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!
