Become a Farmers of Flemington Agent
In today’s marketplace there is a lot of noise about direct marketing and online sales. Some carriers want to go around the independent insurance agent and sell direct to the consumer. These companies may even end up competing against their own agency partners in certain lines of business! At Farmers of Flemington, we view our partnerships a little differently.
We believe independent agents offer our Policyholders the best overall value proposition: a combination of price, service, advocacy, and advice. That is why, we partner exclusively with local independent agents for distribution of our products. Our goal isn’t to make a profit at your expense, it’s to work together hand-in-hand to serve our mutual Policyholders and achieve profitable growth — together.
When it comes to support of the independent agency system, others talk the talk, but we walk the walk.
