When a farm operation suffers a barn fire, not only is the loss felt due to the loss of livestock, equipment and the building, but the family feels the stress and has to then deal with the process of putting everything back together. OMAFRA has assembled the attached booklet giving a 'Best Practices' suggestion of what can be done to hopefully avoid this from happening in the first place.
Please read this report and review your building values, thinking about what you would need in order to ensure you have adequate coverage on the building and all items within should you loose them to a fire.
If you would like a hard copy of this, please give our office a call or complete the form "Reducing the Risk of Fire on your Farm" and we will mail one to you.
Protection For An Ever Changing World
If you are operating your farm with computerized equipment, have you thought to insure it? This includes soil, weather and crop sensors.
Are you protected for a financial loss? How about being covered for lost earnings while a part of your business is being restored?
What about something as seemingly innocuous as a hayride or a haunted house occasionally offered at the farm to generate some extra income? If someone is hurt at one of those events, a standard Farm Insurance policy will not cover it. That could make you the target of a lawsuit you are left unprotected to defend.
Insurance people call these "protection gaps." Farm operations possess the potential for a lot of them. And any missing sliver of protection not adequately addressed could cost you money, time or even your farm!
