Brian Campbell has thought of himself as a farmer for as long as he can remember.
When he was just ten years old, Brian would ride down to the market with his dad and sell his one hundred ears of sweet corn right alongside all the other vendors. Today, all grown up, Brian has a farm of his own where he still grows sweet corn, in addition to broccoli, pumpkins, leaf lettuces, field corn and soybeans.
Risk is real
As a diversified crop farmer, Brian has an intimate understanding of the great risks that come with the job, from unpredictable weather to uncontrollable markets. That’s why he purchases whole farm revenue protection from Horizon Farm Credit. This type of crop insurance secures all the crops that Brian grows. Compared to other crop-specific insurance, whole farm revenue protection is an easier option for farmers like Brian who grow many commodities.
Farm Credit is there to help
However, purchasing and managing crop insurance can be confusing and Horizon has supported Brian throughout the process. “Having the right agent and the right company to deliver your insurance policy, someone who is knowledgeable on the product, is extremely important. My current insurance agent at Horizon has listened to me and has even gone to bat for me, fighting for what I felt was important when it comes to whole farm revenue protection,” Brian said.
Reflecting on his experience with Horizon, Brian said, “I feel that I have strong representation and a voice out there. It’s been a great experience and I’m looking forward to the years to come.”
