Celebrating the Seasons with the Yorkshire Shepherdess
A stunning book from Amanda Owen – shepherdess, wife, mother of nine children, bestselling author and star of C5’s Our Yorkshire Farm – that brings her world to life in glorious colour.
In Celebrating the Seasons, Amanda shares funny and charming stories about life with her family and their many four-legged charges and describes their activities at Ravenseat, from lambing and shearing to haymaking and feeding the flock in midwinter. Her gorgeous photographs showcase the famous Swaledale landscape she writes about, from the sweeping moors to rare wildflowers and the elusive hares glimpsed in the field.
She lives in tune with nature and Amanda's attitude to food is the same. She believes in buying good, seasonal ingredients when it comes to feeding her family and includes her favourite recipes here, from wild garlic lamb with hasselback roast potatoes to rhubarb and custard crumble cake and Yorkshire curd tart.
As inspirational as Amanda herself, this book is a beautiful keepsake that will delight everyone who has followed her adventures so far.
