Agritourism November 2016 Workshops
The LSU AgCenter offered two agritourism workshops titled “Managing Financial and Legal Liabilities” in November, 2016. The first workshop was held on November 8, 2016 at the LSU AgCenter’s H. Rouse Caffey Rice Research Station in Crowley and the second took place on November 10, 2016 at the LSU AgCenter’s Red River Research Station in Bossier City. These educational workshops were part of the grant “Enhancing Louisiana Agritourism: Managing Financial and Legal Liabilities” funded through the US Department of Agriculture-National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA-NIFA) and the Southern Risk Management Education Center (SRMEC).
The workshop emphasized two main themes: (i) Financial risks and benefits associated with agritourism and (ii) Legal liabilities associated agritourism operations. Presenters included Dora Ann Hatch with LSU AgCenter and Rene Simon with Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, Maria Bampasidou with LSU AgCenter, Rusty Rumley with the National Agricultural Law Center and Randal Whitehead with Louisiana Farm Bureau Insurance Companies.
