Private Truffle Hunts

In addition to our popular truffle hunting experience days, we are able to offer a limited number of private truffle hunts between September and March. These may be for your company’s clients or staff, a club, or for a group of family or friends. The content of the days, duration, number of attendees and meal options are flexible but the programme as well as one or more truffle hunting sessions can include an introductory talk about truffles and give the opportunity for sampling a truffle dish. The current locations are given below. If you are interested, please get in touch with:

  • Venue choice (location if your own).
  • Indicative dates (NB we are already running public truffle hunts on most Saturdays in the Autumn truffle season between mid-September and mid-January).
  • Approximate group size, indicating if the ages of any children.
  • Any thoughts on the content of the day (see above).

Your own site

If you have beech, oak or hazel woodland growing on chalk or limestone you could have truffles. If you are interested, we can make an assessment of your chances without a visit. Similarly, if you have your own truffle orchard, we could run this event for you.
