High revenue. Low farming costs.
Find out about European black truffles and why truffle orchards
are both highly profitable and an excellent way to diversify land usage.
Current black truffle production is almost exclusively in Europe and Australia, but with proper science, these truffles are now being successfully cultivated around the world, including North America. Designed for potential truffle growers, this in-depth seminar, presented by American Truffle Company’s Chief Scientist Dr. Paul Thomas and Chief Truffle Officer Robert Chang, provides a detailed overview of the latest science and methodology involved in truffle cultivation, along with the business factors one must consider to successfully grow truffles.
Included in the program is a dog training session by CPDT-KA certified dog trainer Alana McGee who will talk about dogs' integral role in harvesting truffles: "there is no better machine to sniff out truffles than the highly sensitive nose and the extreme mobility of a properly trained dog." You'll see her trained dogs in action at Robert Sinskey Vineyards Truffle Orchard where Robert Sinskey will provide insights into managing the first scientific truffle orchard planted in the Napa Valley area.
Includes seminar, buffet lunch, truffle orchard tour/dog training demo at Robert Sinskey Vineyards Truffle Orchard and bus transportation.
