Many farmers utilize all purpose vehicles (APV) or all terrain vehicles (ATVs) on their farms. While APVs can be extremely helpful to farmers, they can also create problems when they are used to trespass on farm property. Ohio Farm Bureau has a brochure available to members in its legal information series that covers issues related to APVs that farmers may encounter.
