Ohio Farm Bureau and Nationwide Insurance
Ohio Farm Bureau's approved insurance and financial service provider
Nationwide is proud to be the exclusive insurance provider of Ohio Farm Bureau. Since 1926, Nationwide has been providing insurance and financial services to Farm Bureau members and remains committed to protecting what matters most. As a company with a deep agricultural history, Nationwide offers active members of Ohio Farm Bureau a discount on farm insurance. Nationwide also offers a variety of insurance and financial services to Farm Bureau members.
Common Heritage, Long-standing Partnership
The Ohio Farm Bureau Federation was organized in 1919 as a membership organization of farmers and rural residents dedicated to improving their community and strengthening their chosen farming vocation. Instrumental in beginning the cooperative movement in Ohio and addressing rural electrification needs, Ohio Farm Bureau and member volunteers were creative and ambitious in approach, and successful in their endeavors.
One of their early business ventures was launched as a mutual insurance company in 1926 to best meet member needs, specifically inappropriately high auto insurance premiums for its rural members. The first policies were sold by volunteers who visited neighbors to enroll them with a promise of good service at a fair price. The Farm Bureau Mutual Automobile Insurance Company quickly gained a reputation for delivering excellent customer value. In 1955, the Farm Bureau insurance company formally separated from Ohio Farm Bureau and changed its name to Nationwide.
‘When we upsized to a home with facilities for livestock, we were relieved when Nationwide again provided the best coverage options amongst the several companies we compared.’ ~ Bo Harstine.Read More
