Our History

CHAPP, Inc., was formed in 1976 by the late Ed Crawford to assist citrus harvesters in securing workers’ compensation insurance for their businesses.  The company is still family owned by Mr. Crawford’s daughter and her husband.

Experiencing growth and development since its beginning as an agency solely writing workers’ compensation insurance in Florida, CHAPP, Inc., expanded to include a second agency, Citrus Insurance Services, Inc., in 1984. Currently, our agencies offer insurance coverages for virtually all aspects and services of the agriculture industry and are able to provide multi-state coverages for broader business needs.  During the decades CHAPP, Inc., has been in business, the agency has grown to be one of the largest insurance agencies exclusively writing agricultural coverage’s within the United States.

The vast majority of CHAPP, Inc., and Citrus Insurance Services coverage’s are written with the FCCI Insurance Group, a dedicated leader in agricultural insurance.  FCCI is A rated by the A.M. Best Rating Service, considered one of the most respected insurance rating systems in the world.
