Truffle Hunts and Bookings

After the drought in 2019 and COVID closures in 2020 and 2021, we are delighted to be welcoming guests again this year on our hunts in 2022.

We will be offering two different options this year; a Saturday truffle hunt and lunch package and a Sunday hunt. We are a family owned and run farm, and we keep things simple. Unlike many truffle hunting tours, our hunts are in very small groups so that we can ensure everyone can participate and ask questions about the process, our truffiere and the preparation of this remarkable fungus.

Saturday Hunts and Lunch Platter: $120pp (max 12 people per hunt)

  • Starts at 11:30am. Before the hunt, a short discussion with us as growers will inform you about truffle, growing trees and the training of our dogs. We then follow our newest truffle dog, Fergus on a hunt through the Ilex, Robur and Hazelnut trees to find the magical addition to our lunch.
  • We return to the truffle room for a grading session and then enjoy a tasting platter inside or in our garden if weather permits.
  • The platters pair truffle with foods high in rich natural fats such as butter, cream, milk and eggs to unlock the truffle’s flavour.
  • Hunt experiences begin at 11.30am and finish approximately at 1:30pm.

Sunday Hunt: $80pp (max 16 people per hunt)

  • Starts at 10:30am for approximately 1 hour. This is the same experience as the Saturday hunt, but without the lunch platter.

Time will be available after the end of both hunts if you would like to purchase fresh truffle or some of our products to take home with you.
