I've read all of Amanda's other books and have really enjoyed them. Tales from the Farm is a collection of Amanda's work written for the Dalesman magazine. This book includes entries from September 2019 to February 2021. I love Amanda's tales of the farm, animals and family. A really lovely book which I thoroughly enjoyed. ...more

Read this book in less than a day- so easy to read and compliments well 'our Yorkshire farm' and Amanda's other books. Really enjoyable and insightful-containing moments of laughter but also vivid realism. Amanda really captures all the joys of her colourful farming life with her nine children and gives you a month by month account featuring elements of her daily life and her essence of living in such a remote area. Would recommend to anyone looking for a light hearted and easy read. ...more

I previously read The Yorkshire Shepherdess by Amanda Owen and loved reading about her life on the farm with her large family. This is her most recent book written in monthly chapters from 2019 to early 2021, describing the changing seasons and the changes within the farm including how fast her nine children have grown with the eldest daughter having left home to go to University.
I loved this short read ( 192 pages ) and would recommend it. A real feel good read.

Again a fantastic Book for Amanda Owens, about her life on the Farm, anyone who has seen her and her family on Channel 5 UK Should read this along with her other stories. Her and Clive have a lovely well rounded family I look forward to ore stories Amanda when you have the time. A big Thank ////you.

I love Amanda Owen. There, I've said it, without a trace of embarrassment. I spent this afternoon with Our Yorkshire Farm on the TV in the background while I read this book. Utterly joyful (although I did have a sob at the news of Bill's demise). Thankyou again Amanda, Clive and family for bringing joy into so many lives. ...more

Inspiring Amanda

I like the way Amanda gives each child a mention,her honesty, humorous anecdotes, descriptions of countryside making one feel present with her. She makes light of the human strength,physical and mental, that is necessary to be a mother of nine, farmer caring for livestock, wife, author and star of her own TV show. Well done Amanda.

Shelves: non-fiction
The daily life of a Yorkshire Shepherdess high up on the Yorkshire Moors is never boring, there is always something or someone who needs her attention. You are drawn into her life with husband and children and of course the sheep and other animals on the farm.
Thoroughly enjoyed this and look forward to reading more x

I always enjoy reading about Amanda and her brood on their farm. This book, albeit short, shows a slightly more developed writing style than her previous works. There is nothing much new if you have watched her TV programme, but a comfort to read nonetheless and I even cried at one point

I love Amanda Owen and her lovely family. This book was over too quickly. I feel as though I know Amanda and Clive and have ordered “The Dalesman “ to keep up with all their antics. Note to John Stokoe don’t forget Amanda’s raise!

Another enjoyable read

Good to find out how the Owen family are dealing with a more isolating year owing to the Covid 19 pandemic.

A short enjoyable read. I have read most of Amanda's other books so it is more of the same, which causes me no complaint. ...more

As usual, books by Amanda Owen are the perfect cosy reads that balance the harshness of farming with the lightness of family stories.
