The Truffle Growers Forum serves as an annual gathering and focal point for the International truffle industry allowing growers, purveyors, researchers and journalists to keep up with advances in truffle science and farming methods, engage with the wealth of experts present and make valuable contacts within the industry. Because in truffles, as in every other endeavor, it matters who you know, the Truffle Growers’ Forum provides the foundation for future business and research collaboration.

The Truffle Growers’ Forum will be held Friday, January 28th, and Saturday, January 29th, 2011 at the Valley River Inn, Headquarters hotel for the Oregon Truffle Festival. Friday consists of a lecture series covering the breadth of the truffle cultivation industry culminating in the Festival keynote address by truffle researcher and cultivator Danilo Bernardini of Raggi Vivai, Italy’s largest truffle tree producer. Breakfast and a truffle lunch are included on Friday. Saturday’s events are in the field, consisting of a Truffiere tour with Friday’s speakers, a Winery Lunch with a guest chef, and a truffle hunt with truffle dogs for the native Oregon white truffles near the winery grounds.

The full program for the 2011 Truffle Growers Forum will be announced over the course of this fall. The Growers’ Forum is hosted by Dr. Charles Lefevre, owner of New World Truffieres, Inc, co-founder of the Oregon Truffle Festival and organizer of the Truffle Dog Training and Truffle Cultivation Seminars.
