HOW TO BUY GEORGE'S TRUFFLES
The New Zealand Black Périgord truffle season runs for three months sometime between May-August every year - when exactly it starts and ends varies from year to year.
Here at George's Truffles we follow an industry-set grading system that determines the pricing structure on a per gram basis. Truffles that are found during our truffle hunts are cleaned, inspected, graded and priced according to this system. Read a detailed description of our grading standards here.
Delivery to the buyer
Once cleaned and graded, our truffles are cooled, packed and dispatched by courier within 24 hours of being harvested. We have a target of 48 hours from the truffle being harvested to being delivered to our buyer. This is our commitment to ensure we provide truffles at an optimum freshness on delivery.
In the delivery package there will be instructions on the best continued care of the truffle to maximize the duration of freshness.
From then on it is up to you how you choose to enjoy these beautifully delightful, nuggety little lumps of natural goodness.
Satisfying demand for our truffles
George's Truffles have an existing customer base that we will always supply to preferentially. However we welcome all new customers, enquiries and pre-orders. Contact us to discuss your needs.
If we have a really successful truffle hunt, we will sell some of these truffles on our Instagram and Facebook pages. These truffles will be subjected to the same grading and pricing system, with the price of the truffle advertised along with a truffle selfie.
If you are interested you will need to act fast as these truffles do go quickly!
*Note: Truffles are grown and harvested seasonally and therefore weather conditions can affect or limit production as well as occasionally impact our scheduled truffle hunts.
