Luxenhaus Farm isn't actually a working farm, but there will be a lot going on there this weekend.

"We just decided that it was the lifestyle that was worth preserving," said Bob Hostkoettter, farm owner.

Hostkoetter took close to 50 acres of inherited farmland and turned it into almost 90 acres of living history.

"A date means nothing if you don't know why people lived as they did at that period of time," explained Hostkoetter.

363 days a year it's quiet on the Marthasville farm, but for one weekend the farm is filled with visitors. Opening Luxenhaus Farm to guests two days a year has been the routine since 1982.

"You're trying to show how people in the early 1800's and even before with the Osage Indians, how they actually lived."

Deutsch Country Days at Luxenhaus Farm is Saturday and Sunday from 9am-5pm. The farm is located on State Highway O in Marthasville.

It costs $18 dollars for adults. There are discounted tickets for children and seniors. For more information call 636-433-5669 or head to www.deutschcountrydays.org.
