The Ministry of State Farms (Russian: Министерство совхозов СССР) was a government ministry in the Soviet Union.

The People's Commissariat of Grain and Animal Husbandry State Farm USSR (Nukemat Sovkhozov SSSR) was separated from the People's Commissariat of Agriculture USSR on 1 October 1932, and established as an all-union people's commissariat. This commissariat was reorganized as a union-republic people's commissariat by the Stalin Constitution in 1936.[1]

On 15 March 1946, all people's commissariats became ministries, and the People‘s Commissariat of Grain and Animal Husbandry State Farm USSR became the Ministry of State Farms USSR, retaining its union-republic status.[1]

The People's Commissariat of Grain and Animal Husbandry State Farms USSR had jurisdiction over grain, dairy, meat, swine-raising, livestock-raising, sheep-raising, and reindeer-raising sovkhozes. This jurisdiction was exercised directly with regard to sovkhozes of union subordination and indirectly (through republic commissariats) with regard to sovkhozes of republic subordination.[1]
