How did it all start?
The story of the foundation of our truffle farm began years ago, when we created the Thracian Truffles brand and all the gastronomic masterpieces with truffles we produce.
Despite the difficulties to establish the Bulgarian truffle on such a specific market with recognised world leaders, the high international appreciation of its qualities inspired us to set up a place in a natural environment where every tourist can experience the emotion of touching this treasure hidden in the ground, understand how valuable it is with its nutritional and health value, have the opportunity to sample and feel the unique taste qualities and at the same time enjoy themselves.
Our truffle hunting farm was built with great desire and care and that is why every visitor will be welcomed as a dear guest and we, the farm team together with our favorite truffle-hunting dogs, will our utmost to provide you with a different and unforgettable experience.
