Home and Contents Coverage

Similar to homeowners' policies, most farm insurance policies are built to cover your home and personal belongings. This is due to the fact that farm policies were crafted around the concepts of traditional farms. Where the farmer would tend to the land surrounding the house, leveraging that property to raise animals and produce crops. 

Now, if your farm isn't right next to your home, no worries. This is something our team can address and exclude this coverage from your policy. That is the benefit of working with a top-in-class agency. ensuring you have the perfect coverage for your unique situation. 

Farm Outbuildings Coverage

Farm ourbuildings Coverage is regarded as the most important coverage on your policy. This is built to proctect the buildings where all of the magic hapens, where you store your equipment, and house your livestock. Whether it is a simple storage building, barn where you store your equipment and tractors, keep the cattle and horses. These are things that may be covered with this section. 

When working with our team we will make sure you have the coverage needed for each of these buildings. Things such as age and condition of the building may affect the type of coverage.

Farm Machinery Coverage

This type of coverage will is built to protect the vehicles you use everyday to maintain your farm. Such as tractors, trailers, skid-stears, combines and similar types of machinery. 

Typically farm machinery coverage is based on the value of that specific piece of equipment, not necessarily the replacement cost.


Meaning that this will need to be updated each year. 

We know how vital farm machinery is to a running a successful farm. Being said, we are very adament on making sure that you have the right coverage for you year in and year out. as you buy new equipment get rid of old... make sure that you are protected! 

Farmer's Liability Coverage

If you dont have this on your current policy you may want to look at adding it As Soon As Possible. This coverage protects you from the instance if someone was to get hurt on your farm that wasnt a hired hand. For example if you had the rep from a local tractor store come out to talk about getting you in one of their new tractors, but while he was on your farm he slipped in your barn. If that rep decided to sue, Farmer's liability coverage would help cover that.


While this protection is on the top of our must have list form our farmers, the best part is - typically this is the lease expensive aspect of your policy.
