Within Minnesota there were 79,800 farms in 2011, according to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. Every few years many of these farms are sold or reconstructed.

A total of 184 farms are being recognized as Century Farms in Minnesota this year by the Minnesota State Fair and the Minnesota Farm Bureau.
