Welcome to the Joel Shaw State Farm Agency! Since 1988, I have been proudly serving as a State Farm Agent, driven by my genuine passion for helping others. Growing up in a State Farm family, I was inspired by my father to make a difference in the lives of families in our local community. Over the past 30 years, I have dedicated myself to assisting our valued Good Neighbors in managing their risks. It is an honor to cater to the insurance needs of Bourbon County, as well as the surrounding areas of Paris, Carlisle, Cynthiana, Lexington, and Winchester.

Our team in Paris, Kentucky shares the same enthusiasm for providing education and guidance to our customers regarding the range of services we offer. We are committed to helping individuals and families find insurance policies that will suit their unique needs. Whether it's Auto, Homeowners, Renters, Farm, or Small Business Insurance, we are here to assist. Additionally, we are well-equipped to provide support with Life and Health Insurance. Contact our office today for a complimentary quote.

I take great pride in the achievements of my agency. We have been recognized with several esteemed Qualifier awards, including the Legion of Honor, Honor Agent, Crystal Excellence, and President's Club. As a lifelong resident of Paris, my wife and I are thrilled to raise our two wonderful children in the warm embrace of Bourbon County.
