The real reasons why British workers won't pick fruit
The entire working culture of the UK has transformed since British workers last filled seasonal farm work jobs to any significant extent. Rural communities have been transformed due to the “drift from the land” of locals, and people from cities moving to the country or buying second homes, pricing potential farm workers out of the local housing market.

As a result, physically able unemployed people are now less likely to live anywhere near the farms requiring workers. Transport systems in rural areas are limited, and basic, temporary housing is unlikely to attract people away from comfortable, permanent housing situated close to friends and family.

Mearns farm loses £350,000 as fruit left to rot due to picker shortage
As noted in the article - this isn't even because of Brexit. These workers were frequently from outside of the EU. This is because our evil government believes that we should close ourselves off from the world, even when it harms us.
