Crop Insurance for Organic Producers


Workshop audio recording from the 2017 MOSES Organic Farming Conference.

Saturday Session III

The Whole Farm Risk Plan is a federally subsidized crop insurance product, and may be just what is in order to insure the revenue from your multiple-crop organic-based operation. It is designed to work with your past and expected revenue and expenses, and is not held to the constraints of certain yields or prices that other federally subsidized crop insurance products are. Risk protection is available for diversified farming operations–learn how to use it.

Roxann Brixen has worked in crop insurance for 18 years, focused on underwriting policies and training others. While they do not currently farm their land, Roxann and her husband have raised a variety of livestock and crops on their small family farm near Eau Claire, Wis.
