We Are Here to Help Your NC Farm Grow
Insurance is important to the success of your farm business and a knowledgeable agent will help you consider the exposures and risks you routinely face. We are committed to protecting you with a complete farm owners insurance program which can be designed to cover every aspect of your farming operation including your buildings, machinery, equipment, livestock, stock, and liability.
In addition to broad coverage for farm equipment, specialized policies for poultry houses and hog houses are available that cover loss of use and replacement cost. Our farm products are not just a commercial property policy or homeowners policy stretched to fit your farming operation. Each policy is tailored and flexible to meet your specific farming risks.
We can simplify your insurance program through packaging each line of coverage into a comprehensive policy. Not only will this save you money in the long run, it also simplifies the billing and claims processes. Our Farm Insurance programs can include coverages for farm auto, commercial umbrella, and general liability. Optional coverages can be added as well to fit your needs: borrowed farm machinery, extended custom farm operations, peak season stock coverage and milk contamination.
What is Covered? What Are You Paying For?
First Pioneer Insurance Agency will guide you through your coverage options by getting to know your needs. We will match your farming operation piece by piece to a streamlined policy to meet your specific requirements.
