About us

Our roots extend back to 1926, when we began as a small, regional mutual insurer helping farmers get the best value they could for auto insurance. Through the years, we’ve grown and expanded the solutions and services we provide to our customers while staying true to our On Your Side® promise: We exist to protect people, businesses and futures with extraordinary care.
