What is Smallholding Insurance?

Whether you have a smallholding with a few animals, or a more complex agricultural business, you need to take onboard specialist advice so you can establish which is the right smallholding insurance policy for you.

This type of insurance provides cover for the range of risks that a smallholding may face. The definitions of what constitutes a smallholding can vary, but generally a smallholding is defined as a plot of agricultural land that is larger than 5 acres but smaller than 50 acres.

Howden’s smallholding insurance policies, courtesy of the specialist farm insurers we work with, can be adapted to suit you and your smallholding - but what do they generally cover you for?

  • Property & Equipment cover
  • Livestock insurance
  • Agricultural Vehicle and Tractor insurance
  • Farm Contents and Agricultural Building insurance
  • Employer’s liability
  • Landowners’ liability
  • Public and Product liability
  • Environmental liability

Because we tailor our policies to each customer, this list is not exhaustive, and we are happy to discuss any further cover you may require for your smallholding. With decades of experience providing bespoke farm insurance solutions for smallholders and landowners, we are committed to finding the best possible insurance solutions we can for our clients, whilst reducing your costs wherever possible.
