Farmhouse Lunch and Truffle Experience at Cartwright Truffière Sat. Feb 11th


Farmhouse Lunch & Truffle Orchard Experience at Cartwright Truffière

Presented by: Truffle Dog Co & Willamette Valley Truffles

Join us for Truffle Orchard Experience at Cartwright Truffière nestled in the beautiful southern Willamette Valley, on Saturday, Feb. 11th, 2023.

At this event you’ll get to hunt for those truffles famous to chefs all around the world, the Perigord truffle! Join us un the Farmhouse to sample a spectacular seasonal truffle menu prepared by local Chef Andrew Hroza the Executive Chef at Ninkasi’s Living Room and local Oregon wine pairings before heading out into the field to dig some up with the dogs.

During this experience, you’ll get the feel of excitement that is digging up truffles as well as life on a Truffiere- that’s what we call a truffle orchard, pulling truffles right from the ground, and all the magic that is the Willamette Valley.

You’ll trek through the Oak and Hazelnut truffle grove, and follow the dogs among the truffle trees searching for the elusive fungi. We’ll share with you the secrets of truffle farming as well as the history of the Truffiere and cultivation, and when the dogs find a truffle you’ll have the opportunity to sniff the soil for the mouthwatering smell of the unearthed truffle- a rare treat.

*Please leave your dogs at home or in the cars, as they are not allowed on the truffle orchard during this event.

This experience is available for up to 14 for Lunch

This is the Truffiere ONLY portion of this event. If you would like to join us for both the Forest Hunt as well as the Truffiere Hunt, please follow THIS LINK.

This Truffiere ONLY portion of the event starts at 11:30 am

11:30 am — Join us at the Truffiere Farmhouse for Lunch at 12 pm where we’ll connect with Chef Andrew Hroza the Executive Chef at Ninkasi’s Living Room and recently voted “best local chef” by the Eugene Weekly! While enjoying your sips and bites you’ll learn plenty of tips and tricks to using truffles in just about any dish!

1:30 pm--The exciting part. Let’s go hunting for Perigord Truffle! Meet on the farmhouse deck for a discussion on the history of truffle production in Oregon as well as an introduction to the farm.

You and the rest of the band of adventurers will head out with the four-legged associates into the truffière. What will we find? Do they have different aromas? So many questions and the dogs are here, ready to answer them!

You will have a ring-side position watching the dogs locate ripe truffles….and when they do, you will have a hands-on opportunity to smell truffles in the soil and perhaps even dig them out for yourself! Please wear clothes that can stand a bit of mud for that reason– this is a farm after all.

3 pm — Back to the farmhouse to clean truffles and chat more. Any truffles that are available from hunts will be available for purchase at a special rate.

4pm– Depart, swag in hand, ready to explore what the Southern Willamette has to offer!
