Heatherlea Oaks is a 10-acre lifestyle block situated in the Horowhenua region. Owners Arthur and Linda Cooper have planted 230 Hazelnut and Oat trees which after careful monitoring and irrigation have been producing export-quality Perigold black truffle for six years. The pungent and aromatic taste of the Perigold black truffle is a delicacy admired around the world. Arthur and Linda, with their faithful truffle dog Pippa, take pride in harvesting and grading for culinary standards and assure the delivery of top grade, fresh black truffle.
The Club is organising a trip to the farm on Tuesday 23 July to tour the truffière and gardens, followed by a truffle hunt with Pippa. Two nights later, on Thursday 25 July, the Club will host a dinner to celebrate truffles.
So book now for one, or both events. It is sure to be a highlight of the Club calendar this year.
