5/11/2021The Small or Hobby FarmThe small farmer has always been with us. Insurance company’s appetite for this type of insured has waxed and waned. Are they commercial risks or personal lines risks? This session will make it very clear the small farmer is BOTH. As such, agents attending this presentation will find that Farm Liability and Farm Property coverages have areas where they do a good job and areas where they leave the insured with uncovered exposures. The same can be said for Commercial General Liability and Commercial Property coverages. To add to the confusion, many times insurance companies seem a bit confused – often personal lines underwriters, handling the business and commercial needs, are not as well understood as they should be. When these risks are being underwritten in the commercial lines department, confusion often exists there too – particularly as to personal liability exposure. As always, the insurance professional MUST be conversant in both arenas to meet the needs of these clients.3.00051121AM
