Paddy Compare is pleased to announce the launch of its Farm Insurance comparison service. According to teagasc, ‘The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) currently reports the agri-food sector in Ireland contributes a value of €24 billion to the national economy. It generates 6.3% of gross value added, almost 10% of Ireland’s exports and provides 7.7% of national employment.‘
There are over 100,000 farms, based in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Cavan and across Ireland (Central Statistics Office) and most of these farmers will have insurance to cover their vehicles, animals, staff, buildings and the farmhouse itself. Farm insurance can be a costly expense, and many farmers don’t even compare different companies when it comes to renewal.
