Farming insurance from leaders in the field

Rural Mutual is the #1 writer of farm insurance in Wisconsin for a good reason...

Founded by farmers, for farmers, we understand in our bones your unique needs, whatever size your farm operation. Even better, our knowledge is specific to Wisconsin, which is the only market we serve. The premiums you pay stay here, making Wisconsin strong.

21st century agriculture continues to grow more complex, more expensive, more risky. Our coverage prevents the challenges that are a regular part of farm life from destroying your operation. 

Our farm coverage options include your home and personal items, farm buildings, vehicles, farm personal property and workers’ compensation for your farm employees. And we offer a broad range of non-farm coverage. Our multi-policy discount makes insuring all your risks with Rural Mutual the right choice.

“The right insurance can make the difference between getting back on your feet and losing it all.”

– Jeremie P.
