Best-selling author, sheep farmer, photographer, public speaker, and mother of 9, Amanda Owen is better known as The Yorkshire Shepherdess. Amanda first came to fame after her family were featured in the popular ITV series The Dales – before releasing her two bestselling books, The Yorkshire Shepherdess and A Year in The Life of The Yorkshire Shepherdess.
Amanda lives up at Ravenseat, a remote hill farm near Swaledale - where it’seeze Web Design Ryedale web consultant Rob Davies first met her when staying in the traditional shepherd’s hut there. After striking up a conversation about his work, Amanda mentioned she was looking for her outdated website to be re-designed.
Amanda had been thinking about doing this for some time, but a hectic schedule of media work, sheep farming, writing, and looking after 9 children had left her with little time for anything else! Her existing website was fairly basic, with pages promoting her shepherd’s hut and holiday lets business, but nothing devoted to The Yorkshire Shepherdess.
