Hobby Farm Insurance
Insurance for your Hobby Farm or Lifestyle Property
With the professional advice and experience of your SUREWiSE insurance expert, we’ll 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?
Even though a hobby farm doesn’t generate income, farming activities can be dangerous and could be costly for you if you don’t have the right 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.
What is a Hobby Farm?
A hobby farm is generally a small farm which operates 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.
What if my farm is a business?
If your farm is run as a business or for profit, you will require a different level of insurance protection compared to that of a hobby farm. Please refer to our Agriculture & Farm Insurance page for further information or contact us to discuss further.
What type of insurance do I need for my Hobby Farm?
The types of insurance covers you may require for your hobby farm will depend depending on your activities and the products available from insurers. An example of some of the types of insurance covers you may consider could include:
Home and Contents
Protect your domestic home and contents for loss, damage or theft.
Similar to a motor vehicle insurance policy but also includes cover for risks associated with farming activities.
Covers farm machinery such as tractors, headers, quad bikes, ride on mowers and associated equipment used on a farm.
Covers your farm buildings such as sheds, stables and workshop.
Covers your legal exposures associated with farming operations.
Crop & Livestock
Covers your farm animals and produce for a wide variety of situations such as accidental injury, theft and severe weather conditions.
