Tales of a Shepherdess

My Life on the Land

by Hannah Jackson
Publication Date: 11/05/2021

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

Growing up on the Wirral, Hannah Jackson had no idea she wanted to work on a farm until a life-changing family visit to the Lake District in her late teens. It was there where she first saw a lamb being born, giving her the drive to defy her urban roots and become a professional shepherd. She never looked back.

In this uplifting and inspirational memoir, Hannah shares how she broke the stereotypes of her 'townie' beginnings, took risks and faced up to the challenges of being a young woman in a male-dominated industry, and followed her heart to become the Red Shepherdess. But behind the beautiful landscape, talented sheepdogs and eye-catching red hair was a steep learning curve. The physically and mentally demanding conditions she faced as she chased her dreams to build her own Cumbrian farm taught Hannah the values the holds true, including community, leadership, patience and resilience.

In Call Me Red, Hannah gives a unique insight into farming life and reveals a mindset and determination that proves no matter your background, with hard graft (and a loyal sheepdog) you can make your dreams a reality.

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.
