  • Family friendly? Of course!
    As a family centred business we're proud to welcome families and kids onto our hunts with special pricing for family tickets, teenagers and kids under 10 free. The truffle tasting is not child specific but depending on your child's taste they may enjoy! Failing that, we make fresh gelato using local fruit and plenty of child friendly flavours!
  • Do you always find truffle?
    You won't miss out! During truffle season (June-August) we're guaranteed to find truffles
  • Will we get to pat the truffle dogs?
    Absolutely! The truffle dogs are the star of the show when it comes to our truffle hunts. They're also much loved family pets, so when the hunting is done they'd love a cuddle or selfie! The truffle dogs are off-lead during the truffle hunt but please rest assured they are very friendly animals!
  • Can I try digging up truffle myself?
    Yes! Our truffle hunts are a hands on and immersive experience. We encourage all our guests to have a go.
  • Can I bring my dog?
    No dog/s or any kind of animal may be brought to the orchard by truffle hunt guest due to potential biosecurity risks.
