What parts of a Farm can be Covered?

Farm Buildings

When insuring local farms, the brokers at Rozon Insurance know that many farmers live and work on their farm. One of the primary insurance needs is often the home you live in, we will review the coverage required to adequately cover your dwelling in the event of an insured loss. Farm insurance is a product designed specifically to cover your farm in the event of a covered loss such as burglary and fire, or against certain natural disasters like hail or lightning.

Farm Outbuildings

This coverage applies to buildings on your property other than your home. Structures like barns, stables, sheds, silos, grain bins, and other farm related dwellings like generator buildings. We understand that a sudden or catastrophic event damaging these buildings can disrupt your business and will assist you in purchasing the right insurance to minimize the disruption and get you back on track as quickly as possible.

Additional Living Expenses

In the event of a claim, your family may need to relocate temporarily. This type of insurance can cover you for reasonable increased expenses while you can’t live in your home or carry out your usual activities. Having coverage for extra costs related to temporary lodging, moving/storage, pet boarding, additional food, and utilities can bring you peace of mind during what can often be a stressful situation.

Contents of Farm Buildings

Coverage provides insurance to replace the items in your dwelling if you have a loss such as a fire, theft, or certain weather-related incidents. Contents refers to your personal belongings such as clothing, electronics, jewelry, furniture, children’s toys and much more. It is important to note that some items like jewelry, collections, bicycles, and luggage are subject to specific limits, it is important to review these items with our experienced brokers to avoid any issues in the event of a claim.

What Additional Coverages are Possible?

Farm Liability

Liability insurance is an especially important component of commercial coverage, particularly since farms can come with increased risks that could lead to injury on and off your premises. Liability insurance can protect you if someone hurts themselves on your farm, providing coverage for litigation or financial damages. Farms that are open to the public can require additional and specialized liability coverage.

Equipment/Machinery

This coverage protects your machinery in the event of insured losses, such as physical damage, fire, theft, or certain weather-related incidents. Everything from tools to tractors can be critical to the smooth operation of your business and we understand that these things can be expensive to repair or replace. Many policies include additional expense coverage for the rental of equipment required to keep your farming operations up and running.

Business Interruption

This coverage protects your income if something happens that interrupts the regular course of business activities on your farm. In the event of an insured loss, coverage often responds to incidents like flood, fire, or mechanical breakdowns. These types of events can result in a business closure for many months or, in some cases, years. This coverage can help with the costs of getting your business back up and running.
