    Default Insurance for commercial beekeeper in PA

    Hey everyone, I know someone who is starting a commercial venture in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania.

    He asked me to help him find insurance for his business, and I am having trouble finding options for him. He is looking for equipment insurance, general liability, as well as what is considered, at least here in Florida, basic agricultural insurance.

    If anyone has any leads they can share with me, I would most appreciate it!
    I started out as an opportunistic beekeeper. Now the bees keep me...

    Lester Kalmanson Agency: "Bee Mortality and Transit Coverage"

    https://www.lkalmanson.com/index.php...d=17&Itemid=29
    The office phone number has a 407 area code, which is Orlando FL.

    I don't know anything about them, other than finding their web site.



    Oops, now I see that while the OP is indeed in Florida, he was asking about PA.

    I have a policy with Key Stone Insur.1-888-502-0674 I deal with the local office (Roby Foster Insur.) The policy covers me for 1 million in product liability and bee related mishaps it is listed as honey extracting. They told me that all my bee yards are covered and any products I sell. They even offered to cover loss of bees but I wasn't interested in that. A little over $400 per year. I don't know if they are in other states or not.

    Mark, is this the same as Farmers Insurance? I have a Texas Company but not entirely sure they are in tune with my needs.

    farm family was started as a mutual [co-operative] insurance company many years ago by ny farm bureau and worked with some other northeast farm bureaus. it was sold off as a private company and has since cut all ties with ny farm bureau. ny farm bureau now has a relationship with nationwide. farm family mostly operates in the northeast. my dad used to be a director years ago. I have used farm family for truck insurance for years, a real good outfit. I am not impressed with nationwide. when farm family went private I got a small check, my dad voted for it, bad move as far as I am concerned I wish it was still a mutual co.

    No. Farm Family Casualty Insurance Corporation is different.
