Storm Walker-Vice President
On October 28th, 1878, a group of 6 area farmers: Wilhelm Wiechert, Jacob Mahrtens and Heinrich Tambke (from the Stover area); and Claus Gerken, John Grother, and Jake Brunjes (from the Cole Camp/Lake Creek area) formed the Farmers Mutual Fire and Lightning Association of Morgan & Benton & Adjoining Counties. They wanted to be able to insure themselves against fire and lightning because this service was not readily available to them in such a rural area at that time. After several name changes to reflect the counties of operation in 1953 and 1961, it was named Farmers Mutual Insurance Company of Cole Camp, Inc. in 1990 & the company now has the ability to write statewide.
The company is still the same in that it is operated & owned by its members & is dedicated to bringing excellent insurance service to its local policyholders!
The home office was originally located in Stover, MO but was moved to 206 W. Main St. in Cole Camp & opened on September 15th, 1986.
