Our Story

Putting Members First Since 1874

Farmers Mutual Insurance Association was organized on March 2, 1874.  We have been providing insurance services to the people of Mitchell County and the surrounding counties in Northern Iowa ever since.  We originally started out insuring only against the perils of fire and lightning.  As the needs of our clients has changed, so have we.  We have since expanded our perils insured against to keep pace with the changing patterns of living and doing business. 

On January 1, 2006 Saint Ansgar Mutual Insurance Association merged with Farmers Mutual Insurance Association to form one mutual.  Saint Ansgar Mutual Insurance Association started out as German Farmers Mutual Insurance Association of Mitchell County.  It was organized at the St John’s Lutheran Church in the Rock Creek area in December of 1881.  In 1953, the name was changed to Saint Ansgar Mutual Insurance Association and they began offering wind insurance.

Today we strive to offer our clients the best possible protection for all of their home and farm insurance needs.  If you are looking for a local company that does everything in its power to ensure your satisfaction, contact one of our local agents today.  Our local agents will help you get the right coverage to protect you in your time of need.
