Scotland’s biggest turkey farmer is relocating tens of thousands of his birds to the Continent in preparation for a no-deal Brexit. Paul Kelly plans to transfer 10 per cent of his business to Holland and Germany over trade barrier fears and because seasonal workers are abandoning the UK, the Sunday Mail can reveal. The move is a stark reminder of the catastrophic consequences crashing out of the European Union in March will have on small and medium-sized businesses. The managing director of KellyBronze Free Range Turkeys is being forced into action because his usual army of Eastern European pluckers was down 20 per cent this year.
