American Farmers & Ranchers started out as a company that not only wrote their own policies, but they acted as their own insurance adjustors and made the repairs on homes, farms, and equipment when a claim was made as well. As they grew, however, this practice became impossible to maintain, but by then the company had the money to pay for adjustors and repairs.
Currently, American Farmers & Ranchers sells insurance throughout Oklahoma. In 2005, the company acquired Twin Falls Mutual, an insurance company in Idaho that allows them to sell products in Idaho as well. These are the only two states that this company is licensed to sell products in.
American Farmers & Ranchers does not have an AM Best presence, nor do they have any financial or credit ratings with any of the other ranking authorities.
American Farmers & Ranchers Agents
American Farmers utilizes both independent agents and in-house agents. Some of the agents that work directly for the company are the great-great-grandchildren of the original agents for the company.

To find an independent agent, you simply visit the find an agent link on the American Farmers website. At this point, you will be provided with a list of counties to from which to choose. If your county is not listed, then there are no agents in that county.
