YEAR IN THE LIFE OF THE YORKSHIRE SHEPHERDESS, A

Synopsis

Ravenseat is the remote Yorkshire hill farm that Amanda Owen shares with husband Clive, eight children and 900 sheep. She describes the age-old cycles of a farming year and the constant challenges the family face, from being cut off in winter to tending their flock on some of Yorkshire's highest, bleakest moors - land so inaccessible that in places it can be reached only on foot.
