Indiana's Agritourism

Supporters of a new Indiana law aimed at protecting farmers and farm businesses from personal injury lawsuits say it could boost the state's agritourism industry, according to a report on IBJ.com

The law that took effect Friday (1 July) seeks to better inform people visiting fruit orchards, self-pick farms, animal exhibitions and other agritourism ventures of the dangers they might encounter at such sites.

The law calls for new signs to be placed at agritourism locations, warning participants of the risks involved, and thereby offering the proprietors of such businesses an additional measure of protection against possible litigation.
