"When we first started looking into the truffle industry Noel's name was the one that got mentioned as a person we should get in touch with if we wanted to start things off with the best chance for success. Having worked with Noel on our project for the last two years I can personally tell you nothing could be truer. His experience, passion and genuine care for the projects he commits to has been invaluable. There is no way that our project would have progressed so quickly or smoothly without Noel's involvement nor would we have ended up with such a cutting-edge facility."
"As a starting point, with the hope of establishing a small boutique truffle farm we attended one of Noel’s workshops. The workshop was informative and inspiring, and it was obvious to us that Noel was the perfect person to assist us with the project planning & development of our new truffiere. Of course, Noel’s experience & knowledge is invaluable but it’s his personalised approach and accessibility that really sets him apart. We are still in the early stages but feel very confident that with Noel’s continued mentorship and support we are on the right track for success."

"With years of research and to numerous truffieres, plus qualifications as a professional horticulturist, we thought we were ready to establish our own truffiere. However, after attending one of Noel's workshops we realised that there was a lot more information and hand-holding that we really needed. Thanks to Noel’s experience, attention to detailed planning and ability to help us understand what it was we needed to do and why, we now have the peace of mind to know that we have given ourselves the best possible chance of establishing a successful enterprise. We can’t thank Noel enough for his support and advice."

He has been accessible through all our new experiences, as we establish our 3 hectare truffle farm and has shared lots of his practical advice about the expanding industry with us.
