Black winter truffle farm offering hunts, tastings and truffle products to discerning foodies.

Black Cat Truffles is located on a beautiful 20 acre property in the Central Victorian Highlands overlooking the Creswick State Forest. Established on rich red volcanic soil and blessed with climatic conditions perfect for truffles to flourish, our 1,000 French and English oaks have now been producing high quality, black Perigord truffles for several years. We sell fresh truffles to a number of high-end restaurants locally and around Victoria and also produce a range of quality truffle-infused products for foodies and truffle enthusiasts, both online and in our Farm Gate Cafe and shop.

On Saturdays and Sundays during the three month winter truffle season, we offer truffle hunts and truffle tastings which are a delightful, fun and delicious way to discover what the intriguing world of this elusive ‘culinary diamond’ is all about. One of our most popular activities is a “Truffle Hunt & Taste of Truffles Experience” which takes place every weekend morning in June, July and August. Here people rug up, don their gum boots and join our truffle-foraging dogs to find a truffle in our truffiere, hear a talk about the fascinating art, science and magic of truffle farming then move into the snug Cafe for a glass of bubbles and a selection of delicious truffle-based tastings. On Saturday afternoons our hunts take a different form.

Instead of the five-dish degustation truffle-tasting menu offered in the morning, guests select a tasty pizza cooked in our wood-fired oven and liberally slathered with fresh truffle – often extracted from the oak tree roots just a few hours earlier – and a bowl of crispy truffled-fries with our own Truffle Aioli, plus a selection of crisp regional wines or a spicy mulled-wine to sip around our cheery outdoor fire pit.

The beauty of our orchard (or ‘truffiere’ in French) and gorgeous gardens which surround the homestead and Cafe (which is a stunning space in itself, with a fully operational licensed and commercial kitchen and capacity for 20 seated guests) also provide a wonderful and unique event venue and the perfect place for a small boutique wedding or significant occasion of any kind. Our resident truffle dogs, Winston and Lottie, black cat, Kora and herd of eight multi-coloured alpacas add to the personality and interest of Black Cat Truffles and provide it with that extra something when a very special venue is being sought for a very special gathering.

In addition to using freshly harvested truffles in all our dishes, we also source the finest quality produce and ingredients from local and fellow artisanal producers whenever possible.
