MARLBOROUGH, MASSACHUSETTS – Jan. 5, 2022 – The Massachusetts Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement with A&B insurance, an independent insurance agency based in Westford, Massachusetts. This new partnership agreement will play a critical role as MFBF looks towards it future and expanding its membership.

“MFBF is much more than the insurance or discounts we offer,” said MFBF President Warren Shaw. “However, the single most important reason we’ve entered into this new agreement is that we believe it will provide our members with more and better options to help ensure the security of their family, home and business.”

Immediately, A&B Insurance will be offering MFBF members discounts on policies with CountryWay, which is affiliated with Virginia Farm Bureau Insurance. However, now that we have an agreement in place, several other companies have applied or will be applying to the Insurance Commission for permission to offer discounts. MFBF and A&B Insurance expect discounts with multiple insurance companies to be available to members in the spring.

“A&B Insurance Group is excited to have the opportunity to work with the Massachusetts Farm Bureau,” said John Oakes, A&B Insurance co-owner. “As an independent insurance agency, A & B represents multiple insurance companies. This allows us to provide insurance choices in meeting the Farm Bureau members insurance needs. Being an independent insurance agency means we work you, the member, not any on insurance company.”

This agreement went into effect on Jan. 1, 2022. MFBF encourages its members to visit for more information on A&B Insurance and to call them about how they might be able to best meet their insurance needs.
