Agritourism Limited Liability Law
Mississippi Senate Bill 2439 provides limited liability to persons engaged in agritourism activities. This law, which went into effect July 1, 2012, gives landowners added liability protection as long as they make sensible efforts to make their property secure and alert visitors to any recognized hazards. To be covered by the Agritourism Limited Liability Law, an agritourism professional musts register with the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce on an annual basis. Additionally, the agritourism professional must pay fifty dollars ($50.00) to the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce at the time of registration. In order to be eligible, certain criteria must be met and adhered to. Warning signs with specific language, as spelled out by law, must be posted and maintained in clearly visible entrance and activity locations.
Mississippi Agritourism Signage Program
The Mississippi Department of Transportation, working in conjuction with Mississippi Logos, LLC has launched a directional signage program for those agritourism venues registered with the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce. This program, based on criteria and fees instituted by these two organizations, and separate from the Mississippi Agritourism Registration Program, will supply those registered agritourism venues with road signs stating the name of agritourism destination and mileage.
