Missouri Hemp Co.
Our team has been working along side local Missouri farmers for the past 4 years in preparation for Missouri's new Hemp agricultural program. We are looking forward to helping our local farms adapt the Hemp crop into their farm rotations.
IMA, Inc. is headquartered in Denver, CO with large offices in Kansas City, Wichita and Dallas. We have been involved in the growth of the Hemp Industry since Colorado made it legal. IMA is a vertically focused brokerage that has an entire department dedicated to the Ag industry, which is appropriately where our Hemp niche is handled.
Our team has spent the last couple of years visiting clients and prospects across the country from seed, cultivation, harvest, storage, transportation, extraction all the way through retail sales. IMA takes a holistic approach with our risk control, contract review and claims services. We are thorough in our approach in that we learn the industry from start to finish so that we can educate carriers on both the hemp plant and hemp business. This is important when it comes to premiums because carriers add costs when it comes to unknowns.
IMA is one of the largest private insurance brokers in the country and is uniquely employee owned. Our employee-ownership structure allows us to keep both employees and clients for a long time. At the end of the day, we want what is best for the industry and what is best for our clients and are excited for the growth of Hemp in the state of Missouri and across the country.
