Accidents on farms
If you go fruit picking with children, you should ensure that they are supervised at all times. Apple orchards can be very tempting for children, as they often want to climb trees. However, this should be discouraged as falls from heights can cause serious injuries.
Children should not ride in a cab of any farm vehicle if they are under the age of 13, and child visitors to farms should be kept well away from tractors and other vehicles. In 2012/13 there were seven fatal injuries to members of the public on farms. The average for the previous five years was five. If you visit a farm, take care, especially of children.
