TRUFFLE HUNTING IN TUSCANY
a unique, unforgettable experience!
What is a truffle? Truffles exist in a symbiotic relationship with certain species of trees, growing around the roots when the soil quality, temperature and moisture are just right. We organize private truffle forays — led by me and my trained, experienced truffle dogs Nedo and Brezza — for digging delecious, rare truffles.
Where and when you can do it? Truffle forays are available all over the year, apart May. Truffle varieties are seasonal and based on a specific harvest calendar. Our two-to-four hour forays can accommodate single parties or groups of up to eight. Forays can take place on our farm or in the wild forest land, located throughout our farm, extending all over Tuscany. We have gained permission and licence from Tuscan state and we are fully insured, as trekking licenced Tuscan guide (GAE), for these outdoor activities.
Truffle hunting in the forest In contrast with the farm truffle hunting, the wild truffle trekking could take place in heavily canopied Mediterranean forests but that’s a nice way to discover some beautiful part of Tuscany. Participants should be prepared for cool, wet or warm weather and bring gear and footwear appropriate for tramping through all kind of terrain. Rubberized gardening style gloves are highly recommended — truffle gathering means the opportunity to work your hands in forest soils. If you don’t have gloves, we will be happy to provide them. We are pleased to offer a number of deluxe gourmand foray packages, including privately prepared meals by us with local, fresh and seasonal ingredients. These will include:
