Crop Insurance Is Vital to Michigan’s Agricultural Sector
“Even though crop insurance is our fourth largest annual expense, we continue to purchase it – that’s just how important it is to us. We have been fortunate not to have filed a claim in the past ten years. It’s comforting to know however that if we had needed it, we would have had the resources available to pay our bills, keep our employees on staff, and continue with this business.” – Hope Hills, Spicebush Creek Farms, Bangor, Michigan
