Here are a few photographs that show the recent changes in cash crops
Lambs and sheep but these can live in isolated areas.
Livestock can need grazing and milking
Farming has historically been very reliant on subsidies from the EU- one wonders if that will continue as before
More recently there is harvesting electricity with solar panels or wind turbines. There was a period when these also attracted subsidies.
The latest cash crop seems to be attempting to grow old fridges. So far this planting does not seem to have produced much. This process is encouraged by council policies on charges for recycling. See
