Truffles Are Coming



It's been three years since we started hilbarn fresh produce boxes and we wanted to say thank you for helping to spread the word through reading our blog. We know that many of our customers who've been with us for a long time really enjoy opening up "the surprise in a box" with each weekly or fortnightly delivery. And we love introducing them to the amazing diversity of the fresh produce we source from our Tasmanian growers, and to their stories. This month, Hil's story on Tamar Valley Truffles featured in Country Style's May edition with photographs by Tasmanian photographer Alan Moyle. We snapped the one of grower Marcus Jessup (photographed) during last year's truffle hunt where we learned that Tamar Valley Truffles are highly prized both in Australia and internationally. If you'd like to be truly adventurous and try this year's local truffle harvest, here's your chance. We are offering fresh Tamar Valley Truffles as optional extras in hilbarn boxes from mid June. That's when Marcus expects the season will start. If you're a hilbarn customer, let us know if you're interested and we'll send you more details.

Congratulations on the article in May's Country Style magazine! I have always wondered what truffles were like. Pity I don't live in Tasmania to come and try yours:) Jane
