” I found years later I was the first Professional Liability Errors&Omissions client of The Crop Shop. I have known, or known of, Steve Nicklaus for over 40 years. I trust him, and when he said he had a good policy designed just for my exposures developed with input from Pioneer I bought it. I had carried a general errors and omission policy before. The Crop Shop policy has many more coverages with less exclusions, specifically designed for my exposures and at a significantly lesser premium than I paid before. Even my then insurance agent said it was better than he could offer.

I would suggest your talking with Shelly or Steve. “
