Our most important partner is our customer. We firmly believe that our success depends on the success of our customers. With this philosophy, our goal is to share our knowledge and experience to maximize your orchard’s potential. In sharing this information with our customers, we believe that the United States truffle market has the ability to transform previously stagnant agricultural areas.
Modern farms depend on modern technology and modern business practices for survival. We have partnered with several European truffle experts; the world leaders in truffle research, tree inoculation, and orchard management. This partnership has made exponential strides in the last few years to better understand the complicated mycology behind truffles. Recent discoveries and deeper understandings in truffle science are now available to us, and through us to other truffle growers. The industry in Europe has seen unprecedented progress and success in recent years.
One such example in Europe has occurred in Teruel, a province (and town of the same name) in the south of Aragon, Spain. Teruel was a small, poor area prior to the truffle industry’s revitalization. After several concurrent initiatives, this province has produced multiple truffière owners who have planted over 100 hectares, or 250 acres, of inoculated seedlings. These orchards are now highly productive. As a result, the owners and surrounding community have reaped the benefits financially and culturally. With access to the same information, and even more modern improvements, we firmly believe this can occur in certain areas of the United States.
Carolina Truffières is proud to offer these proven, innovative methods here in the United States.
NATGA is the trade association that brings our young, emerging industry together. Growers, researchers, consumers, and other interested parties meet twice a year to share ideas and concerns with the common goal to promote the truffle industry in North America. NATGA is vital to our success. NATGA gives our industry a voice; and to learn about orchard establishment and maintenance, regulatory issues, marketing, and business-related issues. If you have not joined this organization, we encourage you to do so. It is well worth the modest investment. Join here!
Ongoing research is being performed with NC State Agricultural Extension Services/USDA sites. Contact us for specifics.
