Who We Are
Farmers Mutual Hail Insurance Company of Iowa (FMH) is one of the nation’s leading providers of crop insurance, serving America’s farmers since it was founded in the heartland in 1893.
FMH offers federal crop insurance to protect farmers against the financial risk of weather events, natural disasters, or market fluctuation. We also offer supplemental private products, such as protection against hail and wind, plus exclusive endorsements that provide additional price and yield protection.
In addition to our insurance products, FMH provides reinsurance products and solutions, assuming risk from other companies including farm mutuals and regional carriers throughout the U.S.
Ag Brokerage Solutions
FMH is among the first farm insurance companies to offer a wide range of ag-focused insurance products through its brokerage services, allowing agents to round out customers’ coverage with options like farm & ranch, personal lines, agribusiness, animal mortality, equine, transportation, and workers’ compensation.
Why Crop Insurance?
Farmers rely on crop insurance to see them through crop losses, market price fluctuations, and unforeseen disasters before, during, and after their crops are in the ground. In 2018, 1.1 million federal policies were sold protecting more than 130 different crops covering 335 million acres, with an insured value of $110 billion. *
Crop insurance is an important part of any farm operation’s financial management and agronomic decision-making. As technology continues to integrate farm systems, software, and data across these operations, crop insurance is another piece to the puzzle that can enhance the way farmers plan and work.
