Farm Insurance

Farm Insurance

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.

That’s why farm insurance can help protect your farm and its produce, and the wellbeing of you, your family and the people that pass through 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, its produce and livestock – and the people who benefit from it.
