ADLib Glossary (A)


Agricultural premises

Agricultural premises are farms used for an activity defined as agricultural in the Agriculture Act 1947. This includes land used for: horticulture, fruit growing, seed growing, dairy farming, livestock breeding and keeping, grazing land, meadow land, osier land (growing willow), market gardens and nursery grounds. It also includes woodlands where that use is ancillary to the use of land for other agricultural purposes. This definition includes all arable farming. Riding stables, equine centres kennels and animal parks are not classed as agricultural premises and, therefore, do not produce agricultural wastes. Farms for ornamental fish are not agricultural premises.
