COUNTRY Financial® was formed by a group of Illinois farmers in 1925 as a fire and lightning insurance company. A year later, the company expanded and began to offer coverage for autos and equipment. Today, we have more than 5,000 employees and representatives working together to provide a full range of products and services to meet your insurance and financial needs. We take care of all insurance needs and wants. Life, home, auto, farm and commercial. We are local agents who support local small businesses, as we are a local small business. Our goal is to educate and insure the community, so they can sleep well at night.
