Second place went to Sarawak's Esmelda Arecia Menti Alfred Geling, Linda Lin, Nur Amira Idayah Hayadi, Sufi As Sofiyah Kadir and Syahzani Izzati Wan Yusof who managed 182.750.
Malacca (Cheong Yan Ling, Deifrin Choo, Emily Tan, Tan Ing Yueh, Tracie Ang, Yap Chien Wen) settled for bronze on 179.550.
Selangor had on Sunday clinched the men's team artistic gold ahead of Penang and Pahang.
Despite her strong performance, which saw her emerge the top qualifier for individual all-around competition today with 51.65, Farah praised the Selangor team for their concerted effort in defending their title.
"We won the title by only a one point margin last year so stretch it to three points this time is a positive improvement for us," said the 19-year-old.
"I am very proud to have a strong team like this, not only the gymnasts, but also the team management and parents who have supported us.
"It was not easy to beat Sarawak as they have improved a lot since last year. They have a lot of quality and I am sure they will be a force in the future."
The victory sees Farah Ann, who is competing in her fifth Malaysia Games, take her personal haul in the competition to an impressive eight gold medals.
She, however, is hoping to make it nine through the individual all-around event today.
"My goal is always to go out and give it my best shot and hopefully do well. It would be nice to get a ninth gold medal here.
"However, anything can happen on the day and sometimes things do not work for you. It happens to even the top gymnasts in the world."
