We're delighted to announce that More4 have commissioned a new series fronted by Yorkshire Shepherdess, Amanda Owen. Over the course of 6 episodes, Amanda explores the realities of life for farmers in 2022 and experiences first hand how they've diversified to earn a living and run a successful business. Set amongst some of the UK’s most breath-taking landscapes, Amanda discovers what makes each business tick as she immerses herself in their working lives – including farms passed down through the generations, others that have been taken on by families totally new to rural life and farms that have battled for survival, whether against the elements, COVID or BSE. Amanda Owen's Extraordinary Farming Lives was commissoned by Jo Street, Head of Daytime and Features and Jayne Stanger, commissioning editor, Daytime and Features and is produced by Leeds-based Wise Owl Films.
