"We don't know of any other product like ours that is available nationwide," says Kathy Schroeder, President of Sierra Specialty. "Our closest competitor only offers limited coverage in a few states."

This program will target a wide range of business classes, including pesticide & herbicide spraying services, farm­ consultants & managers, farm labor contractors, landscaping services for lawn and garden, tree trimming and pruning, and more. Available coverages include General Liability, Professional Liability, Excess Liability and Inland Marine, with limits up to $5 million. These can be packaged or written monoline.

"Our program has the ability to provide General or Professional Liability on all of these classes," says Mark Schroeder, Chief Operating Officer for Sierra Specialty and Manager of this program.
