Hobby Farm vs Commercial Farm

An example of lack of coverage for your hobby farm would be the undisclosed sale of eggs at a local farmer’s market, which later are determined to have caused a food illness. If any insurance claims were to arise from the situation, you as the farmer would be solely responsible for any liability.

These gaps in coverage happen more often than you would think – it is important to protect yourself.


The cost of your insurance is determined by a number of variables:

  • The type of activities carried out on your farm
  • The size of your farm
  • The location of your farm
  • The turnover of your business
