Subject: non-renewal of insurance due to organic status

I just found out that State Farm insurance has decided to not renew our farm's insurance after twenty or so years due to our recent conversion to organic status.  Apparently, from what I understand, because any health issues etc. that _might_ be present in our products can be traced back to the farm, State Farm does not insure any organic farms.

Anyway, I checked a local "Independant" insurance agent in my hometown and found that I couldn't get insurance there either.

Does anyone know or have any suggestions as to where I can obtain reasonably priced insurance for an organic certified farm?
