Trouble with truffles in Stokes County,
The Buckley Report, WGFHP Fox 8
There is a trifle of trouble with the truffles.
Every industry in North Carolina had pioneers that helped it get started. Textiles had the Cone family, wine had the Sheltons and now truffles have a couple of dozen farmers, including Jane Morgan Smith.
But truffles are a difficult project — you can work for five or 10 years before the trees fruit.
Jane did her work, had some of the most famous people in the kitchen praise her product and that’s when the trouble started.
See what, in this edition of the Buckley Report and, more importantly, see why Jane isn’t ready to give up.

You might not think of truffles as a North Carolina product…but these days you would be wrong.
That’s right, that most French of the funguses is gaining ground here in the Tar Heel state!
We’re heading to Stokes County on a truffle hunt and then into the kitchen at Josephine’s Bistro in Greensboro for some mouthwatering recipes featuring this exotic ingredient.
