In 1972 Charlie Farris started the Farris Insurance Agency in a single wide trailer. In the 44 years since, this family business has grown into a 3,700 square foot office which helps to service thousands of customers in 15 states. Charlie's three sons (Kevin, Rick and Tim) manage the agency and serve as licensed agents. These three brothers, along with four other agents -- Mike (Charlie's grandson), Tasha, Lori and Melissa -- continue to grow the agency into a local powerhouse which services Personal, Commercial, and specialty accounts of all sizes.
