What is Farm Insurance?
Working on the land brings many rewards - but just as many risks. As a farm owner, you’re vulnerable to bushfires that can destroy livestock or damage your buildings and other property; machinery breakdown which can cost you time and money; personal illness or a serious accident; or even a claim from a guest injured on your property.
Who should consider it?
Whether you’re a large-scale crop grower or livestock producer or a small family or hobby farm, Farm Insurance can help protect your farm, it’s produce and livestock - and the people who benefit from it.
