Amitti Johnston


Amitti was born and raised in Lewiston, ID and graduated from the University of Idaho in 2012. She began working for Haight Crop Insurance in 2014 while earning her Master's degree in Public Administration from Eastern Washington University. Within a year, she became a full-time agent with the company. Amitti and Gretchen met through their work at a summer camp for type-1 diabetic children, and since both women are diabetics themselves, there is always a steady supply of juice and granola bars at the office!

Gretchen Strasser


Gretchen is a graduate of Eastern Washington University and began working for Janet at Haight Crop Insurance in 2004. After nearly ten years in the business, she purchased the company from her mother in 2013 and is now the President and Owner of Haight Crop Insurance. Gretchen handles not only the day-to-day paperwork that crop insurance entails, but also takes great pride in building and maintaining personal relationships with our clients.

Janet Haight


Janet was raised on a corn, soybean, and cattle farm in central Illinois where her family still lives.  After spending her first 18 years in crop insurance training underwriters and administering various crop insurance programs in the Northwest, she established Haight Crop Insurance in 1993. After selling the business to her daughter, Janet now spends her time as a consultant for the company and vacationing to Palm Springs, CA in the winters.

Mick Rice


Mick grew up on a corn, alfalfa, cattle, and hog farm in Nebraska and joined Haight Crop Insurance in 2007.  He worked for the USDA for 32 years, including almost 30 years with the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation, where he was involved in program development, administration, oversight, marketing, and claims.  Mick's primary focus with our agency is on helping growers in Western Oregon and Washington, particularly with Whole Farm Revenue Protection.
