VA: Bill to Promote Agriculture-Based Tourism Passes Through General Assembly

February 19, 2014

Both bills aim to do the same thing: allow agriculture- and forestry-based businesses - like tree, flower, nut, fruit or vegetable farms - to host agritourism events without being restricted by localities. The bill stipulates any agritourism activities must not create a "substantial impact on the health, safety, or general welfare of the public."
