Summary

For everyone who loves watching Amanda Owen and her family on Our Yorkshire Farm, or enjoys 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 listeners 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 from 2019 through to early 2021, Amanda describes saving the life of a newborn calf on New Year's 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 and 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.

Binged the book in night

I’m writing this at 2:15 am on the day after release day. What a book especially for lovers of our Yorkshire farm. I have honestly say as a Yorkshire lass I loved the dialect and can not wait for what is next

Great fun

I love reading Amanda Owen’s books about the Owen Family their adventures in and around Racenseat and the Dales . This was even better as it was read by Amanda Owen herself and that was the authentic voice of her stories

I am a great fan of tge Owen family, but unfortunately this book just rehashed what I had seen on the TV show. Mrs. Owens delivery is poor.

Loved it!

I listened to Tales From The Farm while I was decorating our kitchen. Amanda made me laugh and cry with her delightful diaries, it was like listening to a good friend telling me what was going on in her life. Painting the walls has never been more pleasurable.

Enjoyable listen

I've listened to all of Amanda's books but this one is the best as it's narrated by her. 💜

She makes the routine, enjoyable ...

Amanda Owen is a born story-teller. This is a lovely gentle tale of life in The Dales. The only problem with this book is that it's too short. Write more next time Amanda because I could listen to you all day. And maybe you can personally narrate the next one too?

Easy listening

Narrated by Amanda Owen herself, this collection of articles about life at Ravenseat is enchanting.
