This forum is an annual gathering during the first weekend of the Oregon Truffle Festival and is a focal point for the North American truffle cultivation industry. It attracts an international cast of speakers and growers from across the continent to discuss the breadth of thought and methods employed by successful truffle producers throughout the world. It enables growers, researchers, journalists and truffle purveyors to keep up with advances in truffle science, engage with a wealth of experts and make valuable contacts within this growing industry. Day one is the speaker series and truffle luncheon, and day two is in the field, and includes a visit to a truffle orchard and a delicious winery luncheon held at a unique Oregon countryside venue. Both days include a full breakfast. This is a winter truffle excursion at its most authentic.
