Perry Wakeman

I have listed some possible eventualities below, with input from our suppliers, the British government, Dairy UK and various other sources but as it stands this my best estimate. No Deal This would see our current arrangement with the EU being ceased. This could potentially cause two issues; Issue one, an increased tariff (Farmers Guardian...
