Our Goal:

Truffière (Truffle Plantation)

A truffle plantation is traditionally known in France as a Truffière (trooff-i-yeah, rather than, truffle-i-er), or you can simply call it a "Truffle Plantation". Our truffière started in 2018, with 665 French Oak trees planted two years later. The trees are infused with either the Summer Black Truffle 'Tuber Aestivum' or Winter Black Truffle 'Tuber Melanosporum'. This majestic two hectare of land will give our customers the ultimate truffle hunt experience.

Our Consultants have completed our soil test and found that our slopes receives ample sunlight, with good water run off. Our soil was tested at a PH of around 6 and the truffles need a soil PH of around 8, so 200 tonne of lime was added to bring our two hectare of land, up to the PH of 8.

So finally,

The two hectare or 665 French Oak trees planted in 2020 will give us our first truffle harvest in June 2024, at the four year mark. It is not uncommon to start getting 30% your harvest after four years, and therefore we predict our full 100% harvest achieved by 2030.
