FORESTRY PURCHASE OPTIONS

Our Guiding Principles — Ethical, Ecological, Environmental & Sustainable


We focus entirely upon tree growth from “acorn germination, to planting and husbandry over the long term life of our trees” to produce great truffles. Fortunately, our attempt at providing the finest quality produce delivers sustainability through significant natural, mature hardwood tree reforestation. It thereby replenishes and protects a part of the natural environment under threat from climate change. This gives us as much satisfaction, as successfully producing the finest luxury food.

Why Buy?


  • Supply Collapse – 95% of global truffle production lost and drought is causing recent seasonal crop failures.
  • Demand is rising exponentially. In the United States alone, it has climbed from $4m to an estimated $30m over the last decade.
  • Luxury not Commodity — The world’s premium luxury products, foods and drinks are craved by the tens of thousands of untapped BRIC and MINT country wealthy.
  • True French Grown black Perigord truffle at €2,000p/kg command a sustainably high premium in the retail market over truffles from other truffle producing countries.
