With the fall season right around the corner, many agritourism farms will be busy with families coming to walk through a corn maze, partake in “you pick” fruits and vegetables, and enjoy other farm-based activities. The National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety has valuable agritourism information to help keep youth safe.
