Country Life does truffles

Country Life, National Radio’s farming and country programme, covered the truffle business on last week’s show. I took producer Tania Oolders down to Ashburton to interview John and Iris Burn, and you can hear Peg having her refresher course in the Burns’ truffiere. Tania also interviewed Carolyn Dixon of Crop & Food Research, and Bill Lee, who is setting up a new truffle tree nursery (working with Tim Terry). It’s a good 30-odd minute summary of the state of the business down here, and well worth a listen. Audio stream and podcast available.
