Truffles are a type of mushroom that grow on the roots of Hazel and Oak throughout Europe. Different types grow throughout the continent, from the Italian White to the French Black and the northern Summer Truffle (Tuber aestivum var. uncinatum) which is offered here. The fresh truffles are harvested from July to November and are highly prized for their distinctive flavour, commanding prices as high as €300-€400 per kilo. Truffles are used to flavour egg dishes, pasta, fish, honey, oils and even ice-cream!

Johnstown have teamed up with global truffle expert, Dr. Paul Thomas from England to offer young Hazel trees impregnated with the truffle fungus. He has developed a sure way system to inoculate the trees without contamination to ensure success in a shorter time, with higher yield and reliability. Truffles should be produced 3-4 years after planting.
