Diversification Opportunities for Farmers & Landowners
We have already established truffières (orchards) of our own in the recognised growing areas of France - in the hopes that we can show the French how to do it! We are now looking in the UK where truffle has grown (uncropped) for hundreds of years. Gérard Chevalier, a Mycologist and the world's leading expert on truffle says 'the conditions in parts of England are identical to those we have in France - there will be truffle growing everywhere'.
So Truffle UK Ltd is keen to encourage farmers and landowners with sites in suitable locations where type of soil, site orientation, rainfall (and the potential for irrigation) are all-important issues go to instructions for establishing your truffle orchard.
We would supply the infected oak and hazel trees at discounted rates for orchards of 20 trees plus and offer advice on how to maintain the truffière thereafter to an agreed protocol.
On request, Truffle UK Ltd would:
Of particular interest to us are sites in the south of England, on chalk and limestone strata with high stone content and on east and south facing slopes. Landscaping projects on industrial or residential developments and around quarries, could benefit from the planting of truffle-infected trees - producing some income from otherwise sterilised land.
Note: Truffle UK Ltd contract rates are available on request.
