Custom Harvest Insurance, Ltd. was formed January 1, 2006. This new agency was formed by combining the Custom Harvest program books of business of three separate producers and agencies: Larry Minner of Western Insurance Agency, Inc; Mike Esau of Insurance Professional Associates; and Ed Peck of Anderson Peck Agency.
This new agency is owned by Larry Minner and Mike Esau and represents more than 60 years of working with Custom Harvest Insurance. Both Mike and Larry began writing program business Custom Harvest Insurance in 1983 with USF&G. They have both been active advocates of the Custom Harvest Industry for more than 25 years. During this extended time period various companies and program forms have been used to provide the best possible insurance coverage of the clients involved in Custom Harvesting.
The merger forming Custom Harvest Insurance, Ltd. was accomplished to better serve the Custom Harvesting client base. The focus of the agency is solely Custom Harvest Insurance. The principals of the agency are dedicated to continuing to improve the insurance products available to Custom Harvesters. Today the agency operates strictly as a specialist in Custom Harvest Insurance, selling this product in both a retail and wholesale setting.

Additonally the agency maintains memberships with several associations committed to advancing the custom farming and harvesting industry including U.S. Custom Harvesters, Inc; the Association of Canadian Custom Harvesters, Inc; Florida Citrus Mutual; The Southeastern Cotton Ginners Association and The Southern Cotton Ginners Association.
