Welcome to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture's (MDA) Minnesota Farm Link service!
is a searchable tool to connect prospective farmers with retiring farmers. Farmers may post properties for sale or rent, on-farm opportunities, or even a profile of their farming experience.
We invite you to search the many listings on this page. Contact information is provided for each listing. We encourage direct contact with the seller, renter, or realtor posted on this website as they are solely responsible for the content of each listing. Thanks for your interest in Farm Link and please enjoy your search!
