The following information is provided by Nationwide, the No.1 farm insurer in the U.S.*

Nationwide is proud to support the Ohio Farm Bureau. Since 1926, Nationwide has provided insurance and financial services to Farm Bureau members and remains committed to helping farmers and ranchers protect what matters most.

As the exclusive property and casualty insurance company of Ohio and seven other state Farm Bureaus (California, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont), Nationwide has a rich history as a trusted resource for Farm Bureau members.

“We understand farming better than any other insurance company and offer more products and services in one place than our competitors,” said Brad Liggett, president of Nationwide Agribusiness. “But more importantly, we understand and appreciate Farm Bureau members since that’s where our company started. We stand with farmers and ranchers from across the country to assure their operations are properly protected.”

Over the last 90 years, Nationwide has grown from a small mutual auto insurer to one of the largest insurance and financial services companies. Additionally, Nationwide is the No.1  writer of farms and ranches in the United States* and offers farm insurance products that support all aspects of agriculture, from small acreage farms to large commercial agribusiness operations. Products and services cover the many sides of a farmer or rancher:

  • Farm, commercial and excess and surplus/specialty insurance products help protect the life work of farmers and ranchers.
  • Personal insurance products help individuals and families by protecting automobiles, homes, pets, sport vehicles, personal liability and more.
  • Financial services products help prepare for retirement through life insurance, annuities, retirement plans, mutual funds and a variety of other financial services.

Farm Bureau members are eligible for special savings on their Nationwide farm policy and may be eligible for other benefits, such as additional emergency roadside assistance coverage, identity fraud expense, arson/crime reporting awards and accidental death coverage for youth organization animals (4-H or FFA).

To learn more, talk with a local Nationwide agent or visit for more details.

Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Strong communities
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
