Farm insurance is a hybrid. It’s designed to blend the business needs of a revenue producing operation with the personal activities of the farm family. No two farms are exactly alike, so a one-size-fits-all,cookie cutter approach doesn’t work.

We’ve been insuring farms for over 80 years. In the 1930s, Harry Hess helped organize and manage the local mutual insurance companies that were crucial to Lancaster County agriculture. Since then, our farming friends and neighbors have come to trust us for insurance for their homes, equipment and livestock. The Hess Agency is still a family-owned company serving the descendants of those original families.

Dairy, poultry, crop or farmette, vegetables, fruit or livestock, we have the approach that’s right for you. Our farm carriers include: Goodville Mutual, Westfield, Lititz Mutual, Tuscarora Wayne, Reamstown Mutual and Erie. With so many companies to choose from, we can customize your coverage and place it with the carrier that is best suited to your operations.

We give our best at all times. We treat our clients, employees, and suppliers with respect.
We guard and conserve our clients' resources as we guard our own. We live up to our commitments.
