The billionaire owner behind Our Yorkshire Farm Ravenseat estate

Our Yorkshire’s Farm has rocketed in popularity since launching in 2018.

And like with many shows, fans can’t help but get a little invested in the details, with some wondering whether the Owens family really owns the Ravenseat Farm or not.

Amanda and Clive welcome the public into their lives at the farm where they live with their nine children, some who were born at Ravenseat.

But people often wonder whether they actually own the beautiful North Yorkshire farm, Yorkshire Live reports.

For those wondering, The Express reported that the Owens do own Ravenseat Farm where they live with all of their nine children.

However, the estate is actually owned by billionaire Robert Miller who is the co-founder of DFS (Duty Free Shops).

Amanda and Clive have been at the farm for more than 20 years now and continue to proudly farm in the same way as it would have been done hundreds of years prior.

On top of farming and taking care of the land, the Owens have also got to tend to their animals and their children, some of whom were born at Ravenseat.

While this is their actual family home, fans of the show can visit and even stay on the land.

As well as their own home, the Owens have also got a couple of farmhouses which they rent out for holiday-goers.

According to Amanda’s website Yorkshire Shepherdess, there is an option to either stay at Shepherd Hut which is for a maximum of two people or The Firs which is the six-bedroom farmhouse.

A stay at Shepherds Hut will set visitors back £60 for single occupancy and £175 per night at The Firs.

But Amanda is not currently accepting bookings thanks to the coronavirus pandemic and is expected to resume at a later date.

Ravenseat is a 2,000-acre working farm located in North Yorkshire in Upper Swaledale.

The land is around an hour walk west of Keld and is also situated halfway up the Coast to Coast walk.

This walk was made famous by author Alfred Wainwright, with the journey taking hikers 192 miles across England from St Bees to Robin Hoods Bay.

While Ravenseat has picturesque scenery which the Owens have enjoyed for many years, they have decided to move.

The couple revealed in the first episode of season four that they had bought another property.

Their future home is a dilapidated farmhouse which is located adjacent to Ravenseat.

Amanda was seen taking her children up to the new house and explaining a bit about its history.

They also discussed the logistics of moving their flock and animals to the new land but it’s going to be quite some time until the big move.

The farmhouse is nowhere near liveable as it is now so there’s a lot of work that needs doing before they can move in.

Amanda said: “When the opportunity came up and I saw that ‘for sale’ sign go up, it was like a no brainer.

“The opportunity to get that doesn’t come up that often.

“It’s so exciting but scary as well as it’s a big undertaking.”

Our Yorkshire Farm airs every Tuesday at 9pm on Channel 5.
