Texas Farm Bureau Insurance, a membership organization, was established in the mid-1970s in Palo Pinto County to serve its members with a full range of insurance products to protect their homes, autos, businesses and lives.
Texas Farm Bureau Insurance has grown to the extent that there are now five agents, two adjusters, two ISRs, a secretary and a receptionist to handle the volume of business in the Palo Pinto County Farm Bureau office.
Pat Bazzell, agency manager of the Mineral Wells office, is proud of the reputation this facility has earned for efficient, friendly service and the staff’s dedication to serving their customers. But their dedication doesn’t stop there. You see Texas Farm Bureau Insurance staff involved in the community and serving in many capacities throughout the county.
Familiar names, familiar faces. Pat Bazzell, Penni Beauregard, Pam Caudle, Linda Porter-Bradford and Eryn Reedy are all insurance agents who are ready to help you with any of your insurance needs. Whether you need insurance on a 500-acre ranch, a small cottage in the city limits or a life insurance program to protect your whole family, Texas Farm Bureau Insurance can customize a plan specifically for you.
After dedicating 30 years to Texas Farm Bureau Insurance, adjuster Dheryl Sherrill retired at the end of 2013. Marcie Jones and Stewart Wilde are now grabbing the reins to handle claims.
