What is Farm Insurance and Who Needs it?

Each farm in Alberta is unique and has a diverse and complex operation. From hobby farms to large-scale businesses – they are a central part to many Albertan communities. We know that for many farmers the place where you work is also where you call home. That’s why it’s important to have coverage that protects what matters to you if the unexpected happens.

Farm Insurance Coverage Options

  • Commercial General Liability – Covers property damage, injuries and potential legal expenses caused by negligent acts by yourself or an employee.
  • Dwellings and Farm Outbuildings – This can include coverage on barns, greenhouses, workshops and sheds that are located on your and will help cover any losses that may occur.
  • Farm Machinery and Tools – Farmers need a lot of equipment to get the job done including tractors, combines and a variety of other tools. This type of coverage protects the gear needed for your operations.

  • Agricultural Products – Coverage for your crops and other sources of income that are grown on your farm.
  • Business Interruption / Loss of Income – If you are forced to stop farming operations due to unforeseen circumstances, this coverage can help you by providing funds so you can continue to pay the essentials while you wait for the work to continue.
  • Production Cost Insurance – Uses a historical margin and adds the input costs of farming (seeds, fertilizer and chemical) to establish a guarantee on revenue.
  • Livestock and Poultry – Addresses the specific risks that can come with livestock and poultry farming over other agriculture types.
  • Pollution Insurance – This coverage can help you cover legal expenses if the manufacturing process for one of your products causes harm or property damage.
