Safeguarding your farm’s tomorrow, today

Each farm business is unique and comes with its own complexities. From an insurance standpoint, your farm operation is one of the most specialized areas of business we encounter. That’s why our dedicated agriculture insurance advisors cultivate relationships with their clients to ensure they’re fully protected, inclusive of the following coverage options.

Machinery 🚜

Modern machinery revolutionizes farming, adapting to tech advancements and reshaping agriculture. Equipment purchases are significant investments, from automated seeding to GPS routing. Our policy safeguards your machinery investment for uninterrupted operations in case of loss.

Buildings 🏠

Barns, sheds, greenhouses and shops. There’s a reason the agriculture industry is found in the country; farmers need a lot of space. Buildings house many elements necessary for day-to-day production. The right farm insurance policy will cover buildings on your property against losses that may occur.

Livestock & poultry 🐄

Unlike other types of farming, you look after the well-being of your herd, brood, or drift instead of nurturing a seed to a harvest-ready crop. There are specific risks that differentiate livestock farming from other agriculture types. That’s why it’s important to have the right farm insurance policy to protect your business and livestock.

Tools & equipment 🧰

Walk into the shop of any farmer, and you’ll know there is a lot of equipment needed to get the job done. Whether you have specialized tools to fix your new combine or a supply of twine in preparation for baling season, the tools and equipment required for your operation can add up, and the right farm insurance policy will provide peace of mind coverage.

Liability 🤕

Farm liability covers both business operations and personal liability for farmers and their families. It includes coverage for claims arising from bodily injury and property damage resulting from farming operations. These losses could be due to employees, products, livestock, completed operations, or incidents on the premises. Click here to learn more about business liability.

Commercial auto 🚚

Whether your operation has one vehicle or many, you need tailored protection through a commercial auto insurance solution. Commercial auto insurance is essential for vehicles used beyond personal purposes. For businesses with multiple vehicles, fleet insurance is an efficient option.

Home 🏠

We provide comprehensive home insurance designed for farmers, covering both your home and personal property. Our policies protect against various risks, helping you bounce back quickly from events like fire, water damage, wind, theft, and vandalism. With our insurance, you can feel confident that your property is well-protected.
