Your local Achmea Risk Specialist is committed to keeping you farming. We don’t sell insurance through brokers, instead you have direct access to your dedicated local Risk Specialist. Located throughout rural Australia, they live and breathe farming. Your Risk Specialist will go the extra mile to walk the farm with you. Because the first step in helping you protect your farm is getting to know it. Whether you are in poultry, dairy, livestock, cropping, horticulture or glasshouses, our Risk Specialists are backed by 200 years of international farm insurance expertise.
Equipped with a unique understanding of local farming conditions, your local Achmea Risk Specialist will walk your farm as part of our on-farm review of your insurance.
Together with you, we’ll review all your buildings, sheds and machinery, including contents and inventory. This can help identify hazards and losses before they occur, keeping your repair bills and premiums down.
We combine our expertise with your knowledge of the farm, to give you a fair quote. After all, no one understands your farm and business better than you do.
Let Achmea walk the farm with you and discover farm insurance – the way it should be done.
