"If orchards don't pay well enough then perhaps there should be fewer orchards? Or they should be more efficient. Or they should concentrate on premium products."

At some point you have to start thinking about just what we produce in the EU or the UK or wherever you're thinking about. You could very easily end up creating an employment desert. Pretty well everything we make or grow can be done by someone else somewhere in the world cheaper, especially if a little dumping allows them to destroy the UK capacity to produce it.
