Reasons to Insure Your Hobby Farm

Farm Insurance for Your Hobby Farm

Farm insurance isn’t just for large-scale farmers with thousands of acres and herds of cattle. If you have a hobby farm or small farm or ranch, you should seriously consider farm insurance. Here are a few reasons why.

Your Homeowners Policy Doesn’t Cover Your Hobby Farm

Most homeowners’ insurance policies exclude business and farming activities, meaning your hobby farm may not be covered if a storm damages your barns/shelters/etc. or if something is stolen. You’ve invested time and money into your hobby farm, and you wouldn’t want to pay for expensive repairs or replacements out of pocket.

Liability Purposes

If you use your small farm for agritourism events or grow and sell produce, you need liability coverage. Depending on how extensive your farming activities are, the liability coverage offered in a farm insurance policy might be enough. However, for product liability, additional policies could give you the coverage you need.
