We have a statewide network of adjusters to handle your loss quickly and fairly, even in the event of an area-wide catastrophic loss.
We are a Montana mutual. Fergus Farm Mutual is regulated by the Montana insurance commissioner’s office. Because we are a mutual, you have a vote in our company. We are financially sound. We know our insureds and their risks.
Fergus Farm Mutual History
In 1908 the existing insurance companies would not insure rural property. A group of farmers and ranchers in Fergus County pooled their money together and paid each others losses as they occurred. Thus was Farmers Mutual Fire and Lightning Insurance Association of Fergus County born.
Our name has since been shortened to Fergus Farm Mutual. We have evolved into a state-wide insurance company that can handle any of your property and casualty needs. We have licensed Montana agents to write your policy and a network of licensed Montana adjusters to handle your loss should you have one. We are reinsured by companies that must be approved by the state and we belong to both a state and a national mutual insurance association. We’ve been writing insurance for 100 years and plan on being here for at least another 100 years.
