Agricultural Tourism 2023

Product ID: CA3556W
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Endorsed by the Litigation Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin

Of hay bales and wedding bells

Fall in Wisconsin is the perfect time to visit a pumpkin patch, get lost in a corn maze, see the leaves change, and clad yourself in flannel. For couples tying the knot, it’s also an ideal time to have a barn wedding. Luckily for them, there’s no shortage of charming wedding venues to choose from in the Badger State.1

But when the owner of a farm, apple orchard, or wedding barn wants to open their property to host events, it’s not enough to have a picturesque barn or beautiful surroundings. There are a host of legal problems that can arise for agricultural tourism providers, from business contracts and licenses to potential liability issues.

Learn what the Wisconsin Statutes require when it comes to event spaces like barns and farms at Agricultural Tourism. You’ll discover:

  • Who qualifies as an agricultural tourism provider
  • How recreational immunity applies to agricultural tourism
  • How venue owners can help protect themselves from liability
  • Statutory exemptions from liability for death or injury
  • How equine immunity may factor into your legal analysis
