Our roots lie in agriculture.
We began in 1925 by providing insurance for Illinois farmers. We now serve more than a million households throughout the United States, including many of our farmers who feed the world. We also help support local agriculture by hosting a variety of special events and neighborhood booths at Farmers Markets throughout the season. Support farmers by shopping local. You'll enjoy fresh, healthy produce and boost the regional economy.
