Hunts are only available during winter, but there’s nothing quite like the serenity of a crisp winter’s day following the experienced truffle dogs in their quest to find the black winter truffle, their excitement for the hunt and their reward when they find a truffle is a unique sight.

Your guide will explain everything you want to know about truffles, the farm and how we started. Truffles can be mysterious and aloof, hiding snugly underground. So when the truffle dogs, Barry, Roxy & JJ, indicate there is a truffle from the odour they are trained to detect, we will venture to the location and, like archaeologists, we gently dig into the ground, tracking the aroma in the soil until we find our black diamond. The illustrious black truffle!

Our hunt experience is different to most as we have very few rules, we allow people to participate in digging up the truffles (limited numbers per session), interacting with the dogs while they work and getting a personal photo with them at the end.  Best of all being able to purchase what you dig out of the ground.  The field trip takes approximately 1 hour and then we
return to our warm and cozy pavilion where you can make yourself comfortable and you’ll be offered a variety of truffle tastings, from savoury to sweet, to indulge your senses further.

Whilst comfortably seated in the pavilion, we’ll weigh the harvest and demonstrate how truffles are washed and graded.  Most importantly, we share some handy tips and tricks for getting the most use out of your truffle as well as how to pair truffle with food to create simple and delicious meals.

Please arrive 10 mins prior to the commencement of the hunt, there are photo opportunities with our friendly Clydesdale horses (maybe even a carrot or two to feed them) or enjoy a coffee or tea whilst we gather the group.  This is a walking tour outside on our rural 10-acre truffiere so closed-toe shoes along with appropriate warm winter clothing is required. For elderly or disabled persons, please let us know and we can arrange transport to the truffiere. Umbrellas may also be an idea as hunts continue in all weather conditions. In order for everybody to enjoy the hunt and for the safety of all participants, children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Please be aware that you will need to dunk your shoes in a foot bath for biosecurity reasons, this won't damage your shoes, however is compulsory to prevent the spread of diseases.
