Farm Bureau Insurance

Farm Bureau Insurance of Michigan was founded in 1949 by Michigan farmers who wanted an insurance company that worked as hard as they did. Those values still guide the company today and are a big reason why they are known as Michigan’s Insurance Company, dedicated to protecting the farms, families, and businesses of this great state. Farm Bureau Insurance agents across Michigan provide a full range of insurance services—life, home, auto, farm, business, retirement, Lake Estate®, and more—protecting more than 565,000 Michigan policyholders.

Warm, sunny summers and cool fall nights and plenty of moisture from the Great Lakes create crisp, flavorful apples. No wonder Michigan is the place where apples love to grow!
