Agritourism Tours

Farmers in California have begun offering tours of their olive groves, citrus groves, and u-pick operations for a variety of reasons. The one I thought was most interesting was to decrease the farm liability. We often hear of the liability of allowing the public onto the property but one business began offering tours to address the liability brought on by trespassing. The article had three major points with specifics about each:
  • Liability of people walking through the groves without permission
  • Increased sales of products
  • Educating people about food production
