Property and Casualty

Your property and equipment are some of your most important assets. When a breakdown or damage occurs, we will work to have you back up and running as fast as possible. We know that every operation is different, and we work to customize coverage for your specific needs.

Employee Benefits and Wellness

Employees are as important if not more important than your equipment and facilities for a successful business. Attracting and retaining those employees may include offering benefits like such as group medical, and dental insurance. There are other available options that may be a better fit for your operation including an Individual Coverage Health Reimbursement Arrangement (ICHRA) or a variety of  Voluntary Benefits like disability or critical illness which can be structured at no additional cost to the employer.


With advances in agricultural methods and equipment comes the use and more reliance on technology. Hardware and software used in operations can be compromised by outside actors. Sensitive data may also be at risk. This can leave a business vulnerable to shutdowns, penalties, and fines. We can evaluate a companies’ needs for Cybersecurity Coverages to help protect and replace your technological assets.

Product Recall Coverage

Protecting the integrity of your agriculture business and its reputation are more important than ever. Product recalls can devastate an organization if they are not planned for ahead of time. Product Recall Insurance covers more than a General Liability Policy and can be structured to reimburse a business for losses and expenses incurred from a covered product recall event.

Executive Risk

As an Agricultural Executive or Owner, you may be at risk from decisions that were made in our litigious society. Protecting you and your business is done through a customized approach after we understand you and your operation.

Claims Management and Advocacy

As a full-service risk management and insurance brokerage, we can handle all claims from start to finish. Our in house team of experienced Client Managers work directly with clients and carriers to facilitate a quick resolution to your claim. Our job is not over until your Agricultural claim has been settled.
