Lavender Field in Starovičky

Yesterday, Claudia and I visited a lavender farm in Starovičky.  

Starovičky is a small village of about 900 people, about 35 km (22 miles) south of Brno.  It's near Hustopeče and only about 19 km (12 miles) from Břeclav.

The lavender farm started back in 2014 when over 40.000 bushes were planted.  The peak season is in June and July when you can come pick your own lavender and of course visit the gift shop for every conceivable lavender product you could think of.

From the parking lot is about a 1,2 km walk along a dirt path.  Along the way are fields of sunflowers and a view of the Pálava Hills.

The entrance fee to the farm is 60 Kč ($2.50) for adults.  They provide you with a basket and clippers.  Then you only pay for what you cut.  Many people were there just taking photos.

At the gift shop Claudia bought some lavender coffee and soap to take back home as gifts.  I wasn't a fan of the lavender wine but the lavender lemonade was pretty tasty.

It was a really nice day.  Now I want to go back and have a look at nearby Hustopeče.
