Stardew Valley has you going around Pelican Town looking for various items. One such curious item is Truffle. As truffle has many different utilities it is a good idea to stock up on some. In this guide, we tell you all about how to get Truffles in Stardew Valley and where to find them.
How to Get Truffles in Stardew Valley
Truffles are really a unique item in the game. They are not naturally occurring. Also, despite technically being mushrooms, they are not denoted as foraged items. Mushrooms on the other hand fall under the foraged items category. However, Truffles do give Foraging exp when picked up.
Truffles are usually spawned when there are Pigs on your farm. So needless to say, if you don’t have a pig, you will not get truffles in the game. Also, since pigs do not go out in winters, Truffles won’t spawn during that season. Despite this, Truffles do not fall under the category of animal produce. Hence they will not net you any profits under the Rancher profession.
Truffles also won’t be available in the foraging category at the Stardew Valley Fair. They also aren’t seen under the Forage item list. If you do have Gatherer or Botanist professions you will get some benefits. They sell for a base price of 625g. However, they can even be purchased from the traveling cart at times for 1875-3125g.
What Are Truffles Used For?
Truffles can be used to gift Leah, one of the bachelorettes. For the rest of the villagers, however, it is a neutral gift and is hated only by Maru. You can also use truffles to make truffle oils using the Oilmaker. These oils are sold further for a price of 1065g.
