It saddens me to have to put up my prices but to keep up with current licence costs which have gone up considerably, in some cases doubled and general running costs I am obliged to do this otherwise I will not be able to carry on with these courses.
I have altered my course costs on the bottom of the foray page but if you book between now and the 10th of May it will be at the original price of £80 instead of £100 per person for a truffle hunt/mixed fungi and truffle or £60 instead of £80 per person for a mushroom foray.
I’m looking to connect with British ex pats in the next month or two that live in France, Spain or Portugal that have truffle plantations or wild truffle orchards that need help at harvest time or for those that would like to consider woodland management for the sustainable harvest of T aestivum and T melansporum. If you are and you are not sure if your woodlands have truffle, I do woodland surveys to establish the potential for you. https://truffleandmushroomhunter.com/contact/
Due to cancellations I have availability on my truffle hunt tomorrow, late notice I know but it would be worth the trip out we harvested 300g today!!

My all time personal best, it was one truffle so tightly wrapped round an old stump I had to break it to get it out , 418g nearly half a kilo, sadly immature even at this size, gutted but still good for aroma infusions and training all my dogs this week 😊
