Insurance for Hobby Farms & Lifestyle Properties
As qualified professional insurance brokers, we can help protect your hobby farm or lifestyle property with a tailored insurance policy to meet your specific needs and requirements.
Why do I need to insure my Hobby Farm properly?
A hobby farm is usually a small farm operating for personal pleasure and isn’t run as a business or for profit. Hobby Farm Insurance is a specialist insurance policy covering the risks associated with running a small personal farm.
The types of insurance covers you may need for your hobby farm will depend on your activities and the types of products available in the market. If you run your farm as a business or for profit, you’ll need a different level of insurance protection compared to that of a hobby farm. See our Agriculture & Farm Insurance page for more information.
Why do you need to insure your Hobby Farm?
Even though a hobby farm doesn’t generate income, farming activities can be dangerous and costly if you don’t have the right level of insurance protection. Don’t rely on your home and contents insurance policy to cover your hobby farm as they’re not always covered under this type of policy. It would be a shame to find that out at claim time.
What types of insurance do I need for my Hobby Farm?
You can tailor your hobby farm cover to include the following
Home and Contents – Protect your domestic home and contents for loss, damage or theft
Farm Property – Protect your farm buildings like sheds, stables and workshops
Farm Motor – Similar to a motor vehicle insurance policy but also includes cover for risks associated with farming activities
Farm Machinery – Add cover for your farm machinery such as tractors, headers, quad bikes, ride on mowers and associated equipment used on a farm
Farm Liability – Protect your farm against public and product liability claims for property damage or personal injury as a result of your farm operations
Crop and Livestock – Covers your farm animals and produce for various situations such as accidental injury, theft and severe weather conditions
Plus More – There is a range of additional covers we can discuss with you.
