Insuring Your Growing Business
While in the past, farm insurance covered most rural businesses related to food manufacturing, today’s commercial agricultural companies are more complicated than ever before. They could be transporting products and goods across vast stretches of land and require coverage for those events. Or, they may own Intellectual Property or patents which are valuable and need protection.

What We Cover
If you run an agricultural business of any kind, coverage is essential to protect your investment and your future profits. In this competitive industry, smaller companies, primarily, are often working to compete with much larger corporations. Being closed for days or weeks due to fire, theft or any other loss can close your business. Not having the right coverage also puts you at risk of legal claims, which can target the assets of your company. Finally, insurance ensures you don’t have to leverage your company or dig into profits or savings to pay for losses.
Property & Casualty
Property Insurance covers the loss of business property due to theft, fire or other covered reasons. This coverage can protect you from the loss of the property and may allow you to replace or repair the property which has been stolen or lost. This can also help with additional expenses related, such as the cost of renting a new property to replace the damaged assets.

Pollution Insurance provides coverage for claims associated with clean-up costs, as well as covering injury to third parties, such as neighbors harmed by a release of toxic substances. The costs of a chemical spill or any leak of hazardous materials can be enormous for an organization, making pollution insurance mission-critical for most businesses. A pollution claim can result in expensive clean-up costs, as well as property or bodily damage.
Also, a pollution liability claim can easily result in litigation and investigation to determine who is responsible. The costs of legal teams and investigations can be significant, especially since these claims tend to involve multiple parties. The producer of the harmful pollutant, the owner, and tenant of the business property where the spill or exposure took place and other parties may all be considered when evaluating a claim.
