British farms feared they might not have enough workers to harvest fruit and vegetables this summer. Share your stories

We’d like to hear from those who are new to working in the UK food and agriculture sector about their experiences.

British farms feared they might not have enough workers to harvest fruit and vegetables this summer, as the ramifications of Brexit began to crystallise during the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.

Many farms employed seasonal workers from abroad, others took on more British workers than usual – particularly in Scotland.

We would like to hear from pickers on farms of all nationalities about what work has been like this summer.
