About Us

We are Grinnell Mutual.
Since 1909, Grinnell Mutual has been a trusted source of quality insurance. We offer autofarm, and business to cover whatever you need to protect. Everything we do serves a single purpose — keeping our promise to take care of our customers, agents, mutuals, and employees, no matter what tomorrow may bring.

We have three underwriting companies with products that offer the coverage you need.


We live where you live.
Having neighbors you can rely on is invaluable. We are the largest reinsurer of county mutuals in the U.S., and we work with more than 1,700 local independent agents and brokers in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. And we know that where you live and work matters, which is why we give back to the communities you call home.

We are an industry leader.
Grinnell Mutual is the largest primary reinsurer of farm mutual companies in North America because integrity and trust are our core values. That’s good business. Since 1976, Grinnell Mutual has had a Financial Strength Rating (FSR) of A (Excellent) or higher by AM Best Company. We’re also one of 10 Iowa companies to earn a Top Workplace award every year since the honor was created in 2010. It’s a reflection of Grinnell Mutual’s commitment to our most valuable asset — our employees. We believe in our people
