What is Farm Insurance?

Farm coverage is all about insurance for your agriculture business or farm. It will reimburse you for hazard damage, protect your legal interests, and help to keep your financial future in tact.

Who Needs Farm Insurance?

If you are in the agricultural business, you need to be insured and this includes:

  • Dairy/Beef farmers - this can include the actual cattle themselves
  • Sheep farmers
  • Crop farmers - can include a wide range of crops, including wheat, corn, and bio fuel.
  • Ranches and stables - boarding out horse and taking care of them
  • Poultry farms
  • Hog farms
  • Orchards
  • Vineyards

What is Typical Farm Insurance?

A standard policy does not really exist, because there are too many variances from one farm to another, even if they grow the same things. However, here are options most farms will need:

  • Homeowner coverage - most farmers live on their farms and it is both home and business, so they have the same basic needs of any homeowner. This includes liability and property coverage.
  • Commercial Liability - this is similar to most commercial liability policies except it may need to cover a wide range of hazards due to the nature of your business.
  • Agriculture equipment - if you utilize trucks, tractors, plows, utility vehicles, wells, conveyor systems, feeders, combines, irrigation systems, or other kinds of equipment, they should be protected with insurance.
  • Loss of income - pays you lost income during a covered loss.
  • Outbuildings - barns, sheds, silos, and other structures
  • Livestock insurance

Farm Insurance Options

  • Increased commercial liability insurance coverage - this can include taking out an umbrella insurance policy or a limited pollution liability policy
  • Replacement cost coverage
  • Flood insurance
  • All risk coverage - covers all perils unless they are excluded
  • Equipment breakdown insurance
