This is the second year we've attended Deutsch Country Days. We had even more fun than last year...and last year was amazing. This year we knew to head over to the Boy Scouts food area first to get a plate of biscuits and gravy before they ran out. The food is great. Everything is perfectly planned. I hope I'm able...

We decided to attend this event at the last minute. Glad we did. This is on private property, once a year in October. This has been held for the past 35 years! The vendors are talented, enjoy their craft and are knowledgable. The Boy Scouts were running the food stand, and did an awesome job. We noticed how mature and... More

This is one of the premier events in this part of the country. They have lots of old log cabins and other structures, with demonstrations of lots of old skills. It changes from year to year, but examples this year included a steam powered sawmill, a horse powered sorghum press, rope making, soap making, candle making, a fellow splitting cedar... More

Most of the other visitors we met were from central and eastern Missouri and they seemed surprised that we were from an adjacent state instead. But given the quality of this even the surprise is that there weren't many more people from out of state. The specific focus of this single October weekend event is the deep Germany heritage of...

Deutsch Country Days let's you revisit life at a slower pace, when men and women still worked with their hands. Fresh-squeezed apple cider, hot or cold, a working sorghum press, a steam-driven sawmill, hand-woven linens, and the list goes on. Don't miss a beautiful fall day in the hills of Missouri at this walk in the past.

First let me congratulate the organizers of this event. They thought of everything! I wish I knew of Deutsch Country Days when the kids were young. Too bad it only happens on the weekend...it would be an amazing school field trip. The Boy Scouts did a great job of feeding the crowd. Be sure to wear the proper footwear. You'll... More

We've been going for years and it's always fun. This year there was home made ice cream. I paired it with the home made root beer and had the BEST root beer float EVER!! I got the goat's milk lotion, which is awesome - very rich and moisturizing. I also got some hand carved spatulas this time (I usually get... More

Nothing compares to this fabulous event held each fall in Mid Missouri. Our family has attended for years and we also enjoy volunteering at Deutsch Country Days at Luxenhaus Farm and meeting people who visit from surrounding states. Enjoy 100+ vendors and exhibits held in a setting so memorable. Mark your calendars and visit the web site at www.deutschcountrydays.org. The... More

After 50 years of attending these types of events--scouting, pioneer crafts, frontier skills, etc.--I am TOTALLY impressed that there is still more for me to learn and see. This venue is a great deal for the funds required. The family who owns this farm has brought vintage German buildings from the Missouri River Valley area and relocated them at the... More

This living history weekend is one of the best I have attended. There are so many craftsmen showing German skills from the past. You can take your time and watch the craftsmen at work. They answer questions and you can try your hand at some crafts. Great food is available also. There are many old cabins and out buildings to... More
