Warning notice at agritourism location. Replaces the word "warning" with the word "attention" in the notice posted on signs at agritourism locations and included in contracts with agritourism professionals. Under the existing provisions of the Agritourism Activity Liability law, in order to avoid any liability for injury or death of participants in an agritourism activity, the agritourism profession is required to post a warning notice that there are inherent risks in engaging in the agritourism activity taking place on the property.
