Agritourism Website Focuses on Safety

With the growing popularity of taking the family to visit 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

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 is “Agricultural Safety and Health…A Family Affair.”
