Manage Your Risk with Crop Insurance
Crop Insurance and Farm Credit
No one knows agriculture like Farm Credit. When the Farm Service Agency stopped selling crop insurance in 1997, it became necessary for farmers to rely on private insurance companies for their crop insurance needs. Who better to fill that need than an ag expert like Farm Credit?
Today, we have full-time experienced crop insurance agents on staff. That is their only job--crop insurance. You will not find a more knowledgeable, helpful staff with over 25 years of policy writing experience. Not only do they just want to be your agent; they want to be a resource for you and a consultant on your team.
Why Buy Crop Insurance?
Crop insurance is a risk management tool that is used to put a safety net under cash income. When production is low or harmful weather such as floods, drought, hail or wind storms come along, it could be devastating to your crop. Crop insurance protects farmers so that they can financially meet both their personal and business obligations - it helps to ensure farm business survival.
How Much Does Crop Insurance Cost?
Through our multiple insurance providers, our agents have access to systems that allow you to compare several coverage levels to pick the one that best suits your farm operation. As with any insurance, the cost is relevant to the size of the underlying risk. And our agents are up to date on any available subsidies.
How Do I Sign Up?
Signing up is easy. Simply give us a call or drop us an email. Our agents will help you understand which products are available in your county, and the important features of each product.
