Lincoln County Farm Bureau Insurance welcomes Eli Ferguson and Nathan Scott Bullock to Brookhaven as the branch’s two new agents.

Ricky Ferguson, agency manager, stated both of the young men have “hometown connections,” and he expects a lot out of them.

Ricky Ferguson further stated that he hires qualified and personable agents who are always ready to help a customer with any problem day or night.



“If an insurance agent is in the business for money alone, they won’t be successful, you have to have ‘the want’ to help others,” explained Ricky Ferguson.

Both Bullock and Eli Ferguson are residents of Lincoln County and have been on the job since April.

Bullock, former resident of Madison, said, “Primarily, I want to service the community and Farm Bureau clients while maintaining some personal success as an agent.”

Bullock was an employee previously at Northwestern Mutual as a financial aid adviser but remarked he was glad to join the Farm Bureau family because, in his personal opinion, Farm Bureau would be a better way to serve clients.

Brookhaven native Eli Ferguson remarked on Farm Bureau’s service-minded treatment toward their customers and said he is grateful to be a part of the business.

“I know how fortunate I am to have this opportunity and to grow in this business,” said Eli.

“I feel very fortunate to have both of them on our team,” said Ricky Ferguson.

Lincoln County Farm Bureau Insurance agency has been in business for more than 70 years and is located at 303 W. Cherokee St. in downtown Brookhaven.
