Georgia Farm Insurance

Farm insurance is essential for protecting your farm investment, whether it's a small hobby farm or a large commercial operation. Jack Bradley Agency offers comprehensive coverage tailored to meet the diverse needs of farms of all sizes and types. Because we are an independent insurance agency, we have choices when it comes to carriers.

What is Farm Insurance?

  • Protection for your Investment: Farm insurance safeguards your farm against unforeseen events, recognizing that it’s a significant life investment.
  • Coverage Components: Typical farm insurance policies cover dwellings, farm structures, personal property, inland marine assets (for example tractors and equipment), and liability.

How much will you pay for Farm Insurance?

Your farm insurance policy is most often made up of the specific options you choose. How much you'll pay for your policy depends on:

  • Options you select - Often farm insurance options are priced individually, so how much you'll pay for your policy depends on what coverages you buy.
  • How much you want to cover - Higher deductibles usually lower your premium price by shifting part of the loss payment to you. For example, if you had a $1000 deductible, you would be responsible for paying the first $1000 of the covered loss.
  • Where you set your limits - You may choose to set higher limits than the recommended amount if appropriate to your situation and needs.

Worried you aren’t completely covered? Consider an umbrella policy that extends your coverage.

Coverages to Consider:

The amount you pay for your farm owners insurance depends on many factors. Think of your entire farm from personal housing situation to all things farm related, and the assets you want to protect.

    These could be rental housing or provided as part of compensation.

Protect the Things that Matter to You

Farming is not just a home or a business it’s a way of life!

Make an inventory of your home and personal belongings. If possible, make a list as well as take photos or video – using two inventory methods can help expedite the claim resolution process. Keep this list somewhere other than your home. Keep in mind that your policy doesn’t cover damages caused by poor or deferred maintenance on your part. Don't forget to create an inventory of your farm structures, and equipment as well.
