Farm 24: A word from the sponsor

As the leading insurer of farm businesses from smallholdings and family farms to large estates and diversified enterprises, we’re at the heart of farming and are proud to be supporting this year’s 24 Hours in Farming.

Twitter Facebook

We’ve been insuring farms through good times and bad for more than 100 years. Today, with farmers facing intense challenges from low prices and increasing competition, we know the importance of getting clear messages to the public which demonstrate the fantastic work being done, round the clock, to deliver first-class food to the nation’s tables.


While we’re always protecting farms from the risks of a dangerous world, we also help farmers plan for the long-term future of their businesses. Just as today we work with the farming families who have insured with us for generations, we’re determined that in the future our strong support will mean we will be working with the children and grandchildren of today’s farmers in a sustainable and profitable agricultural sector.


Social media provides a great tool to spread the message about the work farmers do day in, day out, and we’ll be supporting this year’s event through our own social media channels. Our local agents and support staff in more than 300 branches across the UK will also be taking part in 24 Hours in Farming and we can’t wait to see how your work is driving UK agriculture forward.
