The Yorkshire Shepherdess has broken her social media silence to share the news

Amanda Owen fans have been itching for updates from the Our Yorkshire Farm star ever since Ravenseat shut its doors to the public back in July.

Now, Owen has made a return to social media to share an exciting new update about an all-new venture she's been taking part in.

Owen has been lending her expertise to the judging panel at a recent event held by Deliciously Yorkshire.

The company states it "proudly supports the Yorkshire food & drink community since 1989".

As such, it recently held a tasting event in which Owen joined a number of other experts from the area to indulge on local produce.

Owen shared a snap of herself alongside her fellow judges at the event on her Instagram stories.

"On the judging panel eating cakes, buns and PIES!!" Owen captioned the snap. "Absolutely @deliciouslyorkshire."

Her fellow judge Stephanie Moon also took to the social media platform to share a photo alongside Owen from the event.

She penned: "Super last day @deliciouslyorkshire judging with @yorkshireshepherdess @lisabwitched_bettys_ @valerie.aston.507 @uoysbs @wellyboot_marketing loved it and some cracking winners."

Owen was all smiles as she looked radiant in an eye-catching blue dress and white trainers.

It's the first time the Yorkshire Shepherdess has taken to social media since Ravenseat closed at the end of July for unknown reasons.

The farm usually welcomes visitors during the summer for cream teas but this year, Owen announced it wouldn't be doing so.

Owen has remained silent on exactly why but has made brief returns to the web via her children's pages.

Son Reuben posted a selfie with his mother back in August while earlier this week Owen was all smiles in a sweet selfie with her daughter Raven.

While the circumstances surrounding Ravenseat's closure remain a mystery, it isn't the first time Owen has been forced to shut its door to visitors.

Last year, she and her family had to give their undivided attention to the demand of lambing season.

Owen has become a household name thanks to Channel 5 series Our Yorkshire Farm in which viewers follow the mum-of-nine take on the day-to-day tasks involved in running Ravenseat.

Her ex-husband Clive accompanied Owen in the series but the pair announced last year they were splitting after 22 years of marriage.
