What Is Farm Insurance?
Farm Insurance is an insurance policy that extends coverage to barns, buildings as well as other structures located on your farm. Farm Insurance covers liability for the farmland and operations. The policy can also cover contents used for your farming operations such as farm machinery, equipment, tools and parts.
Who Needs Farm Insurance?
If you are farming in Ontario, you should have a policy that properly protects your farm and farming equipment. A standard homeowners insurance policy may not give you proper coverage for your farming operation and farm equipment.
Farm Insurance Coverages to Consider
Farm Liability Coverage
Farm Liability coverage is an important part of a farm insurance policy because it covers the production, processing, and distribution of agricultural products.
Most farm package policies include both farm and home liability which covers liability for your farming operations and your personal liability. Some common farm liability exposures are:
- Third party bodily injury or third party property damage on your farm property
- Animals that escape, animal bites
- Public access to animals
- Slow moving farm machinery on the road
- Custom farming, drying and spraying for others
- Boarding of someone else’s animals
- Pollution discharge
- Other operations aside from farming being performed on the farm, such as storing other’s boats, trailer etc.
Your farm liability coverage can also be extended to the following risks:
- farm locations that you own or rent
- custom farming you may do
- pick your own activities that you offer on your farm
- roadside stands
- showing your animals at fairs or exhibitions
- boarding other people’s animals at your farm
- if you allow the public onto your farm for such things as syrup bush tours or adventure farm activities
To ensure you have the property farm liability coverage in place be sure to review all of your farm operations and activities with your insurance broker.
Limited Farm Pollution Liability Insurance
An optional coverage that can be added to a farm package policy is Limited Farm Pollution Liability. This covers legal liability for third party damages caused by an unexpected and unintentional pollution discharge from a structure or container.
