Agriliance Advantage


Founded in 2018 by partners JC Carroll and Ben Tillman, Agriliance is a full-service Crop Insurance Agency rooted in Risk Management. With over 30 years of combined crop insurance experience, we are the experts in providing peace of mind during the growing season.  Agriliance’s unique approach allows our agents to advise growers on the best available risk management plan as it pertains to each farm and operation.  It is our belief that to make an informed decision about risk management, you must be able to understand and unite all segments of a farms’ financials.  Armed with the contacts and resources that only years of dedication to the Agricultural Industry can provide, we believe our team is the best suited to make recommendations for your operation.  Agriliance’s nationwide success is a result of our consultative approach which allows us to put ourselves in the grower’s shoes.  Our continued commitment is to the American farm – which in our opinion is not only a lifestyle, but an ideal worth preserving.

A company is only as good as its team members

We believe Agriliance has the best team in the business!

"JC Carroll, a partner of Agriliance, has lived by the above words his entire life. It has kept him on the right path and guided him to take action towards the goals that he has set out to achieve. JC Carroll and Ben Tillman soon realized that they both shared the same commitment to their families, friends, clients, and now team members. Together they decided that the Agriliance team had to grow with like minded individuals that share a passion for agriculture and a desire to positively impact farmers lives during trying times. Our team at Agriliance is committed to waking up every day and doing our best for the farmer’s we have the privilege to work for."
