If you are shopping for a farm, you probably already know that Minnesota farm land is among the richest in the world. Whether you’re looking for a hobby farm or a working farm for dairy, poultry, produce, an orchard, vineyard or a ranch, you can find all the active MN farms for sale listed on the Minnesota MLS.
When you are searching for the perfect piece of property, start by entering what your preferences are. For example, how much acreage should your purchase have for your needs? Also consider what type of home you want there and other structures you would want on your land. Would your plot need acres of pastureland for grazing or several open spaces for poultry barns or other large structures? All of these key features will help you find your the best piece of property for your needs.

With the growing demand for corn in this country and abroad, farmland is also increasing in value. No longer are the days of rotating corn and soy beans, many farmers treat the soil so they can plant corn every year. Even large “corporate farmers” are looking for additional farmland here. As the use of ethanol increases, so will the value of farm-able land in here. The number of farms that are for sale will likely decrease until a balance is reached with the fuel economy.
But what that also means to the average farm is that its value will increase steadily, especially if it is already prepared to yield corn crops. And most MN farms have at least some flexibility on their yield. Remember also, when you are ready to make an offer on your farmland what equipment you request as part of the sale. If you have a good Realtor, they will know exactly how to include that in the offer.
