A Day in the Life of a Truffle Hunter

Spend a day walking in the shoes or gumboots of a Tasmanian truffle hunter. Experience all the elements of unearthing the highly sought after truffle – from training your dog to cooking up a truffle feast – on this immersive two-night, all inclusive experience with Truffledore owners, Timo and Ina. This is a one-of-a-kind immersive experience for the real truffle (and dog) lover! You will be staying in our farm stay accommodation for two nights and have the full undivided attention of truffle farm owners Ina and Timo! Starting with a farm tour, and a meet and greet with our three gorgeous truffle dogs, you will then get to choose the dog you want to work with and learn how to train your dog to find the scent of a ripe truffle! After you've completed a training session and built rapport with your dog, you'll head off into the truffle farm for a real life truffle hunt! You will learn how to work with your dog to find truffle, how to assess if the truffle is ripe and ready for harvest, how to dig and unearth it and later how to clean and grade your truffles! After an eventful day you'll join Timo in the kitchen to learn how to make the most of your fresh harvest and cook up a delicious truffle dinner! Be as involved and hands on as you wish or sit back and let Timo do all the hard work while you enjoy a well-deserved glass of Tassie Pinot by the fireplace! Two nights of accommodation and all meals and drinks (with meals) included. Maximum of four people! $2980 total for two people in our Oakwood Cottage, $2950 in the Hollyoak Cottage.
