Shepherdess Amanda Owen to explore farmers’ lives for More4

  • News

Amanda OwenShepherdess and author Amanda Owen is to front a new series for More4 in which she explores the lives of farmers across the UK.

Leeds-based Wise Owl Films is making the six x 60 show, which sees Owen visit a variety of farms – some long-established over generations and others run by families with no previous farming experience. Many of the farms have had to diversify to tackle economic challenges. 

Owen said: “This series will show what life’s really like for farmers in 2022. To the outside world, it might seem like some farmers have it made, with large plots of land and expensive machinery but, as ever, the truth is much more complex. 

“I want to explore just what it means to be a farmer today, in a world where so much more is expected of us than ‘just’ being food providers. Along the way I know I’m going to meet some extraordinary, dedicated people and hear some incredible stories in the most beautiful of settings.”

Mark Robinson, creative director of Wise Owl Films and executive producer of the series, said: “Alongside Amanda, we want to celebrate Britain’s farmers and their contribution to all of our lives by meeting farmers with inspirational stories to tell. 

“Just like everyone else, they are affected by what’s going on in the world around them – whether it’s the real-world economics of something like Brexit, climate change, or challenges that have been more personal and even closer to home.”

The series producer is James Knight.
