The Blue Frog Truffle Farm (or truffiere), has been harvesting black truffles (T. melanosporum) since 2007. The farm is located just north of Canberra (5 km from the ACT border), close to the Federal Highway and was established in 2003 with the planting of just over 2 hectares of oaks and hazelnut trees. The area was increased in 2008, with additional oaks, to approximately 4.5 hectares.
The Blue Frog Farm owners, Wayne, Lanie and son Justin Haslam harvest twice a week and conduct truffle hunts during the season on Sunday for groups and the for the general public, from late June until mid August.

During the 2021 season, we are conducting truffle hunts for the public on Sundays at 10.00am sharp from 20 June until 1 August, subject to COVID-19 restrictions on the day, climate and evidence of truffle fruiting. Hunts will include the harvest with dogs, industry information, tastings and the opportunity to buy fresh truffle and truffle products. Sunday hunts are $85 per person, $30 per child 11 to 17 and accompanied children 10 years old and under are free.
The harvest dogs, contracted by Blue Frog Truffles, are owned by Gillian Cummins, of Crookwell, NSW. Please note that we cannot allow hunt participants to bring their own dogs to the hunt.
