    Default Sideliner Product Liability Insurance?

    Just wondering what other small-scale beekeepers do about product liability insurance when selling only via word-of-mouth and farmer's markets?

    For a few hundred bucks it depends on how much honey ur selling.

    We have found that Farm Bureau Financial Services understands what we do and have product liability (and other products) through them.

    I also had never heard of this agency until today, but here is their website, specifically, their page on Beekeeping Insurance!

    Were you able to find product liability insurance for your beekeeping business? If you are making your living off of selling honey, I would strongly recommend you consider getting insurance (or at least get a quote). I can help you get a quote if you are doing business in Arizona, Texas or Nevada. If you need help finding a broker in another state, let me know too!

    Got liability insurance last week from Farm Family Insurance. The agent was familiar with the beekeeping/honey selling issues I had been concerned about. The process was fast, easy and hassle free. I think a good and knowledgeable broker helps, but Farm Family is worth while looking into.
    I'm on Long Island in NY, and can stop worrying every time I sell a bunch of 1 lb. honey bottles to a farm stand for resale to retail customers.
