Hobby Farm Insurance in Ontario

Hobby Farm Insurance in Ontario


When looking for hobby farm insurance it’s important to understand exactly what kind of insurance coverage you may require. If you own a large property – anything over 1 acre – and have livestock which are used for your own hobby or enjoyment, a simple home owner’s policy will likely not be adequate coverage for your situation.


What constitutes a Hobby Farm?


There are typically 3 items which must be reviewed to see if you require Hobby Farm Insurance.

  • Property Size –  Hobby farms generally range in size from 1 acre up to 100 acres – if you have over 100 acres, you likely need a Farm Insurance policy, rather than a hobby farm policy.
  • Farm Income – Any income generated from your hobby farm operations will need to be disclosed at the time of quoting to determine your eligibility. If this is a full-time farm operation and your main source of income, you will likely require a Farm Insurance policy which has broader coverages.
  • Livestock –typically hobby farm insurance will limit the amount of livestock to a maximum of 8 animals. Anything over that number and you may fall into Farm Insurance category.


You qualify as a Hobby Farm – now what?


Depending on your answers to the above questions, you may qualify for hobby farm insurance which will provide greater protection than what is typically provided on a standard homeowner’s policy. Your next step is to work with a licensed insurance broker to obtain the right advice and insurance coverages for your specific needs & situation. They will ask the right questions to ensure you get the right coverage.
