Webinar: Understanding the Basics of Agritourism Laws

July 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

WEBINAR: “Understanding the Basics of Agritourism Laws”

This webinar is presented by the Penn State Center for Agricultural and Shale Law and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Business Development Center as a part of the “Understanding Agricultural Law” series.

On Friday, July 26, 2024, from 12 noon–1:00 ET, the Penn State Center for Agricultural and Shale Law, alongside the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s (PDA) Agricultural Business Development Center (ABDC), will present the next webinar in the Understanding Agricultural Law educational series: “Understanding the Basics of Agritourism Laws.”

To increase revenue and diversify their businesses, many farms host agritourism activities such as corn mazes, farm tours, and pick-your-own events. In support of these on-farm activities, many states—including Pennsylvania in 2021—have passed laws providing legal protections for producers when inviting the public onto their farms to engage in agritourism.

This webinar will describe agritourism and agritourism liability laws, provide an overview and comparison of state agritourism laws, discuss Pennsylvania’s Agritourism Activity Protection Act, and explain what landowners need to do to acquire liability protection.
