Agritourism operators are responsible for the health and safety of guests and any person assisting guests on the operation, which could include the owner, family members, volunteers or employees. This supplemental guide was developed to review the health and safety considerations that have already been incorporated on the farm, and allow operators to identify any deficiencies, so actions can be taken to prevent or control hazardous exposures. This, in turn, will ensure the health and safety of guests while increasing the operation's efficiency and profitability. This guide will help agritourism operators check the operation's preparedness for emergencies, communication with guests, animals and hand-washing, fires, tractors and display equipment, walkways and structures, barriers and fencing, pest control, food handling, recordkeeping, along with hayride and corn maze operations. It contains checklists to help agritourism operators perform a hazard identification walk through to view and correct hazards before visits by guests.
