The Truffle Farm Canberra
Hunt for truffles (with help from some four-legged friends).
July 30, 2019
A day at The Truffle Farm isn't just about traipsing through a forest or tucking into a fancy dinner. It's also a learning experience that you never knew you wanted. Take our word for it — you certainly do. You have a few options here. You can opt for just the truffle hunt experience ($60 per person), which will see you trekking through the Canberra hills with owner Jayson Mesman. Along the way, you'll learn plenty of facts about truffles and truffle hunting, and find bunches of earthy fungi — with the help of the trained pooches, whose noses will truly amaze you.
Afterwards, you'll head back to the shed for tasting. Alternatively, you can book in for the brunch option ($148) or the six-course lunch or dinner degustation ($198). Executive chef Damian Brabender will prepare the dishes in front of you — and there are opportunities to get involved, too.
