The last two years have been a difficult for us all with the 2019 drought, then the 2020 bushfires, the smoke, then the welcome rain and finally the unwelcome Covid-19. Very difficult for primary producers both in production and now in markets, both domestic and international.
Despite the difficult start to the season, this truffle year has had the best winter lead in weather in 3 or 4 years with the consistently cooling weather and adequate rainfall from February. The quality and yields this year are expected to be quite good.
We will be part of the Festival again and with the restriction will be doing what we can in a virtual approach with more online content including chefs and recipes. Refer to the Festival website, www.trufflefestival.com.au
It is our intention at Bluefrog to start our truffles hunts in late June but again within limits set by the Covid-19 restrictions for NSW. We are continually monitoring the NSW Covid-19 website for advice and will inform you via website and facebook.
Truffle will be on sale at the farm by appointment and online via the website.
We certainly hope to see you again at Bluefrog in 2020.
