Boasting the cleanest air in the world, with its rich volcanic soil and its climate that resembles the south of France, it is no wonder that Cradle Country Farm is reputed for the amazing aroma and excellent quality of its French black winter truffles.
Cradle Country Farm produces reliable quantities of excellent quality, aromatic black truffle. We take pride in growing our truffle under the ‘closed loop’ system of farming. We use low impact, spray free, sustainable farming methods which means our truffle is allowed to grow as it would in its natural environment.
Every day during June, July and August, our truffle hunting team heads out into the crisp wintery weather to gather huge baskets full of Cradle Country Farm truffle. Our truffle is hand harvested, washed and graded by our dedicated truffle team, who say “it is like having Christmas every day”…
*our tasmanian truffles
Over the past three years we have worked together with Henry Terry of Tasmanian Truffles and every week during winter we met Henry in the Ashgrove carpark to do the ‘Truffle Shuffle’. We delivered baskets full of our freshest black winter truffle for him to use his products and in turn we sold Henry’s products under our Cradle Country Farm banner. We are extremely proud of his recent achievements and are pleased we were able to help him on his way. As fellow Tasmanian truffle farmers, we are excited to see that Henry and Anna will represent Tasmania in the 2018 season of My Kitchen Rules (MKR).
As we develop and grow and with the opening of our new Truffledore, we are ready to create our very own range of truffle products. We are excited to announce our recent partnership with the talented Naomi Moyle. Naomi has come on board and is working closely with our passionate Truffledore team to develop our very own amazing natural, unique and outstandingly delicious truffle product range. Naomi comes with a serious pedigree, having worked closely with Maggie Beer over several years to develop her famous line of products. We are thrilled that she has chosen to work with us exclusively to create the most tantalizing truffley treats.
