About Us

Our Story

truffles of Tasmania owns and operates a plantation totaling 50 hectares in a rural farming dominated region in northern Tasmania near a small town called Deloraine (population of 4500). We are situated under the great Western Tiers mountain range with year round fresh clean air and regular snow falls in winter harvest period. Most of the plantation is from 11 years old up to 15 years old and all truffles are harvested under English/French oaks or the evergreen home oak by our well trained team of dogs. Our harvest season runs from June until mid September. We have an export standard grading and packing facility to cope with the extra quantities.
