Dr. Charles Lefevre Bio

Charles Lefevre

A visionary force behind OTF and founder of New World Truffieres, Dr. Lefevre is recognized internationally as a pioneer of the North American truffle industry, and is unquestionably the most successful producer of inoculated trees and producing truffle orchards on the continent. He received his PhD in Forest Mycology at OSU, where he earned a reputation for his insatiable curiosity and his uncompromising integrity. He designed and developed one of the largest gathering of truffle farmers, scientists and entrepreneurs in the world for the annual Truffle Growers’ Forum to share their expertise and experience in what is otherwise a very secretive and fiercely competitive industry.
