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.
