Innovative solutions for your
Agriculture Insurance Needs

Learn More

Our roots as an insurance agency in the Central Valley go back to the late 1800’s where most of our time was spent protecting and insuring family farms and agribusiness.   As a founder of Giddings, Corby, Hynes and Lyng; Richard Lyng was a champion for the farming industry.  Our years of service to the farmers and ranchers we insured were well aligned with his passion for agriculture – and a great way to serve our rural community.  Later Richard was appointed Director of the California State of Agriculture; and then became the 22nd Secretary of Agriculture for the U.S.

Over the years, our way of doing business has changed with the times, but our commitment to the values and challenges of the agricultural lifestyle has not.  Capax – Giddings, Corby, & Hynes is proud to work with the local farmers, ranchers, and agribusinesses in one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world.

At Capax, our experienced staff works with Agribusinesses to tailor protection that is designed for the unique risk exposures associated with commercial agribusiness.  These risks encompass operations that are a step removed from the farm and as such require additional coverages not included in the typical farm insurance policy.  Our carrier partners have expertise in handling integrated operations throughout the agricultural industry.  Together we bring innovative risk management resources to modern agricultural operations.


Farm and ranch owners present different exposures than other businesses because of their unique lifestyle, with many farms also being the family’s home.  Capax has the knowledge and experience necessary to understand the needs of small family farms and large farming operations alike.

Food Processors

Our experience with the food processing industry includes meat processing plants, cheese manufacturers, seed merchants, and much more.  We work with carriers to offer enhanced coverages that address the unique risks associated with the manufacturing of food products.   The expertise that we have developed through training relative to the Global Food Safety Initiative is one reason to count on us for protection and sound advice when it comes to insuring food processing operations.


In addition to the standard coverage for bodily injury and property damage that occur on the farm premises or as a result of farm operations, fresh produce growers face many additional risks associated with food borne illness outbreaks.  Capax understands these unique exposures, and will work with you to tailor the proper coverage to protect you.  Product Liability, Product Recall, and Product Contamination are just a few of the coverages that are critical for proper protection.  Our team of experts can help you secure the coverage you need and collaborate with you to develop a comprehensive risk management plan.


At Capax, we believe in being there for you before you need us.  Our team of highly trained professionals has years of experience servicing the Dairy community in the Central Valley and throughout California.  We live and work in your community to develop strong personalized client relationships.  Feedback from dairy farmers and close relationships with our carriers allows us to tailor the proper coverage and avoid uncovered claims.
