Amanda Owen and her husband Clive Owen along with their nine children will be missing from Channel 5 screens for the foreseeable future after the latest series of Our Yorkshire Farm came to an end. However, in an episode from earlier on in the season, The Yorkshire Shepherdess detailed the importance of teaching her children about life on the farm. 

Amanda and Clive share Raven, 20, Reuben, 17, Miles, 15, Edith, 12, Violet, 10, Sidney, nine, Annas, seven, Clemmy, five, and four-year-old Nancy. 

In the instalment, voiceover Ralf Little explained: “It’s mid-April and the first day back for the children after their Easter break.

“And with her siblings on the way to school, Nancy is helping her parents who are halfway through lambing.

“Amanda is only too aware her youngest is growing up fast and will join her siblings on the school bus soon.”

Nancy helped her mum by bottle-feeding a lamb who wasn’t receiving enough milk from her mother. 

Amanda commented: “Nancy is coming into her own she’s found her voice this year.

“We’ve had far more adult conversations while she’s been coming around with me because there hasn’t been anyone else to talk to.

“If I don’t invest a little bit of time in showing them the ropes then there will never be a time when I can sit back and let them do it.

“Of course the focus now is on Nancy because she’s the only one here so she’s getting one-to-one she’s doing good.”

Amanda noticed two lambs were struggling and asked Nancy to carry one of the animals into a different barn.

“The lamb is so heavy it’s making me tired,” Nancy quipped.

“We’re going to get the milk off that one and give it to that lamb so if I get a jug and hold the lamb will you help milk her?” Amanda asked.

Amanda asked Nancy to bring the two lambs into the house and put them by the fire.

“She stands her best chance of survival by having an hour or two in the warm,” she explained. 

Voiceover Ralf observed: “Shadowing her mum has given Nancy the confidence to step up just as her older brothers and sisters have in previous years.”

“This might be the first lambing season Nancy remembers because she’s out and about,” Clive said.

“I think she’s had a lovely time,” the Yorkshire farmer added.

Our Yorkshire Farm viewers were devastated when the final episode of the most recent series aired. 

The famous family will now be off screens for a while but will most likely return with a brand new series next year.
