What is farm insurance?
Farm insurance, also known as farmowners insurance is a specific type of insurance that protects farms, ranches, and agricultural properties. While it is very similar to regular home insurance, farm insurance offers a unique set of benefits and coverages tailored to fit the types of structure and equipment required to own and operate a farm or ranch. Farm insurance requires a bit of expertise, and Weed Ross has specialized in insuring farms since the beginning of our agency.
What does farm insurance cover?
Farm insurance covers a wide range of different structures, facilities, properties, and equipment. While each policy can be customized to your specific operation, most farmowners insurance packages provide coverage for the dwelling or structure itself, farm liability, farm machinery and equipment, livestock, and product. Machinery and livestock are often the most important components of a farming operation, so it’s important that these types of things are covered in your farm insurance policy. Just like home insurance, however, there are different claim limits for each of these aspects. Talk with your Weed Ross agent to see how your policy can be tailored to best-fit your needs.
Do I need farm insurance?
Farm insurance is strongly suggested for your farming practice, especially if it’s your main source of income and livelihood. Homeowners insurance doesn’t regularly cover farming activities or business procedures. This means that if your farm equipment was somehow damaged, your standard home insurance wouldn’t reimburse you or help with the costs at all. Additionally, farm insurance can possibly offer protection against a loss of income, even for hobby farms. Because of the extensive amount of particulars, Weed Ross offers several specific coverage options, and we have programs for:
- Hobby Farms
- Equestrian Exposures
- Hay Farms
- Dairy Farms
- Beef Farms
- And More
