Our Yorkshire Farm’s Amanda Owen on heartbreaking loss at Ravenseat ‘I’m pathetic’

“You have to put it behind you, you can’t dwell on it. Just recently we lost a ewe that had two lambs at foot.

“You can’t shepherd or farm without accepting you are going to lose animals. It is part of the job.”

Speaking about the hardest and most rewarding thing about living in such a remote part of Yorkshire, Amanda continued: “You can lose yourself and distance yourself from everyone and everything.

“Once I go out of that door to work it is back to basics. My home life is busy and chaotic, but my work life is solitary.”
