Farmowners Policy
As a farmer, you know how costly an unexpected event can be. N.C. Grange Mutual’s Farmowners policy provides the protection you need against many such unexpected events. The farmowners policy is a package policy providing coverage for your home, personal property, farm machinery, livestock, outbuildings, and liability. We offer several different levels of farmowner protection. Regardless of which farmowner insurance fits your specific needs, N.C. Grange Mutual products are among the best. We take pride in our high quality, competitively priced policies which provide the coverage you and your family need. The different plans available may not offer all the coverages shown below. Please see your local agent for help in determining your insurance needs and the plans and coverages available to you.

Plans Available:

  • FO3 – for the newer or substantially updated home situated on a farm
  • FO2 – for the well-maintained home situated on a farm regardless of age
  • FO8 – for the well-maintained home situated on a farm whose market value is substantially less than replacement value – usually older homes or homes with unusual features
