Cradle Country Truffle Hunt

Meet our most experienced handlers and their amazing truffle hunting dogs who will guide you through the Truffiere to discover and harvest the elusive, the expensive and the extraordinarily delicious French black truffle. Anyone for a 3 course Truffle Lunch?



The truffles which are formed in the top 20 cm of the soil are harvested manually and graded by Fran, who is the owner and dog handler for Sunny and Izzy. Each week during May, June, July and August, Fran and her wonderful team of truffle hunting dogs visit Cradle Country Farm to harvest truffles. It is like having Christmas every week.
