What do we cover?

What makes this policy different?

What if I fall outside the criteria?
The policy is designed to meet the vast majority of smallholding risks, however if you do fall outside of our policy limitations, then simply call us on 0345 6460170 and we can look at getting the right cover in place
Do you provide cover for Livestock?
Yes, up to a sum insured of £20,000, with theft and mysterious disappearance included as standard. You can also include fatal injury, both straying and on your own land
What are the territorial limits?
To be eligible for Smallholder Protect your smallholding must be situated within England, Wales, Scotland, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands
Do I need Employers’ Liability?
Employers’ Liability (EL) cover protects a business and its owners from any liability claims made by employees who have been injured at work, or suffered from a work related illness/disease. While most smallholders do not actually employ staff, it is still advisable to have EL cover in place for anyone (including friends and relatives) who help out on your land whether paid or not. To make sure you are covered we have included EL cover as standard across all levels of cover, and up to a £10m limit of indemnity
How would I make a claim?
