Farms and Fun: Reducing Liability Risk for Agritourism Webinar
The agritourism industry is in a growth pattern. The number of farms receiving income from agritourism in the U.S. expanded from 23,350 in 2007 to 33,161 in 2012 and agritourism income grew from $566 million to $704 million, with an average income of over $24,000 per farm. Research suggests that agritourism operations will continue on this track in the future due to persistent consumer interest in food and farming coupled with an economic need to augment farm income through diversification.
However, bringing people onto the farm for fun also brings risks of injuries and the possibility of legal liability. In this webinar, we’ll address areas of high risk exposure for agritourism operations and tools for reducing liability risk such as immunity laws, best management practices, agritourism readiness plans and insurance options.
