Our Yorkshire Farm family is preparing to leave Ravenseat Farm, which is owned by a billionaire.

As the Channel 5 family prepares to depart Ravenseat Farm for a change of scenery, the farm is owned by a billionaire who remains off camera.

The program Channel 5’s Our Yorkshire Farm family is preparing to relocate from Ravenseat to a farm in Upper Swaledale.

After 25 years on the billion-pound estate-owned Ravenseat Farm in Keld, Swaledale, the Owens and their nine children are looking for a change of scenery.

The Ravenseat estate is owned by 88-year-old billionaire and co-founder of Duty Free Shops, Robert Miller.

Ben Fogle narrates the day-to-day living and documentary Yorkshire Farm Family series, which follows first-generation farmers Amanda and Clive Owen through their traditional farm lifestyle and is rated 9.2/10 on IMDb.

Amanda revealed that the family had been intending to buy their own property for some time and that they will be refurbishing it in Anty Johns, Upper Swaledale, barely a mile from their current residence in Ravenseat.

Mrs Owen, often known as The Yorkshire Shepherdess, met her husband Clive on the farm in 1996 and has worked and lived there since since.

Raven, 20, Reuben, 17, Miles, 15, Edith, 12, Violet, 10, Sidney, nine, Annas, seven, Clemmie, five, and Nancy, four, were nurtured on the same farm by their parents.

Viewers can watch as the Yorkshire family goes about their shepherding and farming responsibilities, with their children even as young as six years old helping to maintain farm machinery and rescue each other from blizzards.

The Owens also own and rent out Yorkshire farmhouses to rural vacationers who can have a cream tea. Amanda Owen’s successful works include The Yorkshire Shepherdess, A Year in the Life of The Yorkshire Shepherdess, and The Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess, all published in 2014.

Mrs Owen’s website gives visitors to the farm access to gift items, publications, and her own photography, which she describes as “capturing the constant change of the seasons and the countryside.”

From spring 2022, visitors will be able to visit Ravenseat Farm, which is located at the halfway point of the 182-mile Coast to Coast walk, which runs from St Bees on the Irish Sea to Robin Hood’s Bay on the North Sea coast.
