The agriculture sector could face issues post-Brexit transition period, but by focusing on quality, sustainability and technology, it could build a new place on the world stage.

UK agriculture is going through its most exciting period since 1947, according to Jonathan Thompson, a solicitor in the Rural Land and Business Department of Hunters Law. Not all of that excitement is positive, but the sector is not without its opportunities. Either way, it will be game-changing.

“We are faced with various bills going through Parliament, such as the Agriculture Bill and the Environment bill,” he explains. “There’s going to be a multitude of statutory legislation coming out of it in relation to how agriculture works; it’s enabling a completely new structure. So yes, there are challenges and there’s a lot of pessimism around in certain parts of the industry. But even then, you’ve got to look at the positives. You’ve got to learn to dance in the rain.”
