Channel 5 favourite Our Yorkshire Farm is returning for a fourth series as part of the broadcaster’s commitment to programming in our region.

Our Yorkshire Farm, which features Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen and her husband Clive working on their North Yorkshire farm with their children, was Channel 5’s highest-rated factual programme of 2020.

Its run last year launched in a new 9pm slot which averaged more than three million viewers per episode. The new series will air in the coming months.

Daniel Pearl, commissioning editor at Channel 5 said: “Our Yorkshire Farm is such a special programme. It’s more than just a heart-warming documentary, it is a deeper exploration of family bonds, parenting styles and the desire among so many of us to live closer to nature. The Owens are a true inspiration and I can’t wait to see what these next two years will.”

The series first aired in 2018 with viewers and critics praising Amanda and Clive Owen’s unique style as they raise their nine ‘free-range’ children on their 2,000-acre remote hill farm in the Yorkshire Dales.

Natalie Wilkinson, executive producer at Renegade Pictures said: “As a dedicated production team, we are excited to continue developing the delightful storylines and to maintain our production values, which makes it feel like a beautiful, warm family drama, evolving from an observational documentary.”

Channel 5 has also announced a two-year deal with Wolfsong Media, who are the agent of the Yorkshire Shepherdess, meaning there could be more shows on the horizon.

Jo Cantello, director of Wolfsong Media, added: “We’re thrilled to be working with Channel 5 and the Renegade team again, who have documented the Owen’s unique story in such a captivating way this past five years. We’ve been overwhelmed by the public response to the series and look forward to watching life unfold on the farm over the coming episodes.”

Channel 5 has a series of popular Yorkshire-based programmes. Favourites include the All Creatures Great and Small reboot as well as The Yorkshire Vet.
