The whole of the UK needs some advice. If our supply chain for milk and cheese stretches to Poland and Rumania and we have hundreds of miles of empty UK fields producing nothing.

What is that?

Well that's complete rubbish! Our milk and dairy are produced in this country, not imported from overseas. The only thing farmers get from the EU are financial subsidies which they will no longer receive if we leave the EU. I used to work for DEFRA working with these same farmers who will likely lose their livelihoods without these subsidies. The EU isn't harming our farming industry the airheads who voted leave and govt are doing that! Try actually speaking to farmers who are going to be affected by this like I did!
