Farming Hinton Ampner
The Brexit/Virus Year
Charlie and Hazel Flindt farm 920 acres of heavy land on the National Trust-owned estate at Hinton Ampner in Hampshire. In February 2020, Charlie decided that someone should record, in the finest detail, the consequences of the biggest thing to hit British farming in generations: Brexit. He had two reasons for this: first, Manor Farm is a traditional non-organic mixed tenanted farm, just the sort of family agricultural business predicted to suffer the most from leaving the EU. And, second, Charlie has always been an ardent and vocal Brexiteer. It seemed only right that he should chronicle the imminent ‘farmageddon’.
As it turned out, Brexit turned out to be the least of anyone’s worries.
