At Nationwide, we value people, we’re member-focused, we act with honesty and integrity and we trust and respect each other. But our core values are just one of the many reasons our members trust us to protect their most important business assets.

Our history

Nationwide’s agricultural history dates back to 1909 when a group of determined Iowa farmers and grain elevator owners joined together to create an insurance company that would provide an alternative source of dependable, affordable insurance to protect against their losses.

While staying close to our roots, we’ve spread our agribusiness operations across the country. We now operate in 48 states. We’ve also grown our product offerings to keep pace with the evolving agribusiness industry.

Today, we’re the #1 farm insurer in the U.S. and a leader in insurance and risk management solutions for commercial agribusinesses along the food, fiber and fuel chains.

While agriculture and its related businesses have radically changed over the past century, our commitment hasn’t. We remain dedicated to the business and the people who are American agriculture. And we pledge to continue our tradition of service, safety and integrity. Just as we did more than 100 years ago.
