Visite de la Première Truffière Didactique d'Europe

Visit Europe's first educational truffle farm

The truffle raises many questions: its edible varieties, the species of trees that can be mychorized, truffle-growing techniques, cavage, production methods, the education and indispensable collaboration of the truffle dog, etc. All of these discoveries are part of the guided tour of the Truffière Didactique in Bonvillars (VD).

Thanks to the Association "1ère Région Truffière de Suisse" and the Compagnons de la Truffe Vaudoise, Europe's 1st Educational Truffle Farm has come into being. An idyllic setting at the foot of the Bonvillars vineyards, 14km from Yverdon-les-Bains, the 6,000 m² plot overlooks Lake Neuchâtel. The truffle plantation features 12 species and more than 240 trees, which were planted in 2016 once they had been mycorrhised.

The tour is led by a truffle-growing expert who is a member of one of the truffle associations and the point of contact for all questions about this endearing and mysterious fungus.

The tour lasts around 2 hours and ends with a snack served near the Truffière with a selection of local produce.
