Our Yorkshire Farm star Amanda Owen regularly keeps fans updated with her day-to-day activities and shares glimpses into her family life while working on and off the farm. The shepherdess, who has captivated audiences with her Channel 5 show, has now been slammed for her latest Instagram post.

Taking to the picture-sharing site yesterday, the 46-year-old shared a candid snap with her children enjoying a home-cooked meal.

But some fans took aim at the post as they criticised the mother-of-nine for promoting a well known supermarket over local produce.

Others hit out at the Our Yorkshire Farm star for advertising products on her social media platform.

In view of her 363,000 followers, Amanda shared snaps of her family enjoying a roast dinner in what looked to be a sponsorship deal with Morrisons.

The shepherdess penned: “At Ravenseat, sitting down as a family for a meal at the end of the day is a very important part of who we are. Today we have gathered together for a delicious British leg of Lamb from Morrisons.

“Morrisons is a huge supporter of British farmers and only stocks 100 per cent British meat. The lamb, which is a whole leg from their Market Street Butchers Counter, was seasoned with garlic and rosemary, served with creamy dauphinoise potatoes, roasted parsnips, peas, carrots and luscious red wine gravy. As you can see it went down a treat!”

While some fans praised Amanda for preparing a delicious Sunday dinner, others were unhappy that she had opted for supermarket-bought food.

One person claimed: “Why would you promote a supermarket?? Thanks to them, local butchers and veg shops have been a dying breed. They have ruined local shops. They also screw the farmer down to the last penny.”

Another commented: “We buy your lamb or if not available the local lamb from McIntyre Butchers delivered to us in Sussex. I wonder why you feel the need to buy from Morrison’s?”

“Lovely family but succumbed to advertising, all looks staged,” a third commented.

A fourth argued: “Shame you are now promoting lots of products.”

“Thought you would of used your own lamb,”(sic) another commented.

Others praised the shepherdess as they came to Amanda’s defence following the criticism.

“So many ridiculous comments on here, unbelievable,” one said.

Another agreed: “Let’s face it, if anyone was offered a contract to advertise lamb for a supermarket you would have your family sitting around the dinner table for Sunday lunch even if it was Wednesday after school, before the ink had dried on the contract. Amanda is a shrewd businesswoman looking to the future.”

It is not uncommon for people with large social media followings to be approached by companies to advertise their products through their online accounts.

This can result in either a payment or the person posting being able to use the product free of charge.

Amanda later took to Instagram stories to also share the advertisement.

She said: “I’m overheating here. It’s been a busy old day and I’ve just cooked tea. What have I made?

“A family favourite… it’s a roast lamb dinner.”
