We’re glad you found us! Please share us with all of your friends!!
Dutchman’s Truffiere has been established to be the first truffle orchard in the desert Southwest. We will be planting 10 acres of Holm Oak (Quercus ilex) inoculated with tuber malensporum (black Perigord truffle) spores. It will take approximately 7 years for the trees to fruit. We are also looking into planting trees inoculated with tuber magnatum (white Alba truffle) spores.
Our truffiere will also be the first crowd funded truffiere in history. We have selected Indiegogo as the crowdfunding platform of choice. Interested persons can select a level of backing that is comfortable for them, with as little as $1 and as much as $100,000 or more.
Crowdfunding has produced more than 16,000 projects that have been successfully funded, with more than $130 Million in pledges. Successful projects along with funds pledged approximately quadrupled year over year from 2010 to 2011. Indiegogo is THE original crowdfunding platform of choice and a good fit for projects like ours!
We look forward to having you as a Founder and being able to schedule your tour of the truffiere. Until then, thanks for looking and thanks for being a backer!
