    Do you cover yourself with an LLC...which by the way we have done. LLC covers you to an extent that a person can not sue you for everything you have for having become sick from your eggs or sick birds being sold. I am not a lawyer, but have been a small business owner and wife to a small business owner. There are many options. Legal zoom or sites like it can do this.

    What I am considering is whether this falls under a homeowner policy and if you have farm insurance who was a good carrier for you? I do not wish to drum up negative replies. Only positive suggestions.

    For instance, my animal behavior business had Hartford. It was the most "trainer" friendly option of companies. Now I know there has to be farm insurance somewhere. Any input?

    Thank you in advance.

    I cover myself with an LLC subsidy (spelling, it's combined with another family business)
    Still looking for a farm insurance, all I have is a home insurance.

    Hmm is this something I should consider? My birds won't bring in more than $100 a month, would it be worth it?

    Get farm insurance with liability. The Farm Bureau offers a good policy.

    Mutual of Enumclaw used to offer farm insurance, don't know if they still do, but they always had a reason why they didn't have to pay a claim. I very much would never recommend them.
