Sales closing for wine grapes is January 31st. That is this coming Tuesday. For wine grapes in San Luis Obispo county there is still time to get your crops insured. Requirements for new vineyards are the grapes must be in their fourth leaf and have produced two tons of fruit. The USDA sets the price but you can use your contract to get a better price coverage. The crop average is set by using your own production history and if you do not have 4 years of production we can use a portion of the USDA posted county average.
This year the crop insurance companies wrote many checks for loss of production. We hope like you do that you have a big crop to sell next year, but if you don't we would like to make sure there is a check coming your way. Give Ted Hamm Insurance a call at 805-238-1818 to get the protection before the clock runs out.. Last call is January 31st.
