Agritourism website focuses on safety

—From AFBF

With the growing popularity of corn mazes, pumpkin patches and other agricultural attractions, it’s increasingly important for agritourism farmers to keep visitors safe. A new, interactive web guide to help farmers improve safety is available at www.safeagritourism.com.

Offered by the Marshfield Clinic, a large, multi-location medical practice in Wisconsin, the safe agritourism guide includes walk-throughs that use photos to contrast improper practices with best practices and guidelines, checklists that farm operators can use to do their own walk-throughs and resources such as signs, policies, logos and other printable items.

The agritourism safety web guide was announced in time for National Farm Safety and Health Week, Sept. 16-22. This year’s theme was “Agricultural Safety and Health...A Family Affair.”
