Yes, you read the headline correctly - here is your unique opportunity to own a truffle farm that is possibly going to begin producing truffles by 2024 onwards. This 3-bedroom rural lifestyle block has been lovingly planted in hazelnut trees inoculated with the Black Perigord truffle virus. The house is tidily presented and is ready to be updated with your personal touch. Located less than 11km from the friendly and vibrant township of Pongaroa you'll also enjoy the sense of community that lifestyle living has to offer.
