Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Spring has sprung and many agritourism providers are busy gearing up for spring agritourism activities such as school tours and berry picking. Agritourism providers should take time this spring to review the key elements of Ohio’s new agritourism law and understand how the law affects the agritourism operation.Ohio’s new agritourism law applies to qualifying farms, including you-pick operations and farm markets, when an agritourism activity is conducted on that farm. A qualifying farm under the law is either at least 10 acres in size or a farm under 10 acres that grosses an average income of $2,500 from production (the same requirements for qualifying for Ohio’s CAUV property tax program). Agritourism activities include agriculturally related educational, entertainment, historical, cultural, or recreational activities. Below are two important benefits of Ohio’s agritourism law that agritourism providers should review this spring: liability protection and zoning protection. Liability protectionOne of the main benefits of the law is liability protection for agritourism providers against claims by participants injured as a result of an inherent risk of an agritourism activity. The law defines inherent risks to be dangers and conditions that are an integral part of the activity, including surface and subsurface land conditions, actions of wild animals and domestic animals other than vicious or dangerous dogs, dangers of farm structures and equipment, illness from contacting animals, feed or waste, and the participant’s failure to follow instructions or use reasonable caution.There are several limitations and requirements under the law that impact this liability protection. Most importantly, agritourism providers must post signs either at the entrance to the farm or at each agritourism activity in order to receive liability protection under the law. The signs must meet the specifications of the law. For more information about posting signs and the law’s liability protection, our previous post on agritourism is here. ZoningOhio’s agritourism law also provides some zoning protections to agritourism providers. Under the law, township and county zoning authorities cannot prohibit agritourism activities on farms. But, townships and counties can regulate some factors related to agritourism to protect public health and safety. These factors include the size of structures used primarily for agritourism, setbacks for structures, ingress and egress from the parcel, and the size of parking areas. A township or county that wants to regulate these limited factors must have provisions addressing the factors in the local zoning code. We explain the zoning provisions of the agritourism law in more detail in our law bulletin, here.Preparing for the 2017 SeasonAs agritourism providers prepare for the 2017 season, providers should take a few actions to ensure the benefits of the agritourism law for their operations:▪ Post the required signs at the entrance to the agritourism operation or at each agritourism activity. Also, consider adding your own signs to give instructions, guide visitors safely around the property or warn visitors of potential hazards.▪ Even with the law’s liability protection, make sure the property is as safe and clean as possible. Spring is a good time to walk the property to identify any dangerous conditions that might put a visitor at risk and fix those conditions before inviting guests on the property.▪ Farms under 10 acres in size should take time to brush up on good recordkeeping practices. Farms that are under 10 acres may be required to prove that they qualify as a farm under the agritourism law by showing $2,500 in gross receipts. Be sure to maintain all records of farm income.▪ If starting a new agritourism activity, check the local zoning code to see if the township or county has zoning requirements for the few agritourism factors it can regulate. Be prepared for a visit by the local zoning inspector and be ready to show the inspector that the activity falls under the new agritourism law’s zoning protections because it is “agritourism” conducted on a “farm.”A full description of the Ohio Agritourism Law is available via our law bulletin here. read more
Ratliffe expects semis vs Rhodes, Beermen to go the distance “I gave everything that I had, so at times throughout the game I was tired, but that’s just because I was just playing as hard as I could,” James said. “But I was able to get second and third and fourth winds. I don’t contribute as losing this game because we got tired. We missed some shots, and they made some.”Asked if he thought the Warriors had taken the best shot Cleveland had to give, James said, “It’s so hard to say, but for me personally, I gave everything I had, so win, lose or draw you live with the results.“They played a really good game as well, but they made shots down the stretch. They got stops and then they made play after play down the stretch.”“You go against a team like this and you put together a game like we had where we had an opportunity, it’s definitely draining.”Irving felt it as well.“But game four, I look forward to it,” Irving said. “Another challenge for us to get better and go against a great team.”Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said he never considered resting James or Irving with the game on the line.“I decided to stick with those guys, being at home, down 0-2. Great players, they always dig deep and have their will to win. And they gave us everything they had,” Lue said.“Durant made eight straight points that was very critical, three big shots, and that’s why they brought him here, for those situations.“They’re a great team, but I think we’re a great team also. They’re playing at a high level. Our team scrapped and competed. I can’t be disappointed with the effort.” Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Heart Evangelista admits she’s pregnant… with chicken 1 dead in Cavite blast, fire Heart Evangelista admits she’s pregnant… with chicken For superstar LeBron James, who achieved a life dream by rallying his hometown Cavaliers last year to win Cleveland’s first major sport title in 52 years, the focus will be on improving every possession in every quarter.“It’s a dramatic situation to be in,” James said. “We’re going to come in tomorrow, watch some film, see ways we can get better and just try to take it one game at a time.“I’ve got to go home, get my mind focused and get my body focused for game four and we take it one possession at a time.”James had 39 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists in 45 minutes, tiring at the end as even his indomitable will was found wanting when guarding Durant on a pivotal 3-pointer with 45 seconds remaining that gave Golden State the lead for good.‘Definitely draining’ADVERTISEMENT Cayetano dares Lacson, Drilon to take lie-detector test: Wala akong kinita sa SEA Games View comments Teammates check on Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James, center, who lies on the floor after contact against the Golden State Warriors during the first half of Game 3 of basketball’s NBA Finals in Cleveland, Wednesday, June 7, 2017.
