Welcome to the World of Truffles and to the world class cultivation & science we apply. We have packed a lot of information into our website. That’s because the commercially successful cultivation of the Perigord or Black Winter Truffle is a complex and involving activity.
Truffles are all about time and we want you to take your own time reading through our website and here you can find out more about my journey towards creating what I am confident will be one of the world’s most productive and valuable truffle farms.
The blogs, news and events entries should help to give you a sense of how we got to this point in our development and an insight into where we are going. If that encourages you to join us on this fascinating and rewarding journey then so much the better. I look forward to welcoming you to becoming a “Truffiere”.
