Today Wednesday 8 February 2023, there is a new episode of Amanda Owen’s Farming Lives.
Episode 3 When Amanda decides to join SJ and Nat, a dedicated couple who left their high-flying positions in London to start a pig farm on the Yorkshire/Lancashire border and produce artisan sausages and salami, she trades in her sheep for pigs.
Beautiful, windswept moors above Todmorden make Amanda feel like at home, but she has a lot to learn about working with pedigree pigs, as she soon finds out.
Amanda learns about the enormous personal hurdles SJ and Nat have had to overcome while working on the farm and meeting the retailers they supply.
On opening day of the farm’s new shop, Amanda’s sales patter is put to the test as hungry customers converge on the farm. Nat also teaches Amanda in the art of salami manufacturing, with some rather messy results.
