New AgriTourism Limited Liability Signs Are Now Available
PROTECT YOUR AGRI-TOURISM BUSINESS TODAY!
We have exciting news to share with you regarding a new law approved in 2017 by the state Legislature that provide’s additional
liability protections for agritourism business operators.
Senate Bill 5808 states that 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.
The bill also states that no participant or participant’s representative may pursue an action or recover from an agritourism professional for
injury, loss, damage, or death of the participant resulting exclusively from any of the inherent risks of agritourism activities.
This new law went into effect on July 23, 2017. To read the new law, click here.

To benefit from this new liability protection, you must post signs on your farm with the specific language shown in the sample below.
To help you access these signs in time for this fall’s activities, WA Farm Bureau is making signs available that are 3′ X 4′ and comply
with the new law.
You can also show this email to your local printer or sign maker and have them made locally. However, we believe our bulk-order price will be far cheaper than what you will be able to find on an individual order.
These signs are printed on a high quality polyvinyl banner that measures 3′ X 4′ (3 feet tall X 4 feet wide) with letters measuring a minimum of 1 inch tall for high visibility. Each banner is made with 4 brass grommets, one on each corner for easy hanging and fastening capabilities.
The new law requires that these new signs be placed in a clearly visible location at the entrance to the agritourism business
and at the site of each agritourism activity.
