  • Risk Management
  • Loss Control
  • Compliance Assistance
  • Human Resources

We Do the Shopping for You

CNI Agribusiness Solutions has more flexibility than agencies for big name ag insurance companies, like Allstate, Farmers, AAA, or State Farm. They sell just one brand. As an independent agency, we work with numerous underwriting insurance companies, all with A ratings with A.M. Best Rating Service. The end result, you don’t have to do the shopping — we do that for you.

Claims Assistance

Inevitably, incidents will occur. Our carriers have 24/7 claims assistance. Plus Carl Nelson Insurance has a dedicated in-house claims department to answer your questions and to help you resolve any issues with the least amount of worry. It also saves you and your staff precious time!

Personal Assistance When You Need It

If you have any questions, your ag insurance specialist will know you and be responsive to you personally. The rest of the CNI staff will back up your specialist, always ready to serve you when you need it.

Locally Owned and Operated

Carl Nelson Insurance is based in Hanford, California. We set our own policies on how to best serve you. We don’t have to answer to “corporate” as do the name brand insurance agencies. Plus it’s easy for you to drop by and talk to us one-on-one.

25+ Employees. Well-Trained!

We are large enough that someone is always available to help you. Yet, we’re small enough to give you personal service.

Phones Are Answered by a Human Being

During office hours, our phone is answered by someone eager to serve you — not a call center.

Since 1977

Our longevity and history demonstrate our strength and stability. We’ll tell you simply, plainly, and honestly what we recommend for your ag insurance needs.

Insuring Californians

Although we primarily serve the ag insurance needs of businesses in Hanford, Visalia, Tulare, Fresno, Lemoore, Bakersfield, Kingsburg, and Selma, we can insure you no matter where you are in California. We can bind and issue coverage via fax, email, or even with an electronic signature.

A+ Better Business Bureau Rating

We are pleased to have achieved an A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau. The BBB standards for businesses are high and embody the principles of trust, integrity, and honesty.
