Farm Bureau Financial Services was founded in 1939 as a property and casualty insurance company specifically for farmers and to meet their unique needs. They are currently headquartered in West Des Moines, Iowa. Currently, the company only offers their property and casualty (including automobile insurance policies) to a limited geographical region. Some customers have reported difficulty getting information from independent agents, but this varies widely, and does not appear to be a universal condition for the company.

The Mendota Insurance provider is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kingsway Financial Services, Inc. Kingsway Financial Services is one of the fastest growing property and casualty insurers in all of North America.
