George Harris

Crop Insurance Agent at Northwest Farm Credit Services
I was born and raised in Cottage Grove, OR, where I found my love of agriculture. Through Ag, I learned to work at an early age, picking strawberries and beans to raise money for school clothes and sports activities. Later, I worked with my father managing a small cow/calf operation, while attending Lane Community College. I then attended Oregon State University and after graduating with a BS in Agricultural Engineering and Animal Science, I went to work as an agricultural safety consultant, eventually expanding into property and casualty insurance as an independent insurance agent. When I was introduced to crop insurance in 1994, I immediately recognized the need and value of educated crop insurance professionals. In 2006 , I joined Northwest Farm Credit Services as a full time crop insurance professional. I now put my love agriculture and insurance experience to work for agricultural producers who need a knowledgeable agent to serve their crop insurance needs.
