HofsuchtBauer (formerly hofgrü is a successful social enterprise in Germany that enables the inter-generational transfer of farms outside the family. HofsuchtBauer connects farm owners with young, well-trained people who want to build up an existence in agriculture. The online platform Hof sucht Bauer makes a first matchmaking possible.

In cooperation with Ashoka Impact Transfer and Hofer KG, HofsuchtBauer is starting its activities in Austria. The matching platform launched in September followed by a national media campaign. The online platform allows farmers to insert their farms and find successors outside their own family. Young people who are looking for an opportunity to become farmers are also featured on the website. In the coming months, HofsuchtBauer will build a dedicated service offering for farmers and soon-to-become farmers.
