With firm roots in the agricultural community, Kings Mutual Insurance is helping to preserve farmlands

Berwick, NS – The Kings Mutual Insurance Company has been at the forefront of helping Nova Scotians and specifically the Agricultural community since 1904.  Offering competitive farm coverages at prices you can count on has been their niche since the beginning.  Sharing Kings Mutual Company profits with you by sending policyholders rebate cheques has been a consistent way of giving back to communities.  Kings Mutual Insurance has increased their commitment to agriculture by donating $50,000 to the Annapolis Valley Farmland Trust over a five year time frame.  These donations are to protect and preserve farmland in Nova Scotia.

Kings Mutual Insurance is excited to be partnering with the Annapolis Valley Farmland Trust.  Both organizations are focused on ensuring Agriculture remains a sustainable and viable option for Nova Scotians.  This industry is at the forefront of innovation as they understand what is needed to be competitive, to protect our environment and to provide the staples of our society.  Kings Mutual commends the Annapolis Valley Farmland Trust for believing in their vision of sharing options to preserve and conserve agricultural lands in this beautiful province.
