Re: North Carolina truffle farm - $40,000/acre

I know/know of several people into truffle production in NC.  I tihnk some wil do okay, and I question how well their economics will hold up when supply increases as much as potentially possible, with so many acres planted...it is another version of the  Great Zuchini War. 

I like truffle oil and have had truffles, too.  If as  many as are thinking they will make $40 K per acre actually plant and harvest, we will probably be able to find truffle-flavored potato chips at the Piggly Wiggly store for a buck a bag.
