Wise Owl Directs Amanda Owen’s Farming Series Prolific North

Amanda Owen from our Yorkshire Farm hosts a new series about the UK farming industry.

Directed by Leeds-based Wise Owl Films, Amanda Owen’s Extraordinary Farming Lives will air on More4.

Over the course of 6 episodes, Owen will visit a number of farms that have branched out to earn a living. She will see those that have been passed down from generation to generation, and some that have been taken over by families totally new to rural life.

“This series will show what life for farmers is really like in 2022. To the outside world, it may seem like some farmers have done it, with large plots of land and expensive machinery, but, as always, the truth is much more complex. she explained.

“I want to explore what it means to be a farmer today, in a world where so much more is expected of us than to be ‘just’ providers of food. Along the way, I know I will meet amazing, dedicated people and hear incredible stories in the most beautiful of settings.

Mark Robinson, creative director of Wise Owl Films, said it was a “celebration of British farmers and their contribution to all of our lives”.

“Like everyone else, they are affected by what is happening in the world around them – whether it’s the real economy of something like Brexit, climate change or challenges that have been more personal and even closer to home.”

The series was commissioned by Jo Street, Head of Daytime and Features and Jayne Stanger, Managing Editor of Daytime and Features. The producer of the series is James Knight.

“Amanda brings all of her farming and television experience to this fascinating and celebratory new show. I’m thrilled to have her bring her charm and warmth to More4 where I’m sure our audience will love following her adventures on amazing farms across the country,” Stanger said.
