When Do I Need Insurance for My Hobby Farm?

Standard homeowner's policies do not cover hobby farms, so if anything were to happen to your farm, you would be out of luck financially. A standard homeowner's policy often covers only commercial and agricultural uses. 

Liability insurance is essential: Your hobby farm will certainly have a lot of public contacts, both curious onlookers and paying customers. That's why getting liability insurance is important if somebody gets hurt or gets sick on your hobby farm and sues you.

Money lost: Losing revenue from your hobby farm after a catastrophe may be difficult, even if it isn't your primary source of support. Loss of income coverage is common with hobby farm insurance and may be added if not.

The ability to tailor one's coverage is crucial: The hobby farm you and your neighbour create may seem quite different. Because of this, it's important to look for a policy that can be modified to fit your home's requirements.

An impartial insurance agent may provide a laundry list of additional arguments for insuring your hobby farm.
