« Hofgründer » offers advice and information on farm succession and business start-up in agriculture throughout Germany. The motivation for the work of hofgründer.de is the dramatic situation that only one-third of all agricultural holdings have secured the farm succession. At the same time there are many young trained farmers without farm who would like to venture into practical agriculture. The goal of hofgründer.de is to accompany domestic and non-family farm handovers and thus to enable the preservation of many agricultural businesses.
