State Farm began with the idea that people with less risk deserved less expensive insurance policies. In the 1920s, this wasn't a very popular idea.
State Farm founder George J. Mecherle decided to try the idea anyway. Since farmers were less likely to be involved in accidents that people living in cities, State Farm offered farmers lower rates on insurance. Before long, Mecherle's idea of pricing based on risk spread to other insurance carriers.
Today, State Farm is among the top 20 companies in the Fortune 500. It has over 79,000 employees, almost 17,000 agents, and more than 71,000,000 policies in effect. State Farm is one of the largest carriers of auto, homeowners, and life insurance.
