The Oregon Truffle Festival is evolving and changing!
In 2018, we will begin operating as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
OTF has always been mission driven, with the dual purpose of promoting the glorious native culinary truffles found in abundance in Oregon’s Willamette Valley to truffle lovers worldwide, and establishing a collaborative educational and information sharing hub for the burgeoning North American cultivated truffle industry. Over the past dozen years, we’ve worked tirelessly to educate farmers, land owners, harvesters, truffle dog trainers, chefs, and consumers about every aspect of native truffles and truffle cultivation, while furthering the mycological research that began 100 years ago at Oregon State University.
As a nonprofit, the OTF intends to expand on its “party with a purpose,” with more year-round culinary, educational and training opportunities—essential to both a thriving seasonal food culture and the sustainable development of the cultivated truffle industry. The OTF is actively seeking grants and partnerships to help accomplish these goals.
