Common Farm Insurance Questions
What is farm insurance?
Farm insurance is specifically designed to cover the risks and liabilities associated with owning and operating an agricultural enterprise. It is a lot like other business insurance options and is designed to protect the operator’s bottom line in the face of costly, unexpected and unavoidable problems. The right coverage can greatly reduce your financial burden for these accidents and protect your solvency.
What does farm insurance cover?
There are many insurance options from which farms can benefit. Some of the most purchased benefits include:
Farm Livestock Insurance: A loss to your animals could mean a loss of profit. Therefore, this coverage can help you recover the results.
Equine Insurance:Horses are often valuable both for farm operations and their market value. Therefore, when you breed or raise horses, a single loss might cost you a lot of money. This coverage can insure your horses against death, injuries and other hazards.
Farm Equipment Insurance:Should important assets like pumps, rakes, sprayers and other tools get damaged, then this coverage can help pay for those items.
Tractor Insurance: Standard equipment insurance often doesn’t cover tractors or other farm vehicles. You can buy separate coverage to protect these items against damage or other losses.
Farm Dwelling Insurance: If you live on your farm, then this policy can cover your home.
Farm Structures Insurance:This coverage insures barns, grain silos and other property.
Commercial Auto Insurance: Vehicles owned by the farm or used in its operations will need commercial auto insurance rather than personal auto insurance.
Farm Liability Insurance: Your operations might cause bodily injuries or property damage to various people, including your clients. This coverage can help you repay them for their losses.
Umbrella Insurance:Under standard liability insurance, there will be limits. However, if a claim exceeds these limits, then umbrella liability coverage can help cover remaining costs.
Workers’ Compensation Insurance: If you hire full- or part-time employees in your operation, then you will likely have to buy workers’ compensation. It will pay an employee supplementary income if work-related injuries or illnesses force me off the job.
If your farm is also your residential property, then you can insure both your commercial and personal assets by investing in a farm owners policy. It will provide both property coverage and the necessary liability coverage to protect you both in your operations and your home.
Keep in mind, the agriculture industry is one that is highly regulated. Therefore, you’ll usually face several insurance requirements in order to operate. Speak to your agent to learn more about your own coverage requirements.
Why do I need farm insurance?

After all, if you can’t afford to rebuild your operation, then you might lose your entire business in a worst-case scenario. Insurance makes sure that you are able to avoid this scenario.
