Four years after the foundation of Federated Farmers in 1899, some of its leading members were instrumental in establishing the Mutual Fire Insurance Act. Just two years later, through their efforts to seek fair insurance products and services that met farmers’ needs, the first Mutual Fire Insurance Associations were formed – the birth of Farmers’ Mutual Group
FMG has grown to become the country’s number one rural insurer, and today our business remains focused on understanding farmers’ needs and meeting the challenge of total support for them in an ever-changing environment. Federated Farmers continues as New Zealand’s leading rural sector organisation, giving farmers a collective voice nationally and within each province.
FMG offers Federated Farmers members a different approach to insurance. Today our business is all about understanding your needs, then providing the advice and protection you need to manage your on-farm risks and get the results you want from your business. Our Rural Managers work with you on-farm to identify and assess your risks, then provide information, contingency plans and a comprehensive insurance recommendation based on what you identify as being most important.
Federated Farmers members also have the opportunity to pay their FMG company premiums via CRT, Farmlands or ATS and receive a 2.0% rebate* - before GST and levies are added.
To find out how to do this call us on 0800 366 466.
In addition, FMG supports the Provincial Federated Farmers with a yearly payment based on membership numbers as well as being a National level Gold Sponsor and supporter of Federated Farmers initiatives such as the National Farm Day.
