Workshop Session: Saturday I

Flood, hail, drought, early frost, crashing market prices—these can be disastrous to a farm. Discover how a small investment in insurance can provide a safety net for your farm business. We’ll explain the options for coverage and the farm documentation you’ll need, offer advice on working with a crop insurance agent and processing a claim, and give you a crop insurance guidebook.
