If you’ve ever wondered, the answer is no. You don’t have to be a farmer to purchase Insurance from Farm Bureau.
So, what’s in the name? It’s a question the folks at Farm Bureau Insurance are proud to answer. We are more than just an Insurance Company, we are invested in Mississippi. It’s our home state, too! That’s why we are known as The Home Team!
With the formation of the American Farm Bureau in 1919, farmers wanted to create an organization to “make the business of farming more profitable, and the community a better place to live,” a statement approved by their members in 1920.
The development of that national network allowed greater purchasing power for seed, equipment, and other farm necessities. In addition to that, it gave farm families social and educational opportunities that enriched their everyday lives.
The strength of that national front led to the recognition that rural communities could benefit by starting their own insurance companies as a way to protect their farms, homes, and families.
In the late 1940’s Mississippi Farm Bureau Insurance would proudly begin serving these families with insurance products to protect their farms and their families.
Supporting Mississippi Agriculture
With more than 70 years of serving Mississippians from all walks of life, Mississippi Farm Bureau Insurance believes that prosperous agriculture benefits all Americans. That’s why our products and services are available to all families—in fact, as the #2 Auto and Property Insurer in Mississippi, the majority of our policyholders are not farmers!
Becoming a Farm Bureau member and a Mississippi Farm Bureau Casualty Insurance Co. policyholder not only ensures that you can expect competitive rates, fast, fair claim service, and personal attention from our local agents—it signals your support for farmers and their families in your community.
A Farm Bureau membership puts you in good company. Today, the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation is the largest general farm organization in the state. We have over 180,000 member families in 82 counties.
There’s a bonus: Farm Bureau members can save hundreds of dollars with valuable discounts on vehicles, insurance, travel, farm equipment, and more with the potential to save you way more than the membership costs. Accessing your member discounts is as easy as downloading the Savings App.
A Proud Heritage
We are proud of our legacy of supporting our communities and families—because protecting, promoting, and securing our agricultural interests and the Mississippi economy strengthens us all. The “grassroots” make-up that defines Mississippi’s agricultural structure knows that it can rely on the strength of Mississippi Farm Bureau to ensure the future of locally grown foods and the family farms that provide them as well as supporting the largest Industry in the State.
By becoming a member of Farm Bureau, you join a growing community of families who support agriculture and our way of life in our Mississippi.
While each person who insures with Farm Bureau Insurance pays annual dues and receives all the member benefits—they do not have to be a farmer!
