The Yorkshire Shepherdess previously joined James Martin on his Saturday morning cooking show to debate her busy life working on the farm and keeping a house running. Amanda lives on Ravenseat farm together with her nine children, who often become involved with the chores and helping with the animals. Asked how the farm has modified since she first arrived searching for a tup a few years ago, Amanda remarked Clive can be “shocked” by just how different it’s.
James began: “I’m within the kitchen with the Yorkshire Shepherdess herself, yes, we’ve finally got her down from Yorkshire to Hampshire in my kitchen, it’s the fabulous Amanda Owen.
“I’m going to do you a dish that is nice for a family, but your loved ones is what number of on the last count?”
Amanda laughed: “Nine children, and it was a hungry family as well, James!”
“So you might be cooking for 11 on daily basis, each day?” asked the chef.

Amanda explained: “I probably have, should you could see right into a crystal ball to see where we are actually, he can be quite surprised.
“He has definitely got his head across the old pasta bake, and things are obviously busy, but it surely is nice.”
Keen to search out out more in regards to the pair, who’ve since separated, James asked: “How did you meet? Are you a rustic bumpkin or are you a towny?”
Pleased with her heritage, Amanda revealed: “Nope, I’m from Huddersfield, and it was all a sheep’s fault, most things in life actually are where I’m from.

“I actually was milking cows over in Cumbria, and I used to be sent on a mission to go borrow a ram, so I went to choose up a ram and met Clive, and that’s where all of it began, that was 1996.
“But it surely has been a steep learning curve because then, after all, I ended up going to Ravenseat and marrying a person who will just about present me with half a bullock as a present, so you’ve gotten to go from zero to hero in a short time,” she joked.
James prodded: “What was that just like the transition for you? Since it will need to have been a hell of a shock, were you used to it?
“You were into farming anyway, but that transition to where it’s, it’s a fairly distant a part of the world.”
Explaining how she felt, Amanda explained: “It is vitally distant, it’s built as one among the very best remotest hill farms in England, and I mean it’s a difficult place at the most effective of times.
“There’s a certain quantity you’ve gotten to adapt to the ways of the place, and it definitely moulds your whole character.
“I believe self-sufficiency must be one among the important thing things that you’ve gotten to get your head around, and every part shouldn’t be at hand.
” your just about there doing all of your things, and you’ve gotten to work with the produce and what you’ve gotten got.”
James Martin airs Saturday from 9:30am on ITV.
