Developing a waiver of liability for on-farm tours and other activities
AG NET West
Farmers are being encouraged to develop liability waivers for on-farm tours and other activities. Executive Director of the Sonoma County Farm Bureau, Tawny Tesconi recommends that growers meet with legal counsel to develop a waiver specific to their operation. Tesconi noted that as health officials begin allowing more on-farm tours, tastings, and other activities, growers would be best served by protecting themselves with a waiver.
