Jayson’s truffle story started a decade ago when his passion and skills with dogs took him to Western Australia. Whilst living and working in Perth, Jayson discovered Samson the black Labrador. The inseparable pair were invited to the Wine and Truffle Company, the world’s largest producing truffle farm, to see if they could make it as a truffle hunting team. Samson was a natural and now nearly ten years on Samson’s portrait is the centre of The Truffle Farm logo.
