Madison, NY, June 14, 2017– Tanner Insurance Agency Inc is proud to announce and welcome Neil Collins as the new Farm Specialist.  Neil will be responsible for working with farms and ag businesses to identify risks to their business, and then partnering those farms and businesses with insurance carriers to protect their assets properly.

“I am thrilled to be a part of the Tanner Team.  I have been involved in Agriculture my entire life, from owning a dairy farm, and currently tapping approximately 2,500 maple trees to produce maple syrup. I look forward to continuing that tradition by providing exceptional service and advanced solutions to Tanner’s current and future farm clients.”

We represent ten different companies that can adequately insure your farm and its ever-changing needs. Each company has an area that they thrive in, so we can meet the needs of farms no matter the size of type. Our farm specialists know farms and their unique set of necessities because they are farmers themselves. We can even assist you with other relative lines of insurance including Workers Compensation, Umbrella liability policies, Commercial Auto, or any incidental business pursuits that you may have.

Keith Peavey, President states “We are very excited to welcome Neil to our team at Tanner.  Not only will he bring a tighter focus on farm owner customer relationship quality to our sales team, but also be an asset to all the farmers who come into contact with him”.
