Custom Insurance Solutions for Your Farm or Agribusiness

Every farm and agribusiness is unique, so your insurance should be, too. Our expert brokers will get to know your operations so we can make sure you get the right insurance policy with the best value. Here are some of the coverages you may need:

  • Farm Building

    Coverage to repair or replace barns and outbuildings if they’re damaged or destroyed. It’s important to think about usage when determining coverage for replacement costs — for example, if you have to rebuild a barn after a loss, a different type of barn may be more suitable for your current operations.

  • Livestock

    We offer a range of specialized coverages, such as entrapment, mortality, lightening, hardware and transport, to meet the needs of livestock operations of all sizes.

  • Produce

    This coverage is essential for protecting your harvested crops from losses such as fire or theft. Whether you grow apples, grain, hay or any other produce, the fruits of your labour need to be insured.

  • Farm Liability

    This coverage protects you and your farm operations from liability for injury or property damage resulting from your operations, whether on your property or off. It provides coverage for anything you are legally liable for, including livestock causing an accident or injury or damage caused by your equipment while travelling on the road.

  • Pollution Liability

    Ontario has strict legislation for pollution liability, and if you are responsible for environmental damage, such as an accidental chemical or oil spill, the cost of cleanup, damages and legal costs can be significant. It’s important to have this specialty insurance to cover these costs and protect your personal and business assets.

  • Business Interruption

    This coverage replaces lost income as a result of an interruption of your regular business operations due to a loss or other insurance claim.

  • Accident and Sickness

    This coverage provides funds to pay the wages of hired help if you are involved in an accident or experience a serious illness and are unable to work. There are specific limits depending on your coverage, so it’s important to discuss this carefully with your broker.

  • Commercial Auto and Fleet

    Coverage for vehicles used in your farm operations. In addition to standard auto coverages, such as collision, liability and accident benefits, you may also need:

    • Auto and Fleet: Special coverage if you have five or more commercial vehicles on your policy. Reduced rates may be available.
    • Trailers: Covers repair costs on your commercial trailer if it’s damaged while being towed.
    • Temporary Replacement Vehicle: When you make a claim requiring repairs, this optional coverage provides you with a rental vehicle, so your business can keep moving forward.
    • Waiver of Depreciation/Replacement Value: If your commercial vehicle is stolen or damaged beyond repair, this optional enhancement provides the replacement value, rather than the actual cash value.
  • Agribusiness Coverages

    Income Replacement/Business Interruption
    This coverage replaces lost income as a result of an interruption of your regular business operations due to a loss or other insurance claim.

    Comprehensive General Liability
    Complete coverage for liability if a person is injured or property is damaged during the course of business operations.

    Umbrella Liability
    An extra or excess layer of liability coverage that will cover your business when the primary liability coverage limits have been depleted or reached as a result of a claim.

    Insurance to Value
    An assessment or evaluation completed in order to calculate the cost to replace a building or structure as close as possible to its original state.

    Cyber Risk
    If a data breach or other cybersecurity issue occurs, this covers costs such as recovery of information, network repairs, legal claims and public relations services.

    Commercial Auto and Fleet
    Coverage for vehicles used in your agribusiness. In addition to standard auto coverages, such as collision, liability and accident benefits, you may also need:

    • Auto and Fleet: Special coverage if you have five or more commercial vehicles on your policy. Reduced rates may be available.
    • Trailers: Covers repair costs on your commercial trailer if it’s damaged while being towed.
    • Temporary Replacement Vehicle: When you make a claim requiring repairs, this optional coverage provides you with a rental vehicle, so your business can keep moving forward.
    • Waiver of Depreciation/Replacement Value: If your commercial vehicle is stolen or damaged beyond repair, this optional enhancement provides the replacement value, rather than the actual cash value.
