Our History

Grain Belt Insurance agency has roots dating back to the 1940s. Before current owner Corey Kostman bought it in 2013 and renamed it Grain Belt Insurance, the agency had only three prior owners. Growing since then, in 2015 Grain Belt Insurance purchased the property casualty assets of Bendena Insurance Agency in Bendena, KS, and in 2017 purchased the Wathena Insurance Agency in Wathena, KS.

Having grown up on a local farm himself, Corey has a particular heart for this area of the country. He chose the name Grain Belt Insurance to communicate that we serve the entire grain belt region of the United States. Our goal is to never leave you at the mercy of the insurance companies. We want to help you save money and protect your assets with the highest-quality insurance products available.

Through the years, Grain Belt Insurance has continued to care for its community and its clients. We’ve been there for the new homeowners with young families just starting out in need of home and auto insurance.
