80 Years Serving America

We began our journey in 1928, when two men who shared a dream of providing a quality insurance product at a reasonable price opened the doors to the Farmers Automobile Inter-Insurance Exchange in Los Angeles. In the eighty years that followed, we've grown and adapted to meet the changing needs of Americans - but one constant has remained. We have an unwavering commitment to upholding the ideals with which we began by providing industry-leading products and services to the customers we're privileged to serve.

Today, Farmers Insurance Group of Companies is the country's third-largest insurer of both private Personal Lines passenger automobile and homeowners insurance, and also provides a wide range of other insurance and financial services products. Farmers operates primarily in 41 states across the country through the efforts of approximately 20,000 employees. Farmers exclusive and independent agents, along with Farmers employees, are responsible for servicing more than 15 million customers.

Our vision

Farmers will drive innovation and operational excellence to provide the best value and experience for every customer we are privileged to serve.

Our story

For more than eight decades, Farmers has been helping Americans get back where they belong after life's unexpected events. Our story began with the simple goal of insuring the vehicles of rural farmers, but as the world changed, so did we. Enjoy a photo tour of Farmers through history video.

Our communities

Our co-founder John C. Tyler once said, “The measure of our worth is not what we have done for ourselves, but what we have done for others.” Farmers agents, district managers and employees make up what we call the Farmers Family, and as a family we’re proud to give back to our communities.
