Farm Environmental Insurance

ABOUT OUR COVERAGE

The program is specifically designed to address the common loss exposures in farming.  These customized insurance policies cover:

  • Bodily injury and property damage, and on-site/off-site cleanup costs resulting from a pollution condition at, on, or emanating from a covered location(s) or operations.

  • Legal costs associated with defense against these claims are covered under the policy but do erode the aggregate limit of liability. This should be considered when selecting the limits of liability on the policy.

  • Pollution losses arising from groundwater and surface water contamination, odors, over-application of manure or herbicides and pesticides, and the exacerbation of the levels of nitrates in groundwater or wells in addition to the coverage.
