Celebrating National Farmer’s Day

Did you know that October 12 is National Farmer’s Day? Every year, National Farmer’s Day reminds us to stop and honor the hardworking farmers who keep this country running. Here in Oklahoma, agriculture is not just part of our past: farmers and their families play a huge role in our daily lives, from producing the food we eat to keeping Oklahomans employed. These are just a few of the reasons why we’re thanking Oklahoma farmers on National Farmer’s Day!

Farmers Build Community

First, farmers and ranchers are a core part of our communities in Oklahoma. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, more than 97% of farms are family-owned or family-operated. Our agents have gotten to know a lot of Oklahoma’s farmers over the years, from helping set up new policies to being there when life throws you unexpected challenges, for example. We’re your neighbors, so whether it’s a 3 a.m. phone call after severe weather strikes or keeping the cattle ranch afloat after a family illness, our agents are by farmers’ side through it all. 

Farmers Help Our Economy

Oklahoma has a rich history of farmers and ranchers that continues on today! Did you know 78% of Oklahoma’s land is used for farming and ranching? It goes to show just how much agriculture is the backbone of Oklahoma’s economy! These businesses not only account for tens of millions of dollars in agricultural production, but also represent more than 400 agritourism venues and over 321,000 jobs for Oklahomans. The tireless work of farmers and ranchers does not go unnoticed. Our agents are always here to help you protect the investments you’ve made in your business, with policies specifically tailored to cover farmers’ and ranchers’ commercial ventures and assets.
