OUR STORY

LA TRUFFIERE, truffle farm in French, is situated 35 minutes drive from Canberra. Click here to see our location. All our trees are inoculated with the authentic Tuber Melanosporum or French Black Truffle.

Our truffle ‘culture’ goes beyond planting trees, growing trees and harvesting. One of the family members, Joelle, was born and raised in Le Perigord, home of the famous Black Truffle, the Tuber Melanosporum. As such, the truffle culture is part of our life especially during the winter months where the slightly intoxicating scent of fresh truffles lingers in the kitchen.

I have a vivid memory of my mother coming back from the woods neighbouring our garden, with our dog on her heels, and holding her basket as a treasure while telling me which truffle will reach a good price and which one we will use for an omelette. Nowadays the truffle season is a reminiscence of my childhood.”

Our Border Collies have joined us in this venture. Both were made familiar with the truffle aroma as a puppy. Then, as they grew older, we trained them to find truffles in the ground.

LA TRUFFIERE is proudly supporting the annual Canberra & Capital Region Truffle Festival.
This year LA TRUFFIERE will be represented at the Melbourne Truffle festival.
