Whole-farm revenue insurance available

New farm revenue insurance that covers multiple crops and livestock is now available for 2015.

Whole-farm revenue protection allows producers to insure between 50 to 85 percent of their whole farm revenue, and allows growers to insure a variety of crops at once instead of one commodity at a time. That gives them the option of embracing more crop diversity and helps support the production of a wider variety of foods.

The 2014 Farm Bill allowed USDA’s Risk Management Agency to create the whole-farm crop insurance policy.

Whole-farm revenue protection is tailored for any farm with up to $8.5 million in insured revenue, including farms with specialty or organic commodities (both crops and livestock), or those marketing to local, regional, farm-identity preserved, specialty, or direct markets.

More information, including availability of the product, can be found on RMA’s whole farm web page,

Federal crop insurance is sold and delivered solely through private insurance agents. A list of insurance agents is available from the RMA regional office in Topeka, or on the RMA agent web page.
