The beautiful pumpkin time
Fall brings not only the cool, rainy days with it. Not for nothing we call the autumn "Golden Season". We like the warm, sunny days when the colorful leaves of the trees are sailing and we can enjoy the last rays of sunshine. And the many colorful pumpkins bring color into the autumn everyday life.
There are now over 800 pumpkin varieties - large, small, round, oval, yellow, orange or green. Such a variety and a huge selection of different pumpkin varieties has to offer a small farm in the beautiful Wendland. The pumpkin harvest starts at autumn with the Rutzen family. They get tons of pumpkins from their own fields, all hand-picked. The pumpkins are brought to the farm with the tractor, where they are cleaned and stored dry. At many small street stalls food and gourds can be grabbed. The pumpkins are popular, they look very decorative and just taste delicious. We visited family Rutzen, were amazed at the many pumpkins and shot exclusive photos for you.$config[ads_text] not found
