LIABILITY WAIVER FOR PARTICIPATING IN ACTIVITIES OR VISITING TEN APPLE FARM : 241 YARMOUTH ROAD, GRAY, MAINE 04039
Under Maine law, [HP1214 | LD 1605: An Act To Promote Agricultural Activity in Maine by Limiting the Liability for Agritourism Activities] there is no liability for injury to a participant in an agritourism activity conducted at this agritourism location if such injury results from the inherent risks of the agritourism activity. Inherent risks of agritourism activities include, among others, risks of injury inherent to land, equipment and animals, as well as the potential for injury if you act in a negligent manner. You are assuming the risk of participating in this agritourism activity.
By acknowledging this waiver, I state that I have read the above Maine laws and understand visiting Ten Apple Farm or participating in activities at Ten Apple Farm may pose risks to my safety, health or property, or the safety, health, or property of those accompanying me to the farm property. I understand any farm activity may be hazardous. The risks include, but are not limited to, being bitten, stepped on, knocked down, kicked, or butted by a goat or other animal, insect bites and stings, falls or spills. I am solely responsible for my safety. All minors that are in my care or custody while at the farm are my responsibility. If I am not the legal guardian, custodial parent, or caregiver to a minor that accompanies me, I am still responsible for their health, safety and welfare while on Ten Apple Farm property. It is my responsibility to be aware of any present or past physical, medical, social or psychological conditions that may increase the risk of illness or injury to me or those in my care. I acknowledge that Ten Apple Farm or any agent thereof will not assume any responsibility for my presence or activities associated with the use of this facility and/or any animals at any time. This facility and the agents thereof, provide general rules, instructions and techniques. I have given careful consideration of the general instructions, rules, and techniques suggested by Ten Apple Farm staff or volunteers before undertaking, or allowing any minor in my care or custody to undertake any farm activity. I understand that visitors and participants are to stay off fences, gates, ladders, hay stacks, equipment and vehicles unless directly supervised by Ten Apple Farm staff. I understand that all animals at Ten Apple Farm may act unpredictably. I understand that any fences may be electrified and electric shock will likely occur if fences are climbed or leaned on. In consideration of being granted permission to interact with any animal, visit, tour, or participate in any activities at Ten Apple Farm, I hereby waive any and all claims, actions, or demands that may arise in favor of myself, or any of my heirs, successors, executors, or other including administrators, or assigns against Ten Apple Farm, Karl G. Schatz, Margaret M Hathaway Schatz, or any agents thereof. This release shall be binding upon the heirs, successors, executors, administrators, or assigns of applicant or applicants.
