We know Farm & Ranch

Like the back of our hand

Our Story

At James Allen Insurance, we understand the challenges that come with the territory of selling policies. Some of us have even owned our own agencies and are still licensed to this day. So we get it, and we get your customers.

We’re well seasoned in farm and ranch policies and know it like the back of our hand. We aren’t like the big insurance guys that take weeks to move and charge big premiums when things get risky. We can move on a dime and pivot at every turn when our customers ask. And we’ve been known to cover the policies that seem bound with red tape and impossible to cut. Our team was the very first company to write the Avian flu policy, so we know the hoops that you have to jump through to get your customers covered when things get challenging. But we do it… and we do it well. Bring us a problem, and we’ll find a way to cover it.
