If you operate a farm, you'll know better than anyone that a farm faces unique challenges that no other businesses out there face. That's why there is specially designed rural insurance to help you protect yourself from the risks associated with maintaining and running your farm. With a rural insurance policy, you can be covered from damage to buildings, loss or theft of contents, as well as damage to machinery and vehicles. Your legal liability will also be covered from any injury or damage. Policies can also include protection for loss of profits or production, and interruption to your rural business.
Your policy can be specific or broad and can cover any of the following types of rural insurance:
Highly recommended for agricultural farms, or those practising horticulture. Protects you from costs associated with damage to your farm buildings, machinery and contents. Your greenhouse will be covered as well as costs of growing the plants within.
If your production or your farm as a whole would shut down if important infrastructure (eg. milking sheds) were to be damaged, this is the option for you. This insurance will cover you from lost turnover and will also pay extra wages that you need to maintain production manually. There is a number of optional extensions that can be attached, including natural disaster cover and electrical breakdown protection.
Covers your essential high value value animals for death, injury and fertility. Additional options are also available to extend your insurance to cover working dogs, horses, transit and livestock herds.
A specially designed rural insurance policy that will give your family assurance that your income will continue if you are brought low by injury, accident or ill health. This can be extended with other risk policies such as total permanent disablement, trauma insurance and medical cover.

Protection for stock and produce that is kept under refrigeration on your farm. If your refrigeration suffers failure and you lose your precious stock, with this insurance your costs will be completely covered. This can also be extended to include protection for genetic material.
