Montana Farmers Union leads charge on passage of agritourism bill  

Montana Farmers Union was pleased to join Governor Steve Bullock in Helena on Friday for the signing of HB342. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Ross Fitzgerald of House District 17 and championed by MFU, adds agritourism to the list of Montana recreational activities in which participants assume liability for the inherent risk of those activities. The bill passed the house 78-18 on February 10, passed the senate 43-6 on March 16 and signed into law by the governor on March 31.
MFU has tried in previous legislative sessions to get such legislation passed and lobbied heavily for its passage.
“We have worked long and hard to see this legislation pass, said President Alan Merrill. “Agritourism has the potential to help Montana’s farmers and ranchers add diversity to their operation and earn added revenue to support their farm or ranch. There is a great opportunity for youth particularly to learn about where their food comes from and to see the work that goes into producing local food.”
