ATTRA publication that reviews federally subsidized crop insurance, with special attention to options available to specialty, diversified, and organic farmers.

Farming is a risky business, and federally subsidized crop insurance can help minimize that risk. However, crop insurance products are not always available for all the crops or livestock you might produce in your location. Also, adequate crop insurance for organic production—a kind of specialty in itself—while increasing in availability, is still limited to only certain crops and counties in the United States. However, before discussing what insurance options are available, it is useful to understand some basics about federal crop insurance.
