BY OPG ŠULER,
Lavender Field Location:
It was an snowy and cold day in January 2009.
When I sat down to have an pleasant Sunday launch with my family , since we had some land that nobody uses , after the first meal I dropped a bomb on them, saying:“ ...We Are going to breed lavender, and make our own Lavender Farm....“
If I can make the proper preparations , find out the markets and find plants, learn how to properly PLANT, BREED, HARVEST and finally SELL LAVENDER and LAVENDER PRODUCTS they will help me .
And so it was, I have spent hours and hours online , investigate, contact people that do Lavender
I analyzed the soil and we got the GO sign
And so it started...
We picked up the paste very fast , and soon 3500 plants were in the ground
This is ho the field looked like in Spring of 2010, coming to life , it was a perfect sight , result of you're own manual labur
After that a summer came and it was time to consider Harvesting ,
The field was ready and the crew also , since it hard woking thing , we have prepared some authentic Croatian meals for the crowd , to keep them well fed
Day 1 flew by , it was hot and we gain a nice tan :)
Again problems with the weather in the Day 2 , the brawl hit us hard , and we had to work in unhuman conditions to save the rest of the Harvest
Finaly it ended ok , more than ok , we had Harvested about 2tons of Lavender Flower and got about 180kg of Whole Dried Flower!!!
And the rest is History, follow Lavender Croatia in the future and join our team
