Relationship between Country Financial and Edgar County Farm Bureau


In 1925, Illinois Farm Bureau farmers recognized farmers’ need for fire insurance for farm buildings. As a result, Illinois Farm Bureau formed COUNTRY Financial® to provide Illinois farmers with fire insurance. In 1927, COUNTRY Financial® added auto insurance followed by life insurance in 1929. Today, the companies of COUNTRY Financial® offer a wide range of personal and business insurance options to consumers, as well as retirement, education, and investment products.
