Truffle Season is here

Simon Johnson sources their black truffles from Coomer Truffles in the cool climate of the southern forest region of Manjimup in Western Australia. The region is known for producing some of the best crops of Tuber Melanosoporum (true French black winter truffle Perigord genus) in Australia, thanks to the climate and rich Karri loam soil.

David Coomer of Coomer Truffles  planted 1400 hazelnut trees on his small, family owned farm over fifteen years ago. Simon Johnson place orders directly with David and he heads out to the truffle orchard with Twiggy and Olive (his English pointers) to hunt out the truffles that are ready for harvest that day. David then cleans, grades and packs the truffles, takes them to the airport to ship to us and they are delivered direct to you – all within a few days. The season will start only when the truffles have reached maturity and are at their very best. Never before.

Coomer Truffles is a true paddock to plate producer. Picked, graded and packed to your requirements by the grower.

Pre-orders for truffles are now available, please email northbridge@simonjohnson.com
Please note the cut off for truffle orders is 11AM each Friday, with delivery expected the following week.
