In 1946 John Tucker Harris, President of the Lee County Farm Association and respected farmer in Alabama, founded Alfa as the product of the Alabama Farmers Federation.

They offer coverages to over 1 million customers in 11 states: Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Texas, Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, Virginia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky, Florida, and North Carolina. It is still affiliated with Alabama Farmers. Alfa’s vision for the future is to focus on technology to enhance productivity and better serve customers. The company also plans to invest heavily in product and geographic expansion.
