TrueNorth's Agribusiness team provides an innovative approach to one of the world's most traditional industries by focusing on risk strategy, claims mitigation and loss control.

The agriculture industry is an evolving landscape and comes with complex challenges.

Our specialized and experienced team provides risk solutions that will protect and maximize your assets, resources, and opportunities.

The insurance solutions that worked in the past haven't evolved to keep up with the demands of your changing industry.

As the agriculture industry evolves, new challenges arise with property, transportation, liability and worker's compensation risks. TrueNorth is a privately held risk management and brokerage firm that is positioned ​for succession - not for sale. We understand the challenges you face as your operation grows and co-ops begin to merge, leaving fewer operations standing.

With our enterprise risk management expertise, we help to ensure that your total cost of risk is accounted for.

Our team has over 50 years of industry experience that can provide:

  • Dedicated safety & loss control expertise
  • Holistic risk management services
  • Client-centric approach to service
  • Alternative risk financing solutions
  • A passionate and dedicated team of experts you can trust

TrueNorth has been outstanding in working with Cooperative Farmers Elevator (CFE) during our transition. Lane and team work hard to understand our business, our risk and how to effectively cover our needs. They advocate with our insurance companies on CFE's behalf and bring feedback to our team on areas of potential improvement or development.


Step1 - Discover
In the discovery phase, we assemble a cross-functional leadership team to assess current needs and envision your firm’s future. We analyze risk exposure, define values, measure culture indicators and evaluate financial models to assess how The Enterprise Navigator can impact your bottom line.
Step2 - Plan
During the planning phase, we develop a strategy to promote culture, ensure compliance, manage risk and create financial savings.
Step3 - Implement
To implement the agreed-upon strategic plan, we apply a combination of risk transfer solutions, process improvement consulting and employee education. To achieve maximum results, we engage your team throughout the implementation phase.
Step4 - Manage
Annually, we connect to proactively measure, assess and refine our plan for progress to continuously improve our efforts. We solicit feedback, reflect on program status, measure financial impact and adjust where necessary.
