Amanda Owen, aka The Yorkshire Shepherdess was the special guest on the first day of Countryside Live in Harrogate.

In this video, she talks about how her two worlds, of farming and being in the public eye collide and how she hopes she inspires people with her tales of life as a mother-of-nine and farmer with 1,000 sheep in the upper reaches of the Yorkshire Dales.
