KEEP YOUR FARM AFLOAT IN TIMES OF TROUBLE.
The farming and agricultural industry often involves risk and uncertainty. From unexpected natural disasters to major economic changes in the marketplace, many situations can affect the productivity of your agribusiness.
At Adams Insurance Agency, we know that the success of your farm directly impacts the livelihood of you and your family. With the right Crop Insurance coverage, you can protect your business and keep your farm afloat through all of the difficult times.
Adams Insurance Agency offers two basic types of Crop Insurance for your farm or ranch:
- Crop-yield insurance covers excess losses to your crops due to natural disasters such as drought or flood as well as other perils like insects or disease.
- Crop-revenue insurance covers negative changes in the price of a crop that occurs during the crop’s growing season.
You’ve poured years of hard labor and honest work into your agribusiness, and when times are tough, you’ll need an agency you can depend on. Talk to a specialist at Adams Insurance Agency to learn more about how Crop Insurance can help ensure the continued service of your farm for years to come.
Farm Owners Insurance
YOU HAVE MADE IT YOUR LIVING. KEEP IT PROTECTED
There are probably a lot of reasons for why you chose to make your living on the farm – from the independence and freedom that comes with owning your own business to knowing the value of a hard day’s work. At Adams Insurance Agency, we are in the business of seeing yours succeed. We know that your farm or ranch provides a valuable service to the community, and we would like to return the favor by offering you the comprehensive protection you deserve.
A Farm Owners policy from Adams Insurance Agency is an all-inclusive and customizable insurance solution to secure your land, your property, and your finances against a number of inevitable situations that can arise on your farm. The basic package includes property coverage for your dwelling, personal property, and other structures, as well as the added peace of mind that comes with comprehensive liability coverage.
For most people, a farm is more than a place to work – it is also where you lay your head after a long day. Under the dwellingportion of your Farm Owners policy, Adams Insurance Agency will help pay for damages to your home and any attached structures for all accidents and perils included in your policy.
Your Farm Owners policy also covers losses that may arise due to the damage or theft of personal belongings such as clothing, electronics, or home appliances. Items used in daily farm operations such as machinery, automobiles, and animals are not eligible for coverage under the personal property section of your policy, as they require additional protection.
Liability protection from Adams Insurance Agency helps pay for legal fees, medical expenses, and other losses that you may be held liable for, that result from covered injuries or damage to other people’s property. Further coverage options, including employee injury liability, are available for an additional premium.
Farm Livestock Insurance
ANIMALS ARE ASSETS TOO
As the owner and operator of an independent farm or ranch, you have made a number of investments into your agribusiness – equipment, machinery, and crops. Livestock is also a big investment for farmers and ranchers alike, and like any financial asset, you will want to ensure a high-level of security and protection – so your animals will stay covered.
At Adams Insurance Agency, we know that the health and safety of your animals directly affects the health and profitability of your farm. Livestock Insurance can protect you and your farm against the financial losses that could occur if your animals are harmed or killed as a result of a covered accident such as a fire, blizzard, or other natural disasters – even when your animals are in transit.
Livestock Insurance policies will vary from person to person, farm to farm, and animal to animal. The insurance value of each animal is usually its purchase price, but other factors such as performance level or value of your animal’s offspring can increase that value. A specialist at Adams Insurance Agency can help you determine the right amount of coverage at a price that meets your needs.
LIVE TO RIDE
You’ve spent time training, taking care of, and most likely competing with your horse. And as a proud owner, it is up to you to ensure its safety and well being. Since your horse represents both a financial and emotional investment, medical expenses can be costly.
An Equine Insurance policy from Adams Insurance Agency provides coverage for a variety of costs and expenses related to the upkeep of your animal. Our policy options include:
- Full Mortality and Theft – to insure your animals against death as a result of injury, illness, disease, humane destruction, transportation, or theft.
- Major Medical Coverage* – to provide reimbursement for the cost of medical and surgical bills caused by accident, sickness, or disease.
- Loss of Use – for compensation in the event your horse becomes totally and permanently unable to perform the duty for which it was insured.
- Stallion infertility – for coverage in the event your stallion becomes permanently incapable of producing offspring due to an accident, illness, or disease.
Finding the right coverage options for your horse does not have to be difficult. At Adams Insurance Agency, one of our insurance specialists can help educate you on the different coverage options and rates available for your special animal, and together you can build the perfect policy that fits the needs of you and your horse.
*Major Medical Coverage is an addition to the Full Mortality policy and cannot be purchased alone.
Farm Equipment Insurance
KEEP YOUR EQUIPMENT RUNNING STRONG
As a farmer, you rely on your equipment to run like clockwork. But in the event of equipment breakdown or failure, it can be difficult and expensive to repair. Damaged or broken equipment can easily cost thousands of dollars to replace, which is why Farm Equipment Insurance is just as important to your agribusiness as the equipment itself.
At Adams Insurance Agency, we are dedicated to the success of your farm or ranch, and we understand that equipment breakdown can mean lost income. That is why we design comprehensive insurance policies to keep farms running smoothly in the event of an accident. Equipment breakdown coverage goes beyond your standard Property Insurance policy to protect against damage caused by power surges, mechanical breakdown, motor burnout, and even operator error.
Equipment and machinery included under a Farm Equipment Insurance policy includes, but is not limited to:
- Heating and Cooling Systems
- Production Equipment
- Boilers, Pressure Vessels, and Water Heaters
- Electrical Distribution Systems
- Refrigeration Equipment

Farm Dwelling Insurance
IT IS MORE THAN A FARM. IT IS YOUR HOME
Operating a farm or ranch is a unique business in many ways. One big difference from most other jobs is that many farmers do not just work on their property – they live there too. And having the right protection depends on the situation of each individual family.
While not as comprehensive as a complete Farm Owners policy, some people may find that Farm Dwelling coverage is enough to meet their needs.
Dwelling Insurance from Adams Insurance Agency protects the building you live in and any attached structures, including rental properties, by helping to pay for damages that result from a covered incident. Depending on your specific policy options, it can also include additional coverage for personal property or provide additional living expenses if your home becomes uninhabitable due to a covered loss.
Other insurance provisions such as Liability or Medical Payments coverage are not included in a Farm Dwelling policy, so if you are looking for a more complete solution for all your Farm Insurance needs, a comprehensive Farm Owners policy may be the right choice for you. Talk to a specialist at Adams Insurance Agency to learn more about how our insurance solutions can best benefit your agribusiness.
Farm Structures Insurance
SECURE YOUR FARM FROM THE GROUND UP

Barns, machine sheds, and granaries are essential elements that keep your farming operations running smoothly. But, in the event of a disaster, the loss of important property can disrupt business and be financially devastating.
