Our signature tour - This is one of our most popular farm experiences – A truly nose to paddock affair.  If there’s a marriage made in winter heaven - it is a Truffledore Pinot Noir coupled with Cradle Country farm truffle…

Cradle Country Farm is the only truffière to offer you a genuine hunt and harvest on site at the Truffle farm – where everyone has the chance to get down and dirty to unearth their very own ‘Black Diamonds’.

With our intimate group of truffle enthusiasts, our day starts as we gather by the roaring fire in our bespoke Truffledore for a catch up.  Introductions out of the way, we recite our Ode to The Truffledore and toast to a successful hunt with a glass of sherry or port to warm the cockles of our hearts.   From there we gear up, don our scarves and boots, grab our baskets, call in the hunting dogs and it’s off to the Truffière.  Once there, you will learn the art of hunting, dog handling and harvesting and have the chance to dig up the elusive, the expensive and the extraordinarily delicious black winter truffle.

Baskets full, we trundle back to The Truffledore to enjoy the bounty of our harvest in the longest of long table lunches.  You will be surrounded by thousands of dollars of truffle and enjoy the wafting aroma as you sit down for your four course long table lunch with lashings of freshly harvested truffle. 

Every year we are luring more truffle lovers and new truffle recruits from across Australia and beyond as our reputation grows for producing some of the most aromatic truffles in the world.  Come and join us down on the farm, where our hospitality is as warm as our Truffledore fire.
