Midwestern states are often referred to as the Corn Belt, and while corn is indeed a major crop, the nickname doesn’t capture the huge farming diversity that Ohio and its neighboring states represent. Ohio farmers grow, raise, and produce hundreds of agricultural products, supplying food and food-related commodities throughout the nation and the globe: soybeans, corn, wheat, livestock, poultry, vegetables, fruits, berries, nuts, and many more. Agribusiness Insurance helps you protect your business operations and your agricultural products.
At Hitchings Insurance Agency, our licensed insurance professionals and benefit managers are experienced at risk assessment and financial planning across a wide range of agriculture-related businesses. We are a one-stop shop for all your Ohio Agribusiness Insurance needs, from Liability Insurance and business-specific coverages to Health Insurance and Employee Benefits packages. We take care of you, your business, and your employees.
From Farm to Table
We work with a wide spectrum of the region’s agribusinesses, offering Agribusiness Insurance policies which cover the entire farm-to-table food chain: food processors, distributors, packers, manufacturers, warehousers, wholesalers, and more. We protect honey producers, cheese processers, and gourmet specialty food makers as well as large food manufacturing operations, retail farm markets, and butcher shops. We serve a broad range of agribusinesses from microbusinesses and hobby farms to large producers who employ hundreds of workers.
For many agribusinesses, we start with a Business Owners Policy (BOP), encompassing essential, core coverages, typically: Property insurance, Business Interruption Insurance, and General Liability Insurance. If you have employees, you are required by law to carry Workers’ Compensation Insurance, which typically must be purchased in addition to other small business packages.
From there, we work with you to determine if any other coverages make sense for your unique business needs. Some important coverages include Commercial Auto Insurance to protect business-use vehicles or fleets. Food producers often benefit by the boost in liability coverage that Commercial Umbrella Insurance and Cyber Liability Insurance provide.
We take care of your employees too – ask about Health Insurance and our full range of Employee Benefits.
