'Not perfect parent' Our Yorkshire Farm's Amanda Owen hits back at social services warning

They are Raven, 21, Reuben, 18, Miles, 15, Edith, 13, Violet, 11, Sidney, ten, Annas, eight, Clemmie, six, and Nancy, five.

Back in 2018, she was criticised for letting some of her brood drive quad bikes without helmets, and on tractor cabs and trailers without guardrails. 

Unite member and assistant farmer Matthew Belsey, who also serves on the Health and Safety Executive’s Agriculture Industry Advisory Committee, said at the time: “It’s really disappointing as a union to be working so hard to raise awareness about health and safety in the most dangerous industry in the economy – and then to see such risks and violations popularised on a TV show.

“I have children and young grandchildren and, as an experienced farmworker, I would never put them in risky situations like those shown on the programme.”
