There’s always something going on at the Litsche Hus

There is always something going on at the farm. We take great pleasure in organizing various activities and events for young and old.

For example, in the summer of 2015, we had a big farm festival with a Low German church service followed by a handicraft market, thoroughly enjoyed a musical-acrobatic fairy tale play, and laughed heartily with the Low German "complaint choir" De Meckerkring.

There are regular cultural events and concerts at the Litsche Hus - we'll keep you informed about our events and news.

Behind the dike

On August 6th, 2017, Ingrid Behnken presents some of her works at the Litsche Hus in Ober Ochtenhausen.

We would like to thank Insina Lüschen and De Meckerkring for an entertaining, interesting, and musically versatile performance!

Nora Buse, editor of the Bremervörder newspaper, was present at the Litsche Hus in Ober Ochtenhausen, and described the popular repertoire of the artists in her article.

It was a lot of fun for all spectators! Best wishes for continued success from Irma Behnken-Masthoff

We are pleased that the Litsche Hus has been received so well by our guests!

In October 2015, the Oste Holiday Farm was awarded the quality certificate "KinderFerienLand Niedersachsen" (Lower Saxony: A vacation paradise for children) by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Economic Affairs.

The Oste Holiday Farm was tested for 50 criteria from the categories service, safety, and facilities, and the results speak for themselves: Families with children are warmly welcome here and well cared for!

The Tourism Association of the County of Rotenburg (Wümme), in short TouROW, recently certified the Oste Holiday Farm in Ober Ochtenhausen regarding its friendliness toward children.

Irma Behnken-Masthoff is pleased with the "KinderFerienLand Niedersachsen" (Lower Saxony: A vacation paradise for children) award from the Lower Saxony Ministry of Economic Affairs, which has declared her holiday farm as particularly child-friendly and family-friendly.

Planting: New orchard with 20 fruit trees

As part of a family celebration, we planted over 20 fruit trees in our old orchard "Thees-Schlossers-Garten" and "Beekwisch". Another planting campaign is planned for autumn.

These young trees need a lot of maintenance (watering, protection against game damage, protection against mice, and so on) until they bear fruit in a few years. We are looking forward to the common harvest!

Lale and Eda Oetjen in magical action

In June 2015, a musical-acrobatic fairy tale evening took place. Margret Oetjen (formerly Lavenstedt - now Bielefeld) staged a fascinating fairy tale world with the help of her daughters Lale and Eda, as well as the violinist Piotr Miloslawski. Margret Oetjen has been appearing as a fairy tale actress for several years. Normally, she presents her program in High German; for the Litsche Hus, she performed it in Low German. The songs that she sang during her performance were also in Low German. With a clear voice and her own guitar accompaniment, she sang of love, grief and joy. The fairy tale world was brought alive in front of a fitting scenery.
