Receiving a 5-star review on Google and having someone refer a friend or family member is the ultimate compliment for us. Many new customers have found us through a Google search, and we take pride in providing exceptional customer service and care. We also have a combined over 40 years of current customer service and care. Before reaching out to us, consider what matters most to you when it comes to insurance. Take a look at our online reviews and ask yourself if your current insurance agency measures up. If not, we invite you to visit our office or give us a call to experience how we can earn your confidence and business.

We understand that having a unique Family Protection Plan that aligns with your family's goals is crucial. Life can bring unexpected changes, and medical expenses can quickly deplete savings. However, with supplemental medical coverage, you can focus on your recovery and family while State Farm takes care of the rest. If you're expecting a baby or preparing for a new family member, consider purchasing a life insurance policy to ensure their future is secure, even if something happens to you.

We also specialize in helping friends living in wildfire areas find California Fair Plan policies. As wildfire season is always changing, we understand that living in an area where most providers won't write a homeowner's policy can be daunting. However, the CA Fair Plan is a great option to consider.

At Barney Storms State Farm Insurance, we take pride in offering our community Family Protection Plans that cater to their unique needs. We believe that insurance should be easy to understand, and our bi-lingual staff is here to help. As a local home-grown agent, we represent Kern County's heritage and values. Our agency offers a range of insurance products, from auto and RV to life insurance and hospital GAP policies. We also offer a complimentary asset review to ensure your coverages meet your risk tolerance.

As a proud alumni of Bakersfield High, Bakersfield College, and Summit Bible College, I understand the value of community and giving back. I am honored to be your champion and agent for a rainy day and everything in-between.

Here are some community events that we have been a part of this year as well as upcoming:

Cara Clarke State Farm Agent Team Member

Cara Clarke

Account Representative

Hello Good Neighbors! I’m Cara Clarke and I am the newest licensed State Farm team member here at the Barney Storms State Farm team. It’s important to me that our office keeps a happy and stress-free atmosphere which is displayed through our demeanor when working to insure all of our customers. I live locally to the Bakersfield, 93309 zip code and am very involved with many organizations in California. I pride myself in providing great Auto Insurance, Homeowners Insurance, Renters, Property/ Casualty Insurance, and Business Insurance. I love building lasting relationships with the Bakersfield community, by not only providing excellent insurance options, but by also volunteering with many local Bakersfield organizations. I am involved with the Children’s Miracle Network, NOR Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce, the Hispanic Chamber, and the Downtown Business Association. It’s my business to insure all of my family, friends, and partners in the 661 that you all have cost-effective options when bundling for your home or auto insurance. Whether you’re relocating to California, or you’ve been within 30 miles of us this whole time, feel free to give me a call so we can discuss your insurance options going forward.

I am very hardworking so it may seem like I'm only in the insurance office helping each and every customer, but actually, some of my hobbies include cooking, gardening, hiking, and spending time with my family. My favorite part about being a State Farm licensed rep is that I can provide your family with the same protection and coverage that I provide to mine. This includes your furry family too. Me personally...I have 4 cats named Donnie, Daryl, Fletcher, and Stich and 1 husky/shepherd mix named Mishka. When you call to ask how we can help you with your home and auto policies, don’t forget to ask about our pet insurance. Come visit me at the Barney Storm State Farm office located at the corner of Montclair Street and Stockdale Highway today!

Judy Baird State Farm Agent Team Member

Judy Baird

Customer Service Representative

Hello friends, family and Bakersfield residents! My name is Judy Baird and I started my State Farm career working for agent Roger Hess for 20 years. When Roger retired this year, I was elated when Barney Storms asked me to join his State Farm Team. I am a licensed State Farm representative with my licenses in Auto, Home, Business, Life, renters, Property/Casualty insurance. I love being local and grew up going to school in East Bakersfield even attending college at Bakersfield JR college. It’s the perfect place for any family to get started. My parents raised 5 girls with me being 4th in line and my son now has 4 boys with his beautiful wife in the Bay area. If family is as important to you as it is to me, then ask about our Life Insurance policies so they can better be protected during these trying times.

I worked at Kern Schools FCU now known as Valley Strong for 6 years in finance. Then, moved to Kern Federal CU and now Strata Credit Union for 25 years of loan and insurance experience combined. It is at the credit union I first got my insurance license eventually joining the State Farm family.

I love music and dancing as did my parents. The whole family took dance lessons from John Debonaire ballroom. I was a majorette starting in first grade. I loved marching in parades. At Bakersfield college, I was in the Banner Line for a year. I enjoy live concerts, country western and 60’s music.

I am involved with The Cancer Foundation where I am happy to volunteer. My passion for their foundation came from the loss of my two sisters to cancer, and my friend of 60 years. I support Children Hospital in LA and here in Bakersfield as my son was a 28 week 2lb preemie and we stayed at Children hospital in LA for almost 3 months. The Ronald McDonald House is close to my heart also.
