Best Farm Insurance

A question we get frequently from prospects is “Who has the best farm insurance?” Of course, the answer can be subjective. There are a lot of factors that go into farm insurance. The carrier, the agency, and the contract(s) all play a major role in the quality of coverage, service, and most importantly, claims situations.

It’s important for a farmer to have confidence in their coverage. Should fire destroy a massive crop, or livestock perish to serious illness, it would be a significant financial loss for the farm, and could potentially put some smaller farmers out of business. Unless of course, they have the correct farm insurance coverage in place.
