A truffle family with over 10 years experience in all aspects of the truffle industry. A fascinating story in a beautiful location. Discover why truffles have been such an alluring ingredient for thousands of years.
The Booth family are one of Australia’s most experienced truffle families. They have been a part of the Manjimup truffle industry for over a decade; hands on from growing and distribution to dog training and hunting. 

As farmers they understand that for chefs, getting truffles at the peak of freshness is paramount. Prized by many of the world's best chefs and restaurateurs for their quality and consistency, their truffles are from the most prolific truffle growing region in the Southern Hemisphere. Within 24-48 hours of being unearthed, you'll have perfectly ripe truffle in your hand, thanks to their worldwide delivery networks. Stringent grading standards mean the weight you purchase is pure black truffle: cleaned, graded and packed with care in their specialist grading facility.

Gavin, Mel and their son Brin, value a place on the land knowing that shortcuts don’t work. Nurturing their soil, trees and environment is key to the perfect truffle. Orchards are a mix of oak and hazelnut trees, on the roots of which the Booth’s nurture black truffle. A team of truffle dogs is a vital part of Australian Truffle Traders; with an uncanny ability to hunt out only the ripest of truffles to be unearthed by hand. Come and join the hunt!

Australian Truffle Traders also sells retail truffles Australia wide via their online shop. They host truffle hunts on their Manjimup truffle orchard for the public and hospitality industry. The Manjimup truffle season is in the Southern Hemisphere winter / Northern Hemisphere summer. ​ Australian Black Truffle Season: May to September

Love, love, love ! We had such a great time truffle hunting, the ladies who lead the tour are amazing, informative and friendly. Very relaxed experience and the grounds are beautiful. And delicious truffle brie to try at the end.

Gavin and family at Australian Truffle traders offer a very special experience in their Truffle hunt and its one of the most memorable & enjoyable activities you will do. Molly our sock wearing truffle magnet led us through the beautiful acorn trees and everyone was given the opportunity to gently prize out a truffle from the rich soil below. The entire growing process is explained and the symbiotic relationship between Truffle and the surrounding environment is fascinating. Highly recommended.

Very nic3 experience, take some gloves as you can get dirty if you want to digging truffles! Would be nice to have a clean truffle at the end of the hunt to have a taste of to see what natural truffle actually tastes like.

Words can't even begin to describe the experience of truffle hunting with this dedicated truffle family at Pozzi Rd, Dingup farm. To Mel, Molly, Maria and Bryn, you guys were just incredible people with a passion for outstanding produce (Molly being a stunning truffle dog who I'll admit took a liking to us from the start). Thank you for welcoming us to your home, your farm, your livelihood and your world. We were privileged to hear about what you do and dig up some pretty wicked truffles. I ticked off a bucket list item today and I have you all to thank for that. Ending the day with my own truffle that we all dug up fresh that afternoon was a highlight and I can safely say, it's the best truffle I've ever consumed. I appreciated you sharing your knowledge, history and passion and being incredibly patient with a diverse crowd. We, our family and our friends will be back to share this experience again next season. Thank you! If I could give 1000 stars I would.
