About Us

Growing truffles in Victoria's Yarra Valley, we utilise a natural environment approach. Our belief is replicating and fostering the natural development is the key to producing the most aromatic & flavourful truffles, and that a premium product such as truffles should be fully natural.


Lani the Truffle Dog is current star of the team. Partly due to cuteness, and primarily due to her burgeoning skills in locating ripe truffle.
A new apprentice joined the team in 2018, and Jager is expected to contribute to the canine efforts in 2019.

Without the truffle dog, it's not quite impossible, but humans must resort to kneeling down and inspecting all the truffles which have been located pre-season by surface signs. The 2015 season proved this to be possible, but not feasible, causing a long lasting limp for the rest of the year.

Stuart -the human part of the team.

Utilising skills from a bachelors degree and some first year biology, he uses an observational and analytical approach to truffle growing. {ie. wastes a lot of time making notes, but learns things too}

This has resulted in a growing understanding of all things truffle. Observation and experimentation is an ongoing effort, with some semi-formal research as well, both internal and collaborative.
