The Lutz farm is a small acreage owned by the Lutz family. The farm consists of large grass- and heather fields that stretch to the German border. The farm has been in use for ages. The oldest part of the farmhouse dates back to the 1500s, although a large part of it has been destroyed by fire. Later, at the end of the 1600s, a part of the house was built using brick instead of clay. Many of the old features in and around the house and barns are kept in their original state, and the building is considered to be of high monumental value.
The main building consists of three parts. The barn, the oldest part of the premise, is made out of wood frames and clay. Next to it is the old house, which has been partly destroyed by fire. The old part of the house is also made out of wood and clay, but the new part of wood and brick. The latest piece of the farm is the current house, entirely made of brick and timber. All the buildings have thatched roofs decorated with Saxon gable signs. Around the building is a small orchard with fruit and nut trees and a small kitchen garden. Behind the fences are large fields. The farm used to grow grain, corn and mustard and kept a few cows and pigs. However, due to the decreasing quality of the soil (because of over-farming over the centuries), the farm has switched to only cattle.
The Lutz farm is the last farm before the German border and one of the last surviving farms in the area. On the German side, the lush fields are replaced by barren plains (Western Wüste), where only heather is able to grow. Because of the low quality of the soil, the Dutch government is planning to turn the plains into a production forest, threatening the last farmers in the area.
