Karla Otto (Caldicott) is our Senior Farm Insurance Specialist for South East Queensland. Raised on a cattle, grain and horticultural business on the Darling Downs, Karla brings 20 years of experience in agriculture, banking and insurance. Having worked across regional NSW and Queensland, Karla is passionate about agriculture, specifically intensive farming. Having the right amount of cover, in the right places and at the right times means we share the risks, so you can be confident of your farm’s resilience.
We were fortunate enough to have been introduced to Karla Caldicott who is Achmea’s Farm Insurance Specialist in Toowoomba. Karla visited our farm just over two years ago, she walked around our farm and asked questions to get a better understanding of what we needed to be covered for. Karla then went through the farm package with us and explained everything in detail.
We’ve been operating our dairy for 14 years now and we’ve been with the big insurers previously, but they were just getting too expensive. Although Achmea’s premium was cheaper for us it was much more than that, their focus on agricultural insurance as well as their understanding of dairy puts them in front of the rest.

Achmea understand farming and our specific insurance needs. Their team is attentive, knowledgeable, prompt and caring. We know we are in good hands with Achmea. It only takes one phone call for our Farm Insurance Specialist to sort out any issue, claim or policy addition or change. Our claim is being dealt with efficiently, without hassle. My experience with Achmea's customer service has been second to none. (Bromelton Free Range Poultry Pty Ltd, based in Beaudesert)
