Featured Member of the Month – Farm Bureau Financial Services
The parent company, Mountain West Farm Bureau, is a multi-line insurance company, serving the needs of individuals, families, and businesses throughout Wyoming and Montana. Its mission is to provide financial peace of mind for their customers, with competitive, quality products and services.
The Sheridan business comes from the long-standing heritage of their parent company. Mountain West Farm Bureau began in 1946, when the Wyoming Farm Bureau organized an insurance committee to consider establishing an automobile casualty insurance service for Farm Bureau members.
In 1948, the Wyoming Insurance Department issued charters to the “Agricultural Insurance Company of Wyoming” and “Agricultural Indemnity Company of Wyoming,” and the two companies officially opened for business. The business made its first home in Laramie, with a small group of employees in a three-bedroom upstairs apartment processing 1,500 charter insurance policies.
Mountain West Farm Bureau has come a long way since that opening day. For over 60 years, they’ve provided communities in Montana and Wyoming with quality service. Through a partnership with Farm Bureau Financial Services (in Des Moines), the agents also help clients with their financial needs in life insurance, retirement planning, long-term care, disability insurance, estate planning, and business success planning.
Mountain West Farm Bureau is the largest domestic property and casualty insurance company in Wyoming, and the primary writer of agricultural properties in both Wyoming and Montana. It’s a mutual insurance company – an insurance company that has no shareholders but instead is owned entirely by its policyholders.
