Britain’s most famous shepherdess is on a mission. And on Amanda Owen’s Farming Lives, the best-selling author and mother of nine crisscrosses the UK to immerse herself in the day-to-day life of six very different farms that have had to diversify to survive.

Showcasing some the country’s most breathtaking landscapes—and celebrating inter-generational legacies of survival and adaptation—Amanda learns what it takes to be a modern-day farmer, all while lending a helping hand with the ploughing, milking, herding, and harvesting. Amid complex factors like Brexit, climate change, and global supply chains, these are inspiring stories of hardy farming families determined to keep their businesses going—no matter what.
