Whether it’s Small “Gentlemen” Farms, Large Crop, or Livestock Operations, HMSB Has You Covered!
Here in central Indiana, we have a rich heritage of family farms going back generations. Many of the largest and best of these farms began with a modest plot of land staked out by our ancestors. We understand what it takes to succeed in this business and how much hard work and sacrifice it has taken to reach the level many have achieved.
Insuring a farm properly is an involved process. There are so many facets of coverage that trusting an inexperienced agent could prove to be very costly at claim time. The farm agents at HMSB writing coverage have grown up in the business. Understanding the complex insurance needs in today’s agricultural climate has never been more critical.
At HMSB, we are continually striving for improvement by staying current on trends in the industry, educational opportunities and just getting out and staying in touch with our clients to constantly re-evaluate their changing needs. Our goal is to always be pro-active in our offering you the very best coverage available for your farm. You and your family can rest assured that with our comprehensive approach, it will be unnecessary for you to go anywhere else!
From home, personal autos, life & health, land, crops, livestock, barns, equipment & commercial vehicles – we do it all! We understand that farming is hard work & some time to relax is not only well-deserved, but needed! With that in mind, we also cover all of the “toys” around your farm, such as: 4 wheelers, boats, campers, motor-homes, etc. You name it – we can protect it for you!
Just as there are many different types of farms, there also many different farm insurance carriers. As we’ve done with all of our other lines of coverage, we’ve selected the “best of the best” to take care of our clients farming needs. A few of these highly respected, top rated companies are:
Indiana Farmers Mutual Insurance
Performance in Time of Adversity Since 1877
The insurance company that once delivered policies in a horse-drawn buggy has evolved into a modern technologically efficient company without losing that caring touch for personal service. Online information and the expertise of an independent insurance agent, coupled with Indiana Farmers Mutual Insurance Company’s products, service and caring attitude will help our customers through any adversity.
Growing Together in Farming & Agribusiness
Westfield Insurance was founded in 1848 as Ohio Farmers Insurance Company and was built by farmers to offer protection for their community’s livelihood. The company also gained experience outside of insurance when it successfully owned and operated its own dairy farm and exhibited a show-string of registered Jersey cows. With more than a century and a half of experience in farm protection, we are the oldest writers of farm owner business in the nation. When you need insurance protection for your farm or commercial agribusiness, place your trust in a company who shares your roots and understands your needs.

PENN MILLERS MUTUAL INSURANCE
At Penn Millers, we understand your needs because agribusiness is our heritage. Over a century ago, 57 millers who had difficulty obtaining insurance organized our company. We’ve been providing protection to the agribusiness industry ever since. The original mill owners found that by a policy of careful selection, strict underwriting, regular inspection and engineering each risk — losses could be reduced and rates kept low. The concept caught on in 1887 and continues today.
