Such great news this week with the first truffles unearthed in Smoko for Alpine Truffles owners Mark and Taola Baldwin.
On Sunday while doing some routine leaf blowing in their English Oak tree plantation, their dog Charlie started digging. After initially thinking that Charlie was being a naughty dog digging a hole, they soon realised what she had found, their very first Perigord truffle.
Adding to the excitement, after walking along a little further the owners noticed another truffle popping out of the ground as well.
We were fortunate enough to visit them yesterday. Here is a sneak peak of what we found.
