We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land where The Truffle Barn is located, Gundungurra Country, and pay our respects to Elders past and present. We celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who work, live, preserve and farm on this land.  

 

Historically, The Truffle Barn was a biodynamic cattle farm, now the trufferie has been established and run using permaculture principles.  Sustainable and organically cultivated truffles are rare, and for good reason. Weed management by hand is quite the commitment, as is not using any ‘additives’ to the soil, even those labelled ‘organic’. Our trufferie’s mechanical inputs have been limited to lime (a by-product of the construction industry to raise the soil PH) and biodegradable weed mats (to keep our diverse weeds at bay). We believe the effort to maintain a sustainable trufferie has been worth the intense aromas and taste of The Truffle Barn truffles.

We are also passionate about caring for our planet. The Truffle Barn is a 100% off-grid, small scale farm. The trufferie is irrigated using captured rain water and the farm is completely powered by solar. We also aspire to transition much of our farm equipment to be powered by solar.

Whilst most of the property is kept as native grassy woodland, we also plant for diversity and future generations. This includes trees for firewood, construction and fire resistance.
