  • Agritourism can be a great way to add supplemental income to your farm but it does come with an additional set of responsibilities. If you are currently running an agritourism operation or are thinking about making this an addition to your farm, you should become familiar with the Compendium of Measures to Prevent Disease Associated with Animals in Public Settings. Following the guidelines outlined in the Compendium will help you make your farm as safe as possible for visitors and protect your assets.

    Minnesota Department of Health Epidemiologist and UMASH Researcher, Carrie Klumb, presented an agritourism webinar on April 18, 2016. The webinar was hosted by the AgriSafe Network. The title of the webinar was “Agritourism: The Next Frontier in Agriculture”. In the webinar, Carrie discussed zoonotic diseases and best practices to reduce injury and illness to farm visitors.

    Objectives of the webinar:

    – Understand what zoonotic diseases are, how they are transmitted, and why they are a potential problem for your farm
    – Be aware of the national best practices outlined in the Compendium and available resources to help you follow these guidelines
    – Apply these best practices to your farm in order to reduce the risk of illness or injury to visitors
    – Understand that the risk will never be zero

    This webinar is FREE – you will just be asked to register before viewing.
