Changes to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture website are coming soon.

Welcome to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture's Farm Link page. MDA offers a compilation of farm properties that are for sale, rent and/or are interested in giving opportunities to a beginning farmer by transitioning an existing farm with no current heir. This is by no means a complete list of all properties available in Minnesota, but it's to be used as a tool to start the process of finding the location or opportunity best suited for your needs.

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 MDA at 320-842-6910. Information given on this website is only as accurate as the information we have been provided. We encourage immediate contact with the seller, renter, or realtor if interested in any property. Enjoy your search!
