Amanda Owen took to Instagram on Sunday to share some adorable photos of her kids at their family farm, Ravenseat, which was recently closed to the public without notice.

In the sweet snaps, the mum-of-nine's young children could be seen petting some chickens as well as feeding them popcorn from their hands and throwing some of the popcorn in the air as eight chickens surrounded them.

The Our Yorkshire Farm star captioned the images with a tongue-in-cheek message which read: "A hen party… Hatching a plan… Popcorn chicken. #chicken #hens #henparty." 

Referring to the family's TV show, one fan rushed to ask: "Will there be any more series please?" alongside a praying hands emoji.

Others shared their delight at the behind-the-scenes glimpse of family life, commenting: "Lovely to see the kids again [heart eyes emoji] thanks for posting xx," and: "They are all growing up so fast, it's so lovely to see them. Thank you for posting their lovely photos [red heart emoji] xx."

Another referred to Amanda's recent social media absence, writing: "Took 3 of your books on holiday and loved them! You’re a great writer. Keep posting and writing, missed you x."

The former model kept quiet on Instagram for a couple of months following the news of Ravenseat's surprise closure.

The famous farm, which featured in the docuseries with her children and ex-husband Clive, quietly closed back in July, with a message on the website reading: "Ravenseat Farm is closed to visitors until further notice, so unfortunately we are not serving cream teas. Thank you for your understanding. Amanda."

Although Amanda was silent on her social media, her eldest son, Reuben, has shared insights into his own life since the farm closed, including a lovely snap with his mum.

The teenager shared several photos with his followers including one that showed him looking at a huge JCB digger, and a large patch of land with the digger in the distance. He also shared a photo where he and Amanda wrapped their arms around one another, smiling for the camera.
