Amanda and ex-husband Clive Owen announced they were separating in June 2022 after 22 years of marriage

Amanda Owen, 48, has overhauled her Yorkshire Shepherdess website to simply inform fans that Ravenseat Farm is now closed.

The Our Yorkshire Farm star's website now solely consists of a message from Amanda confirming the disappointing news in place of any other options to browse elsewhere.

"Ravenseat Farm is closed to visitors until further notice," Owen's statement reads. "So unfortunately we are not serving cream teas."

She concluded the brief and mysterious message: "Thank you for understanding, Amanda."

Owen stopped short of offering up an explanation as to why Ravenseat would no longer be welcoming visitors.

The news is undoubtedly a blow to customers who visit the farm in Yorkshire Dales during the summer months.

Ravenseat is usually open to visitors for cream teas between the months of May to October from 12pm-4pm.

Owen has been running things on the farm and juggling life as a mum of nine while co-parenting with her estranged husband, Clive.

The pair appear to remain on good terms despite their split with duties on the farm being tended to by both of them.

Owen hasn't taken to social media to provide any further information about the closure but did share a snapshot of life on the farm earlier this month.

In fact, Owen revealed one of her sons had suffered a bit of an accident while helping his parents out at Ravenseat.

The Owens' son Reuben revealed on his mum's Instagram that his phone was "ran over by a bulldozer".

In a selfie alongside Owen, the teenager penned: "I’ve nicked my mum’s phone as mine got ran over by a bulldozer.

"I’m now locked out of my instagram for anyone wondering why I’ve disappeared. @reubenowen74 be back soon." (sic)

However, Owen took the opportunity to have a bit of fun at her son's expense.

She followed up her son's post with a snap of him driving one of the farm's diggers.

Owen cheekily captioned the photo: "Not too down in the dumps about tracking over his phone," alongside a poop and tractor emoji.

Despite their split, Channel 5 has confirmed the Owen clan will return for another series of Our Yorkshire Farm.

A release date remains unknown but this will be the sixth series that the Yorkshire Shepherdess will have starred in.
