What is a smallholding?
Throughout England, Scotland and Wales there are thousands of smallholdings (we define these as farms below 100 acres). We have found over the years, that smallholdings can be ran as;
- A hobby farm
- A farm
- A lifestyle choice
- A small business
- For keeping rare-breeds
- For conservation purposes
- As grazing for horses/sheep Etc.
If you have a smallholding for other purposes please contact us so that we can review your situation with you.
Bespoke smallholders insurance
Tailor made insurance cover – aimed specifically at smallholders – is on offer from Farmers & Mercantile Insurance, with packages available from just £200 for 12 months of cover.
Finding insurance cover for this sector has been difficult in the past, but now, in conjunction with underwriters, a specialist package at a competitive price is available.
Clients are already giving valuable feedback on the policy, saying it’s the best available in the marketplace.
“A home section can also be added,” says Tim Harris, account executive with Farmers & Mercantile. “ We’re getting great feedback from clients who have already taken out this policy. We had seen a gap in the marketplace that we know our offer meets.”
The brokers focus on strong in-house teams who have high levels of expertise and have set up a specialist smallholding/telephone division to grow this side of the business.
Once again thank you for organising this insurance, I will make sure that I recommend you if any of my smallholding acquaintences need insurance.
