New state law passes protections for agritourism operators; signs necessary

Jul 31st, 2017 | Category: News

STATE – The State Legislature passed a new law, effective July 23, providing additional liability protections for agritourism business operators. According to Senate Bill 5808, an agritourism professional is not liable for unintentional injury, loss, damage, or death resulting exclusively from the inherent risks of an agritourism activity, with certain exceptions. To benefit from this new liability protection, all agritourism locations must post warning signs in clearly visible locations on your farm with specific language. To help spread awareness about the new law and to the public visiting agritourism farms and locations, the Washington Farm Bureau is placing a bulk order for signs at a cost of $30 for WA Farm Bureau members and $40 for non-members. Orders are due by Aug. 16. For more information, contact Tom Davis at tdavis@wsfb.com or Jenni Budde jbudde@wsfb.com.
