Riding a wave of profitability initiatives, favorable weather trends, and warm personal relationships with customers and business associates, Farm Bureau Insurance of Tennessee posted a second consecutive year of excellent results in 2014. 

Farm Bureau Insurance’s property and casualty operations saw solid gains and continues to cover more automobiles and properties in Tennessee than any other insurer. The life company maintained a consistent trend of outperforming the industry. Dividends to shareholders of both companies and increased stock valuations were announced at the Farm Bureau Insurance annual meeting in Franklin, Tenn.


In its third year as the statewide partner of the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, Farm Bureau Insurance of Tennessee surpassed the million-dollar fundraising mark. In 2014 company representatives made bigger and bolder strides than ever, contributing to a variety of fundraising efforts including bake sales, Making Strides walks and more than 32,000 pink Farmer Charlie hats sold.

The centerpiece of the 2014 campaign was 34 “Pink Out” high school football games hosted by Farm Bureau Insurance agencies across Tennessee. The games—played from the end of August through October—generated almost $300,000, uniting communities across the state to honor breast cancer survivors and educating people about the disease.

“To have raised more than $1,000,000 to benefit Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in only three years is truly unbelievable. This was made possible by the tireless efforts and generosity of Farm Bureau Insurance representatives. These proceeds will help the American Cancer Society seek better ways to prevent, detect and treat breast cancer, as well as provide help and hope to people facing this disease. I couldn’t be more proud of our company,” said Farm Bureau Insurance CEO Sonny Scoggins.
