June is a perfect month for road trips! Make sure you are covered for all the insurance “what ifs” before you head out this summer. Call our office today for a quote!

We are a local agency in the small community of Wadena MN, but we can help you if you live anywhere in Minnesota and now in North Dakota as well. I grew up on a farm between the towns of Henning and Deer Creek. I have a friendly and dedicated team, and we work in a fun atmosphere. Since we are local, you can stop in when you have questions or need help with a claim. But we can do things over the phone and online too.

Our office is pet friendly, so don't be surprised if you see a well-behaved dog running around the office. Jolene tries to have one of her doodles at the office most mornings, so stop in and get in your "doggie fix."

I am a member of the Wadena Rotary Club. And, yes, we do actually sing at our meetings. I am also a volunteer for our local hospital, Astera Health.

Here at the Jolene Johannes State Farm Insurance office, we are proud to serve Wadena and surrounding Minnesota areas with Auto Insurance, Homeowner's Insurance, and Renter's Insurance. We can help you with Farm Insurance and Life Insurance. If you need ATV Insurance, Motorcycle Insurance, Business Insurance, we can help too.

Call if you are moving to Wadena or the surrounding Minnesota areas including New York Mills, Bertha, Verndale, Sebeka, Henning, Deer Creek, Sebeka, Menahga and Ottertail. We take our commitment to help you at claim time very seriously. We want to make sure we give you the proper insurance coverage for your specific needs.
