We discovered shortly after starting our ranch, that our homeowners insurance would NOT cover any liabilities involving our llamas. For instance if a quest were to fall and get injured, we were not covered because we are a ranch and not a residence. We needed a ranch or farm policy. Someone told us about Global Insurance Alliance, Inc.  We called and spoke with Melissa Braun.  She was easy to work with and we now have full coverage for the ranch.  We recommend contacting her for any of your questions regarding farm or ranch insurance.
