AMANDA OWEN, farmer’s wife, shepherdess, mother of nine “free range” children (six daughters, three sons aged 3-18), co-carer of 1,000 sheep, cattle, horses and seven dogs, best selling author, passionate photographer and seasonal seller of cream teas, will be speaking during the morning session at our Annual Council Meeting in March.
Her home is a remote 2,000 acre hill farm on the banks of the delight- fully named Whitsundale Beck at the head of Swaledale, North Yorkshire.
Amanda (44) published her first book, which told of her transformation from Huddersfield townie to rural sheep farmer, in 2014. More books followed, each achieving a place in the Sunday Times’ best sellers’ list, and in 2018 the family appeared in their own Channel 5 TV programme Our Yorkshire Farm, which became a hit with viewers.
Her insightful opinions on farming and good-humoured, plain-speaking attitude to life make Amanda a very popular public speaker.
There will also be a presentation by NFWI President Lynne Stubbings and a talk and performance by Orpheus College Musicians.
So do come along to Dorking Halls on 16 March for what promises to be another inspiring, enlightening and entertaining day.Tickets are now on sale at £16. What a bargain.
