Our Yorkshire Farm followed Amanda Owen, her husband Clive Owen and their clan of nine children as they let Channel 5, into their home and gave viewers an insight into the hardships of balancing family life with the responsibilities of the farm. However, after receiving criticism the Shepherdess finally hit back.

Amanda recently joined singer Sophie Ellis Bexter for an episode of her Spotify podcast, Spinning Plates.

When asked about reactions from viewers, she revealed: “It does feel like a responsibility to be what you say you are.

“Once you have the cameras in or photographers, it very easy to slip into the trying to tidy up around the edges and make everything just so,” she explained.

Amanda hit back at critics with a statement about authenticity: “But there’s a limit, there is a limit as to how much stuff you can actually chuck through a door, shove under your sofa or hide behind your cushion.”

The family lives in one of the most remote parts of the country on 2000 acres of land with a flock of 1,000 sheep.

Whilst viewers saw Amanda lead a busy life, they also witnessed the children pull their weight and help out around the farm.

As the youngsters aren’t permitted to own televisions or phones, the stewardess highly encouraged them to explore the outdoors.

In the interview, Amanda continued: “We are as we are, and it’s kind of important that you are genuine.

Speaking on the reaction of viewers she stated: “I like the fact that there is that interest and what you see is what you get.”

With 1,000 sheep, 40 cows, six dogs and four ponies, Amanda has received criticism from viewers for allowing her children to go horseback riding.

In the past, she posted photos on social media of her children bareback riding and after receiving complaints in the comments, she defended her choices with a video of her daughter Clemmy sharing words of wisdom.

Amanda first met her husband Clive in 1995 when she was 21 and he was 42 running his own farm.

As she was in training to become a shepherdess she went knocking on his door to ask for a male sheep.

Amanda previously admitted the relationship was a ‘slow burn’ as they were friends before any romantic feelings and despite the age gap the pair fell in love and got married five years later.

Unfortunately, little is known about Clive as he prefers to keep away from the limelight.

The couple went on to give birth nine times to their children – Raven, 20, Reuben, 17, Miles, 15, Edith, 12, Violet, ten, Sidney, nine, Anna, seven, Clemmie, five, and Nancy, four.

Their eldest daughter Raven has left the farm and is currently at university studying to become a vet.

The upcoming season of Our Yorkshire Farm is likely to follow the Owen Family as they move out of Raveseast Farm for the first time.

They have already purchased a new cottage but have decided against moving in until refurbishment is complete

Our Yorkshire Farm is available on Channel 5’s catch-up service My5.
