Agriculture

Includes horticulture, fruit growing, seed growing, dairy farming and livestock breeding and keeping, the use of land as grazing land, meadow land, osier land, market gardens and nursery grounds, and the use of land for woodlands where that use is ancillary to the farming of land for other agricultural purposes.

This is the definition in section 38(1) of the Agricultural Tenancies Act 1995 and section 96(1) of the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986. Whether or not any particular activity is regarded as agriculture will depend on the construction of the statutory definition relevant to that situation.
