Overview

The Folly is Queensland’s first commercial truffle farm, situated in Ballandean, Queensland, at the heart of Granite Belt Wine Country. The Folly Truffles welcome visitors to their truffiere on weekends with tours available all year round, and truffle hunts during harvest season (June to August). As it is a working farm, bookings are essential to avoid disappointment.

Tours (and seasonal hunts) commence with a walk and talk through the truffiere where guide Maple will explain the whole process of truffle farming, from planting, to paddock to plate. Upon conclusion of the tour a tasting is involved at the truffle cottage, complete with a glass of wine in an informal and intimate atmosphere.

Truffle Hunts

Truffle hunts run on weekends during truffle season (June to August). The hunts commence with a walk and talk through the truffiere where you are invited to follow truffle dog Barry as he sniffs for the elusive black gold. Guides Ben and Maple will explain the whole process of truffle farming and truffle hunting, from planting to paddock to plate. Guests are invited to get down on the ground and sniff for truffles, get their hands dirty and pose for photos with ripe truffles. Due to seasonal variability, not all truffles will be able to be harvested on the day. Upon conclusion of the tour guests are invited to relax back at the truffle cottage, where Maple will demonstrate how to prepare a simple French peasant lunch, complete with a glass of wine in an informal and intimate atmosphere. A laid-back, yet informative way to pass an afternoon.
