Welcome to Hummel Insurance Services, an Oakland, Iowa-based insurance firm that has been serving the Southwest Iowa area for over a hundred years. Hummel Insurance Services specializes in Farm and agricultural insurance, but as an independent agency, we handle virtually all types of insurance, with many fine companies to choose from.


Our family-owned and -operated company has a rich history in Oakland dating back to the late 1800s. After spending time working for the agency’s original incarnation, D. Don Hummel enlisted in the Air Force where he piloted B-25s in the China Burma India Theater in World War II. Following his service, he returned home and bought into the agency — then owned by Tracy Rodwell — in 1945. The agency then became Rodwell-Hummel Insurance. Eventually, Don purchased the remaining interest in the company from Rodwell, and in 1972, Don Hummel Insurance, Inc. was incorporated with the state of Iowa. Don remained active in the agency until his death in 1993. Today, Hummel Insurance Services’ legacy is carried on by Don’s son, Craig Hummel.


Our commitment to personalized attention and extraordinary customer service creates an insurance experience that’s rare to find in today’s market. We are dedicated to helping you find a policy that suits your individual needs.


Hummel Insurance Services firmly believes in educating the client so that they can make informed decisions. As evidence of our dedication to informing consumers, the agency is a founding member of the National Society of Agents for Consumer Education. We are members of the Midwest Insurance Agency Alliance.

My family has been with Hummel Insurance for four generations. Grand father, father, myself, and my son. I appreciate the service, communication, and personal touch as policies are written, underwritten, and reviewed on a timely/regular basis. If I have a question I will get a response. Claims assistance has been excellent.

You are always looking out for better rates on insurance . You contact us with the information. A lot of places you have to ask them to find better rates. When we have had a claim it has been handled in a timely fashion. The office people are always so friendly and nice. They are always ready to answer any questions.
