Amanda Owen had to defend herself after being accused of having children to help her on the farm.

The 46-year-old Our Yorkshire Farm star is married to Clive Owen and currently has nine kids, but is ruling out having a tenth.

She believes she is too old to have another but wants people to know that she wants her kids to feel involved when it comes to the farm.

The star explained: "I try not to build comparisons with what everybody else is doing. I'm quite fortunate that I don't have to do competitive parenting because I'm isolated, so I can do my own thing.

"But being part of a big family, being on the farm and having various tasks and responsibilities, I think those are really good life lessons."

She continued to The Sun : "To teach them washing and cooking, I don't mean for one minute my kids are skivvies but I want them to feel like an important part of what we do and that they're valued.

"I think that responsibility holds the family together, especially with the older ones, it gives them independence."

Our Yorkshire Farm viewers previously accused the star and her 66-year-old husband of "breeding their own workforce".

However, she says her children are happy to help out with chores on Ravenseat farm.

Farm work is done with the help of their nine children, Annas, Violet, Edith, Raven, Clemmy, Nancy, Reuben, Miles, and Sidney.

They have a lot of work cut out for them as the Owens own 1,000 sheep, 40 cows, six dogs and four ponies.

Defending herself last month, Amanda said: "We all have to work together as a family. I really don't feel that's a bad lesson.

“This is what needs to happen and we all need to do it.

"I don't feel like that's sort of breeding your own workforce because it's not that.

"It's a fact of being involved and have that responsibility and being part of something. I think that's a good thing.”
