few problems working on his Oxfordshire Farm.

The Grand Tour presenter said he required the shepherdess’ assistance to help him with his “errant flock” of sheep who broke through a neighbour’s electric fence.

Despite his praise, Amanda admitted she has not yet found the time to watch an episode of Clarkson’s Farm.

In a new interview, the mum-of-nine addressed the difficulties of farming life and admitted it’s no easy feat.

Speaking about the gritty realism of the Channel 5 series, Amanda said she relies on her husband Clive Owen to update her on other farming shows.

She told Farmer’s Weekly: “I’m terrible as I haven’t watched Clarkson’s Farm or This Farming Life, so I have to go on what Clive says as he watches them.”

Amanda also touched on how engaging productions allow the farming community to tell a story.

She said: “It doesn’t really matter how a message is put out there. It’s starting up a conversation without preaching.”

The Channel 5 favourite also said she feels there are two types of audiences who watch Our Yorkshire Farm.

The shepherdess addressed the challenges of filming the latest series, with the help of her children, during the lockdown.

“It was a challenge certainly, but in a way, it was one of those challenges where it was an opportunity to showcase what you actually do,” Amanda told the same publication.

“I feel like our programme is watched by two distinct types of people: those who know and those who don’t.

“And if you can keep both watching, then you’re doing something right.”

Elsewhere, Amanda recently took to Instagram to share a photo with her family, including her rarely-seen husband Clive.

The Our Yorkshire Farm star announced in the post that her book, Celebrating the Seasons with the Yorkshire Shepherdess, was number three in The Times’ bestseller list.

In view of her 419,000 followers, Amanda captioned the post, which featured a rare snap of her other half: “They’re my number 1.

“We’ve had plenty of number 2’s to deal with and now we have a number 3!

“Absolutely stunned to learn that my book is at number 3 in @thetimes bestseller charts.”
