Limit your liability by posting this sign. The law states that the exemption would not apply if a sign is not posted.
2013 Wisconsin Act 269 was amended to limit civil liability for injury to or the death of an individual who is participating in an agricultural tourism activity. The agricultural tourism provider must post and maintain in a clearly visible location at each entrance to the property where the activity takes place or at the location of each activity, a sign that contains the following notice in black lettering, each letter a minimum of one inch in height, on a white background (see wording below). See Act 269 for complete verbiage http://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/2013/related/acts/269/_4
An agricultural tourism activity is defined as and educational or recreational activity that takes place on a farm, ranch, grove or other place where agricultural, horticultural or silvicultural crops are grown or farm animals or farmed fish are raised. An agricultural tourism activity allows members of the public, whether or not for a fee, to tour, explore, observe, learn about, participate in, or be entertained by an aspect of agricultural production, harvesting or husbandry that occurs on the property.
