  • We’re planting a truffle orchard.

    25th February 2022

    Truffles and truffle oils are delicacies that most people associate with the warmer climes of the continent. So, it might surprise you to know that we’re planting our very own truffle orchard right here in Scotland. While it’s true that truffles are traditionally grown in France and Italy, some varieties thrive in cooler climates. Soil conditions can be ideal for truffle cultivation in parts of Scotland too. Truffles grow on the roots of trees and do especially well amongst oak, hazel and beech, all of which are indigenous to the UK and provide a fantastic habitat for our wildlife. In a few years, we hope to be serving our guests with our own Scottish-grown truffle delicacies. Watch this space.
