Should I Get Farm or Ranch Insurance?
The first step in determining whether you need farm or ranch insurance is knowing if you live on one. A standard homeowners insurance policy might not give you adequate coverage if you do. To help you decide if you need a farm or ranch policy, we’ve broken down some determining factors. If you answer “yes” to any of the questions below then you likely need a farm insurance policy.
Are there additional structures on your property, other than a pool or a garage? If so, you might need a farm insurance policy. Typically, additional structures that would be covered by a farm policy include barns, sheds, stables and other buildings. If you are using a small building, such as a garage or greenhouse, to grow crops or plants for sale then you should consider a farm insurance policy. However, if the revenue from the commercial activity does not surpass the incidental income limit of your homeowners insurance policy, you do not need a farm or commercial insurance policy.
Workers on the property:
Does anyone work on your property? According to the 2012 U.S. Census, the average farm in the country spans 434 acres. That can be a lot for a single family to manage so, not surprisingly, many farms employ people to work at them. Whether they are harvesting agriculture or tending to livestock, workers are a liability if they are performing job tasks on your property. Some states even require there to be a workers compensation policy in place if there are two or more workers.
