Tales of a Shepherdess

My life on the land




Get lost in a wonderful slice of life from shepherdess Hannah Jackson, who provides us with tales from the farm and lessons to live by for fans of the Yorkshire Shepherdess and Adam Henson

Lessons to live by, without getting up with the lark

Hannah Jackson (aka The Red Shepherdess) grew up in the Wirral, and hadn’t set foot on a farm until she was 20-years-old. But she’d always loved animals and on a visit to the Lake District, she saw a lamb being born and had a light bulb moment – a burning desire to succeed as a farmer – and never looked back.

In Tales of a Shepherdess, Hannah gives us a unique insight into farm life and the values it has taught her that we can use in our everyday lives to change ourselves and our world for the better – from connection, communication and community, to leadership, patience and resilience. Hannah will show us how becoming a lambing and farming contractor in a male-dominated and traditional world taught her grit and determination; how training her loyal sheepdog Fraser taught her to trust; and how sometimes failure can teach us more about ourselves than success. Hannah’s journey also teaches us how we should find what sets our hearts on fire and throw everything into it.

Hannah’s simple and universal wisdom, practical advice, and words of encouragement will inspire you to achieve your goals, follow your dreams and focus on what’s really important in life.

About the author

Hannah Jackson

Hannah Jackson is a lambing and farming contractor, also known as The Red Shepherdess to her online community. She owns a smallholding in Cumbria consisting of 120 sheep, which she manages with the help of her loyal sheepdog Fraser. When she’s not on a farm, Hannah is a spokesperson for agriculture (Young Farmer of the Year 2018 Finalist and National Sheep Association’s Next Generation Ambassador); a keen CrossFit fan (which, alongside her farming, stood her in good stead when she appeared on SAS: Who Dares Wins in 2019); and helps with her dad’s company, Natural Leaders, to inspire managers from some of the country’s top companies and industries using sheepdogs and herding techniques to demonstrate leadership skills.
