Insurance can be a costly necessity and everyone has different needs. Kentucky Farm Bureau Insurance understands and provides the individualized service necessary for today’s world.
The Bell County Kentucky Farm Bureau Agency was founded in 1952. Current agency manager Danny Luttrell joined in 1988, followed by agents Bob Dixon in 1996 and Joe Stamper in 2003.
Through several moves, the insurance agency settled in its current Middlesboro location in 1995.
Tough economic times are apparent, even in the insurance industry. Luttrell notices a decline in the economy by the increase in smaller claims being filed.
“In a more depressed economy area, sometimes people will turn in claims where they maybe wouldn’t have. Most insurance companies now have gone to higher deductibles to deter those smaller claims,” said Luttrell.
Luttrell attributes the continued success of Kentucky Farm Bureau in the area to his office staff and the family “We’re blessed to have longtime employees here that really know our people and have relationships with the customers. These ladies know people by name and it’s still a real small town feel,” said Luttrell.
Kentucky Farm Bureau continues to show its dedication to the local community through sponsorship of the Ray Reed Bell County Farm Bureau Scholarship which gives a $1,000 scholarship to a few deserving seniors at Middlesboro, Bell County and Pineville high schools every spring.
Kentucky Farm Bureau is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and can be reached at 606-248-7859. They are located at 923 N. 19th St. in Middlesboro.
