Social benefits of truffles
I advice you guys to read the website. I think a lot of people get confused when they hear truffles as they just think of opulence.
The reality is a bit of mixed. The person harvesting them, gets a lot of the final price the product gets. Logistics are not cheap for 24 hours services (they usually take much less as they leave Spain or Italy around 4-5 pm and they are in London by 9-10 next morning, it’s actually quite interesting following the tracking of the parcels, we can talk about it if anyone interested as well). These people live in a part of the world where land is not great for having crops and where it snows quite heavily in winter (much more in previous years) and they wake up quite early and it’s really cold. On the other hand, they love what they do and they really have an eco environmental way of living taking profit of nature in a way to preserve it for future generations.

Fungus weekend in Beceite, Teruel
This is discouraging news. The president of the association Friends of the Fungus says: This year is the worse since I started harvesting fungus in the forest when I was 5.
Climate change is provoking all these changes in harvests in all different crops raising the price for commodities, specially the food related ones.
This is a good reason why we need to fight climate change everyday.
