Hi Friend,

Pennsylvania House Bill 1348 (HB 1348), also known as the Agritourism Activity Protection Act, passed the House and is up for a vote in the Senate.

HB 1348 would provide limited protection for those offering safe on-farm agritourism activities, with certain exceptions. These activities could include tours or entertainment related to agricultural production, rural lifestyle, or harvesting. The bill would protect farmers from frivolous lawsuits and force participants to acknowledge that there are inherent risks on farms.

Passing this bill could help struggling farmers all over Pennsylvania especially while many area residents are looking for safe and educational escapes during quarantine.

Please call your State Senator and urge him/her to vote YES on HB 1348. The Senate could vote on the bill any day.

In good health,

Alexia Kulwiec
Executive Director

More Info

If passed, HB 1348 could provide Pennsylvania farmers another economic opportunity without having to worry about a liability lawsuit relating to normal farm risks bankrupting the farm. According to the bill, a specific warning notice would have to be posted on the property where the agritourism would be taking place and participants would have to sign an agreement that they acknowledge the risk of participating in the activity. Protection would not apply if the agritourism provider were negligent or reckless. Also, overnight stays, conferences and weddings would be excluded from covered agritourism activities.
