About Us

Growing truffles in Melbourne's Yarra Valley, we utilise a wholistic, environmental approach. Our belief is fostering the relationship between truffle and tree is the key to producing the most aromatic & flavoursome truffles, and that a premium product such as truffles should be fully natural. Therefore no chemical sprays or fertilisers are used. Pruning, slashing, weed, insect and soil management is all carried out in line with organic practices.

Truffle Dog "Lani" and owner Stuart Dunbar

Lani is our truffle dog, and key to locating ripening truffles. {and consultations on which to leave undisturbed to ripen more}

Lani is a Lagotto Romagnolo, an Italian breed that goes back centuries. 
Originally gun dogs & water retrievers, they are high energy working dog, and are now regularly employed as truffle hounds in Italy.

Stuart studied biology, water science & computing during his science degree, and is finally putting the science portion to use. Continuous observation and research is key to improving understanding of all things truffle, from the truffiére through to kitchen & plate. {this is time consuming, but is gradually resolving some of the mysteries of truffle growing. each season brings new discoveries, new problems and sometimes even solutions}
