At Lycetts, we offer landowners and farmers advice on issues including their farm estate and buildings insurance and issues related to increasingly diverse practices, as well as mainstream farming operations.

We provide first-class farm insurance in the UK and understand a high-quality client service requires a depth of knowledge and a true appreciation of industry issues. With more than 40 years’ experience in the field of farming and farm-related businesses and properties, Lycetts has well-established contacts with many of the UK’s leading farm insurers, allowing us access to a number of markets and enabling us to deliver comprehensive and wide-ranging levels of cover at competitive rates for your farm estate and farm buildings insurance.

Bespoke insurance for farmers can be arranged for all types of farm properties, including buildings, livestock, produce, deadstock, machinery, and office contents. We also provide guidance to ensure that the appropriate cover and sums insured are arranged in respect of buildings, with listing, planning and aesthetic considerations taken into account.

With two exclusive core policies underwritten by AXA and PEN Underwriting, we offer unique cover for the farming industry that can be tailored to suit the needs of contemporary and traditional farming operations.

How to claim farm insurance in the UK

In the event of a claim, please notify your Lycetts account executive or claims handler as soon as possible, and certainly of the incident. Some policies have strict time limits for notification of claims, so if there is a delay, you may prejudice your claim.

If the claim is for theft or malicious damage, please remember to report the incident to the police and obtain a crime reference number. On larger claims (in excess of £2,000), insurers may wish to appoint a loss adjuster, in which case your Lycetts team will provide advice on procedure. Regarding liability claims, it is essential that any potential farm insurance claims are notified to Lycetts immediately and all correspondence is promptly forwarded to your Lycetts contact.
