    J7M4+RP Oakham, UK

    J7M4+RP Oakham, UK

    Open 16th – 31st October

    Back for our second year – twice the size and double the fun!

    In May 2020, James and Peta launched Rutland Pumpkins – planting 8,000 pumpkin seeds on a field adjacent to James’ sister Abigail’s business, Live Lab, which provides grain, feedstuff and soil analysis for farmers across the country. We were delighted with how many people came to see us and cannot wait to see you all again this year!

    Before planting our first pumpkins seeds in 2020, as a pumpkin patch novice Peta sought the advice of pumpkin patch veterans Rob and Jen, of Yorkshire Pumpkins. Just in the nick of time too, the pumpkin seeds were about to be drilled in the ground and Rob informed us that a maize drill would definitely not do for planting pumpkins! As you know, maize grows upwards, therefore the seeds can be planted quite close together – not so for pumpkins – which need ample room to spread their vines and tendrils! This was timely advice and we were able to work with local contractors to buy the requisite plates and drill the pumpkin seeds with enough room to grow.

    Fast-forward to 2021 and we are excited to welcome you all back to the pumpkin patch, we’ve doubled the size this year, and we have spotted all of our pumpkin varieties growing on the patch. We’ve got miniature Jill be Little’s, small white Casperitas, knobbly and warty Knucklehead pumpkins, and your traditional carving varieties like Wicked and Early King. The Early King can reach up to 12 kilograms in weight, so they really do require a wheelbarrow to be carted around – we’ll also have lots more wheelbarrows available to borrow this year!

    We’re welcoming back Roaming Giraffe events this year, who will be serving up delicious cakes, as well as their divine loaded hot chocolates – perfect for a chilly autumn outing! This year, for the first time, we’ll be joined by Amo La Pizza, who will make sure you don’t go hungry – we’ll have undercover seating too. We’ll also be joined by Shona’s Fabulous Faces, who will be on hand to make sure your little ones (and big ones!) look spooktacular! We cannot wait to see you all at the patch in October !

    Fast-forward to 2021 and we are excited to welcome you all back to the pumpkin patch, we’ve doubled the size this year, and we have spotted all of our pumpkin varieties growing on the patch. We’ve got miniature Jill be Little’s, small white Casperitas, knobbly and warty Knucklehead pumpkins, and your traditional carving varieties like Wicked and Early King. The Early King can reach up to 12 kilograms in weight, so they really do require a wheelbarrow to be carted around – we’ll also have lots more wheelbarrows available to borrow this year!

    We’re welcoming back Roaming Giraffe events this year, who will be serving up delicious cakes, as well as their divine loaded hot chocolates – perfect for a chilly autumn outing! This year, for the first time, we’ll be joined by Amo La Pizza, who will make sure you don’t go hungry – we’ll have undercover seating too. We’ll also be joined by Shona’s Fabulous Faces, who will be on hand to make sure your little ones (and big ones!) look spooktacular! We cannot wait to see you all at the patch in October !

    In May 2020, James and Peta launched Rutland Pumpkins – planting 8,000 pumpkin seeds on a field adjacent to James’ sister Abigail’s business, Live Lab, which provides grain, feedstuff and soil analysis for farmers across the country. We were delighted with how many people came to see us and cannot wait to see you all again this year!

    Before planting our first pumpkins seeds in 2020, as a pumpkin patch novice Peta sought the advice of pumpkin patch veterans Rob and Jen, of Yorkshire Pumpkins. Just in the nick of time too, the pumpkin seeds were about to be drilled in the ground and Rob informed us that a maize drill would definitely not do for planting pumpkins! As you know, maize grows upwards, therefore the seeds can be planted quite close together – not so for pumpkins – which need ample room to spread their vines and tendrils!

    In May 2020, James and Peta launched Rutland Pumpkins – planting 8,000 pumpkin seeds on a field adjacent to James’ sister Abigail’s business, Live Lab, which provides grain, feedstuff and soil analysis for farmers across the country. We were delighted with how many people came to see us and cannot wait to see you all again this year!

    Before planting our first pumpkins seeds in 2020, as a pumpkin patch novice Peta sought the advice of pumpkin patch veterans Rob and Jen, of Yorkshire Pumpkins. Just in the nick of time too, the pumpkin seeds were about to be drilled in the ground and Rob informed us that a maize drill would definitely not do for planting pumpkins! As you know, maize grows upwards, therefore the seeds can be planted quite close together – not so for pumpkins – which need ample room to spread their vines and tendrils! This was timely advice and we were able to work with local contractors to buy the requisite plates and drill the pumpkin seeds with enough room to grow.

    Fast-forward to 2021 and we are excited to welcome you all back to the pumpkin patch, we’ve doubled the size this year, and we have spotted all of our pumpkin varieties growing on the patch. We’ve got miniature Jill be Little’s, small white Casperitas, knobbly and warty Knucklehead pumpkins, and your traditional carving varieties like Wicked and Early King. The Early King can reach up to 12 kilograms in weight, so they really do require a wheelbarrow to be carted around – we’ll also have lots more wheelbarrows available to borrow this year!

    We’re welcoming back Roaming Giraffe events this year, who will be serving up delicious cakes, as well as their divine loaded hot chocolates – perfect for a chilly autumn outing!

    J7M4+RP Oakham, UK

    J7M4+RP Oakham, UK

    Open 16th – 31st October

    Back for our second year – twice the size and double the fun!

    In May 2020, James and Peta launched Rutland Pumpkins – planting 8,000 pumpkin seeds on a field adjacent to James’ sister Abigail’s business, Live Lab, which provides grain, feedstuff and soil analysis for farmers across the country. We were delighted with how many people came to see us and cannot wait to see you all again this year!

    Before planting our first pumpkins seeds in 2020, as a pumpkin patch novice Peta sought the advice of pumpkin patch veterans Rob and Jen, of Yorkshire Pumpkins. Just in the nick of time too, the pumpkin seeds were about to be drilled in the ground and Rob informed us that a maize drill would definitely not do for planting pumpkins! As you know, maize grows upwards, therefore the seeds can be planted quite close together – not so for pumpkins – which need ample room to spread their vines and tendrils! This was timely advice and we were able to work with local contractors to buy the requisite plates and drill the pumpkin seeds with enough room to grow.

    Fast-forward to 2021 and we are excited to welcome you all back to the pumpkin patch, we’ve doubled the size this year, and we have spotted all of our pumpkin varieties growing on the patch. We’ve got miniature Jill be Little’s, small white Casperitas, knobbly and warty Knucklehead pumpkins, and your traditional carving varieties like Wicked and Early King. The Early King can reach up to 12 kilograms in weight, so they really do require a wheelbarrow to be carted around – we’ll also have lots more wheelbarrows available to borrow this year!

    We’re welcoming back Roaming Giraffe events this year, who will be serving up delicious cakes, as well as their divine loaded hot chocolates – perfect for a chilly autumn outing! This year, for the first time, we’ll be joined by Amo La Pizza, who will make sure you don’t go hungry – we’ll have undercover seating too. We’ll also be joined by Shona’s Fabulous Faces, who will be on hand to make sure your little ones (and big ones!) look spooktacular! We cannot wait to see you all at the patch in October !

    J7M4+RP Oakham, UK

    Open 16th – 31st October

    Back for our second year – twice the size and double the fun!

    In May 2020, James and Peta launched Rutland Pumpkins – planting 8,000 pumpkin seeds on a field adjacent to James’ sister Abigail’s business, Live Lab, which provides grain, feedstuff and soil analysis for farmers across the country. We were delighted with how many people came to see us and cannot wait to see you all again this year!

    Before planting our first pumpkins seeds in 2020, as a pumpkin patch novice Peta sought the advice of pumpkin patch veterans Rob and Jen, of Yorkshire Pumpkins. Just in the nick of time too, the pumpkin seeds were about to be drilled in the ground and Rob informed us that a maize drill would definitely not do for planting pumpkins! As you know, maize grows upwards, therefore the seeds can be planted quite close together – not so for pumpkins – which need ample room to spread their vines and tendrils! This was timely advice and we were able to work with local contractors to buy the requisite plates and drill the pumpkin seeds with enough room to grow.

    Fast-forward to 2021 and we are excited to welcome you all back to the pumpkin patch, we’ve doubled the size this year, and we have spotted all of our pumpkin varieties growing on the patch. We’ve got miniature Jill be Little’s, small white Casperitas, knobbly and warty Knucklehead pumpkins, and your traditional carving varieties like Wicked and Early King. The Early King can reach up to 12 kilograms in weight, so they really do require a wheelbarrow to be carted around – we’ll also have lots more wheelbarrows available to borrow this year!

    We’re welcoming back Roaming Giraffe events this year, who will be serving up delicious cakes, as well as their divine loaded hot chocolates – perfect for a chilly autumn outing! This year, for the first time, we’ll be joined by Amo La Pizza, who will make sure you don’t go hungry – we’ll have undercover seating too. We’ll also be joined by Shona’s Fabulous Faces, who will be on hand to make sure your little ones (and big ones!) look spooktacular! We cannot wait to see you all at the patch in October !

    J7M4+RP Oakham, UK

    J7M4+RP Oakham, UK

    Open 16th – 31st October

    Back for our second year – twice the size and double the fun!

    In May 2020, James and Peta launched Rutland Pumpkins – planting 8,000 pumpkin seeds on a field adjacent to James’ sister Abigail’s business, Live Lab, which provides grain, feedstuff and soil analysis for farmers across the country. We were delighted with how many people came to see us and cannot wait to see you all again this year!

    Before planting our first pumpkins seeds in 2020, as a pumpkin patch novice Peta sought the advice of pumpkin patch veterans Rob and Jen, of Yorkshire Pumpkins. Just in the nick of time too, the pumpkin seeds were about to be drilled in the ground and Rob informed us that a maize drill would definitely not do for planting pumpkins! As you know, maize grows upwards, therefore the seeds can be planted quite close together – not so for pumpkins – which need ample room to spread their vines and tendrils! This was timely advice and we were able to work with local contractors to buy the requisite plates and drill the pumpkin seeds with enough room to grow.

    Fast-forward to 2021 and we are excited to welcome you all back to the pumpkin patch, we’ve doubled the size this year, and we have spotted all of our pumpkin varieties growing on the patch. We’ve got miniature Jill be Little’s, small white Casperitas, knobbly and warty Knucklehead pumpkins, and your traditional carving varieties like Wicked and Early King. The Early King can reach up to 12 kilograms in weight, so they really do require a wheelbarrow to be carted around – we’ll also have lots more wheelbarrows available to borrow this year!

    We’re welcoming back Roaming Giraffe events this year, who will be serving up delicious cakes, as well as their divine loaded hot chocolates – perfect for a chilly autumn outing! This year, for the first time, we’ll be joined by Amo La Pizza, who will make sure you don’t go hungry – we’ll have undercover seating too. We’ll also be joined by Shona’s Fabulous Faces, who will be on hand to make sure your little ones (and big ones!) look spooktacular! We cannot wait to see you all at the patch in October !

      J7M4+RP Oakham, UK
      J7M4+RP Oakham, UK

      Open 16th – 31st October

      Back for our second year – twice the size and double the fun!

      In May 2020, James and Peta launched Rutland Pumpkins – planting 8,000 pumpkin seeds on a field adjacent to James’ sister Abigail’s business, Live Lab, which provides grain, feedstuff and soil analysis for farmers across the country. We were delighted with how many people came to see us and cannot wait to see you all again this year!

      Before planting our first pumpkins seeds in 2020, as a pumpkin patch novice Peta sought the advice of pumpkin patch veterans Rob and Jen, of Yorkshire Pumpkins. Just in the nick of time too, the pumpkin seeds were about to be drilled in the ground and Rob informed us that a maize drill would definitely not do for planting pumpkins! As you know, maize grows upwards, therefore the seeds can be planted quite close together – not so for pumpkins – which need ample room to spread their vines and tendrils! This was timely advice and we were able to work with local contractors to buy the requisite plates and drill the pumpkin seeds with enough room to grow.

      Fast-forward to 2021 and we are excited to welcome you all back to the pumpkin patch, we’ve doubled the size this year, and we have spotted all of our pumpkin varieties growing on the patch. We’ve got miniature Jill be Little’s, small white Casperitas, knobbly and warty Knucklehead pumpkins, and your traditional carving varieties like Wicked and Early King. The Early King can reach up to 12 kilograms in weight, so they really do require a wheelbarrow to be carted around – we’ll also have lots more wheelbarrows available to borrow this year!

      We’re welcoming back Roaming Giraffe events this year, who will be serving up delicious cakes, as well as their divine loaded hot chocolates – perfect for a chilly autumn outing! This year, for the first time, we’ll be joined by Amo La Pizza, who will make sure you don’t go hungry – we’ll have undercover seating too. We’ll also be joined by Shona’s Fabulous Faces, who will be on hand to make sure your little ones (and big ones!) look spooktacular! We cannot wait to see you all at the patch in October !

  • Raddlemans Pumpkin Patch – Rutland
    All day
    29/10/2021-31/10/2021

    J7M4+RP Oakham, UK

    J7M4+RP Oakham, UK

    Open 16th – 31st October

    Back for our second year – twice the size and double the fun!

    In May 2020, James and Peta launched Rutland Pumpkins – planting 8,000 pumpkin seeds on a field adjacent to James’ sister Abigail’s business, Live Lab, which provides grain, feedstuff and soil analysis for farmers across the country. We were delighted with how many people came to see us and cannot wait to see you all again this year!

    Before planting our first pumpkins seeds in 2020, as a pumpkin patch novice Peta sought the advice of pumpkin patch veterans Rob and Jen, of Yorkshire Pumpkins. Just in the nick of time too, the pumpkin seeds were about to be drilled in the ground and Rob informed us that a maize drill would definitely not do for planting pumpkins! As you know, maize grows upwards, therefore the seeds can be planted quite close together – not so for pumpkins – which need ample room to spread their vines and tendrils! This was timely advice and we were able to work with local contractors to buy the requisite plates and drill the pumpkin seeds with enough room to grow.

    Fast-forward to 2021 and we are excited to welcome you all back to the pumpkin patch, we’ve doubled the size this year, and we have spotted all of our pumpkin varieties growing on the patch. We’ve got miniature Jill be Little’s, small white Casperitas, knobbly and warty Knucklehead pumpkins, and your traditional carving varieties like Wicked and Early King. The Early King can reach up to 12 kilograms in weight, so they really do require a wheelbarrow to be carted around – we’ll also have lots more wheelbarrows available to borrow this year!

    We’re welcoming back Roaming Giraffe events this year, who will be serving up delicious cakes, as well as their divine loaded hot chocolates – perfect for a chilly autumn outing! This year, for the first time, we’ll be joined by Amo La Pizza, who will make sure you don’t go hungry – we’ll have undercover seating too. We’ll also be joined by Shona’s Fabulous Faces, who will be on hand to make sure your little ones (and big ones!) look spooktacular! We cannot wait to see you all at the patch in October !

    J7M4+RP Oakham, UK

    Open 16th – 31st October

    Back for our second year – twice the size and double the fun!

    In May 2020, James and Peta launched Rutland Pumpkins – planting 8,000 pumpkin seeds on a field adjacent to James’ sister Abigail’s business, Live Lab, which provides grain, feedstuff and soil analysis for farmers across the country. We were delighted with how many people came to see us and cannot wait to see you all again this year!

    Before planting our first pumpkins seeds in 2020, as a pumpkin patch novice Peta sought the advice of pumpkin patch veterans Rob and Jen, of Yorkshire Pumpkins. Just in the nick of time too, the pumpkin seeds were about to be drilled in the ground and Rob informed us that a maize drill would definitely not do for planting pumpkins! As you know, maize grows upwards, therefore the seeds can be planted quite close together – not so for pumpkins – which need ample room to spread their vines and tendrils! This was timely advice and we were able to work with local contractors to buy the requisite plates and drill the pumpkin seeds with enough room to grow.

    Fast-forward to 2021 and we are excited to welcome you all back to the pumpkin patch, we’ve doubled the size this year, and we have spotted all of our pumpkin varieties growing on the patch. We’ve got miniature Jill be Little’s, small white Casperitas, knobbly and warty Knucklehead pumpkins, and your traditional carving varieties like Wicked and Early King. The Early King can reach up to 12 kilograms in weight, so they really do require a wheelbarrow to be carted around – we’ll also have lots more wheelbarrows available to borrow this year!

    We’re welcoming back Roaming Giraffe events this year, who will be serving up delicious cakes, as well as their divine loaded hot chocolates – perfect for a chilly autumn outing! This year, for the first time, we’ll be joined by Amo La Pizza, who will make sure you don’t go hungry – we’ll have undercover seating too. We’ll also be joined by Shona’s Fabulous Faces, who will be on hand to make sure your little ones (and big ones!) look spooktacular! We cannot wait to see you all at the patch in October !

      J7M4+RP Oakham, UK
      J7M4+RP Oakham, UK

      Open 16th – 31st October

      Back for our second year – twice the size and double the fun!

      In May 2020, James and Peta launched Rutland Pumpkins – planting 8,000 pumpkin seeds on a field adjacent to James’ sister Abigail’s business, Live Lab, which provides grain, feedstuff and soil analysis for farmers across the country. We were delighted with how many people came to see us and cannot wait to see you all again this year!

      Before planting our first pumpkins seeds in 2020, as a pumpkin patch novice Peta sought the advice of pumpkin patch veterans Rob and Jen, of Yorkshire Pumpkins. Just in the nick of time too, the pumpkin seeds were about to be drilled in the ground and Rob informed us that a maize drill would definitely not do for planting pumpkins! As you know, maize grows upwards, therefore the seeds can be planted quite close together – not so for pumpkins – which need ample room to spread their vines and tendrils! This was timely advice and we were able to work with local contractors to buy the requisite plates and drill the pumpkin seeds with enough room to grow.

      Fast-forward to 2021 and we are excited to welcome you all back to the pumpkin patch, we’ve doubled the size this year, and we have spotted all of our pumpkin varieties growing on the patch. We’ve got miniature Jill be Little’s, small white Casperitas, knobbly and warty Knucklehead pumpkins, and your traditional carving varieties like Wicked and Early King. The Early King can reach up to 12 kilograms in weight, so they really do require a wheelbarrow to be carted around – we’ll also have lots more wheelbarrows available to borrow this year!

      We’re welcoming back Roaming Giraffe events this year, who will be serving up delicious cakes, as well as their divine loaded hot chocolates – perfect for a chilly autumn outing! This year, for the first time, we’ll be joined by Amo La Pizza, who will make sure you don’t go hungry – we’ll have undercover seating too. We’ll also be joined by Shona’s Fabulous Faces, who will be on hand to make sure your little ones (and big ones!) look spooktacular! We cannot wait to see you all at the patch in October !

    Saturday 30th October 2021
    CVV and No Two Cycles proudly presents:

    Bill and Dave’s Grave Adventures – the Quest for the Golden Pumpkin

    Like the WWII Japanese soldier emerging from the jungle in Okinawa in the late 1980’s – the last contestant of the New Year’s Day 2021 Getlostathon emerged from the bush of Belvoir last week to arrive dishevelled but triumphant at CVV HQ to claim what he thought was first prize.
    Alas, all he did was inspire Bill and Dave @notwocycles to conjure up a variation on the Getlostathon orienteering theme with a Halloween twist. More waypoints have been added, more points are therefore available in addition to a cryptic clue to find the elusive Golden Pumpkin.
    If the code is cracked and the GP is spotted then additional points will be granted. Do NOT hide the GP from other contestants!!

    Two time limit rides are available – 1.5 hours and 3 hours. There will be a winner in each category but beware – excessively harsh time penalties will be incurred for every minute over your elected time. Points mean prizes but don’t be greedy!

    All you have to do is turn up at CVV HQ between 1000hrs and 1200hrs Saturday 30th October – pay £12 for adults £5 for kids (under 15) – receive a welcoming coffee or tea and snackette – get briefed by Big Dave and be provided with a map. The second you have the map in your sweaty palms, the clock starts ticking!
    Arrive back at CVV for a hearty Pumpkin soup and some banter. What more do you want? Nothing I hear you shout! Apart from the prize that is!
