Each part of the UK tends to have a particular type of farming.
Note: It will be helpful if you know five case studies, one for each of these types of farming.
This involves the rearing or purchase of cattle for the production of milk. It is mainly found in south-western England, the lowland areas of Wales and in Lancashire. Dairy farmers prefer fertile, well-drained soils that produce high quality grass. Dairy farms supply milk to nearby urban areas as well as to dairies for the production of milk products such as butter and cheese. The production of milk has been subsidised since 1945 but the quantity farmers are allowed to produce has been limited by quotas since the 1980s.
This is intensive farming, producing high-quality crops such as fruit, salad, vegetables and flowers. It can be found in Cornwall and Devon, the Isles of Scilly, and the Fens. Farms may be as small as one hectare. Market gardeners use climate-controlled glasshouses, artificial soils and irrigation to obtain a high quality output which is taken to markets in refrigerated lorries.
