Welcome to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture Farm Link service. Farm Link is a list of Minnesota farm properties that are for sale, rent and/or farmers who are interested in providing opportunities to a beginning farmer by transitioning an existing farm with no current heir. This is not a complete list of all properties available in Minnesota, but it is an online tool to assist prospective farmers with farm properties or opportunities to farm.

Contact information is provided for each property that is for sale or rent. To ensure privacy, any interest in either "Young/beginning farmers seeking to transition into a farm" or "Existing Farmers seeking to transition to the next generation" other than what is available to view is done by contacting the MDA at 320-842-6910. Information posted on this website is only as accurate as the information we have been provided by the parties involved. We encourage direct contact with the seller, renter, or realtor. Enjoy your search!
