North Carolina truffle farm - $40,000/acre

Franklin Garland has found out how to grow genuine French truffles in America.  The rare black Perigord truffles wholesale at $800/lb. and the yield is expected to be 50 lb/acre.

 It takes 7-8 years for initial production.

I've eaten truffles a couple of times in Europe.  Expensive and very good.
