10 Jan Protecting Your Farm is the Only Way to Grow
If you own and operate a farm and don’t already have coverage, take a look at what farm insurance can do for you. Whether your operation is small or large, you raise crops and livestock, or own a piece of land, you should consider purchasing farm insurance to protect your property.
Here are a few reasons you might want to purchase farm insurance:
Liability: You’ll want to be covered in case of an accident or someone becoming ill from anything they may have consumed from your farm. If you’re not worried about your friends suing you, you have to be aware that if you are sued, it’s most likely that individual’s insurance company. This is why it is so important to protect yourself and your farm if anything were to happen. Farm products such as eggs and poultry are examples of what would be covered under farm insurance.
Farm Products: All farm products ruined by disasters are covered by farm insurance. All equipment, feed, and other supplies will be protected in case of any damage done to your property. Disasters such as fire or flood can happen anywhere and you’ll want to be sure you have farm insurance to protect you and your farm.
Farming Equipment: Homeowner’s Insurance typically doesn’t cover large farm equipment, or any farm equipment for that matter. However, with farm insurance, you can protect your tractor and other equipment used for farming purposes.
Livestock: If your farm includes Horses, llamas, Sheep, Goats, etc., they will all be covered under a farm insurance policy. Barns and Pens for your animals will also be covered and will help protect your farm in case of any unfortunate damage or loss.
Your farm is more than just a farm and you want to make sure you have all the coverage you need. Protect your property and liability exposures.
