The Burwell Davis family is the owner of Burwell Farms®. The name pays homage to Burwell Davis, who was awarded the land in 1776 for his service in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. The land given to Davis has been continually farmed by the same family ever since, with subsequent generations cultivating cotton, tobacco, and now Tuber borchii.
HOW WE GOT STARTED
Situated in the Coastal Plain of North Carolina, Burwell Farms® enjoys mild weather and ideal soil conditions for growing decadent Bianchetto truffles. In the summer of 2014, we planted 1,100 loblolly pine seedlings. After three and a half years of careful cultivation, we harvested our first crop of beautiful truffles available to gourmet kitchens.
After several successful growing seasons, we continue to expand our truffle production, planting more truffle-producing pines and cultivating the soil to ensure large high-quality harvests. Burwell Farms® is meeting demand for our decadent truffles. We are proud to provide your restaurant or kitchen with a unique aroma you can’t find anywhere else!
