Where do I find Truffles in Stardew Valley?

Buying a Pig only costs 16,000g!

It’s impossible to forage the unique mushroom in-game, but pigs can. Build a Deluxe Barn (after the first and second upgrade) by giving Stone (650), Wood (1350), and 42,000g to Robin in total at the Carpenter Shop. After that, regularly pet them and let them touch the grass. You can collect Truffle anytime, especially at the end of the day.

This rare loot is available only at the Farm and won’t exist outside unless ConcernedApe enables ranching on Ginger Island. No farm layout affects its spawning possibility.

How do I get more Stardew Truffles?

Either buy more pigs from Marnie’s Ranch or let them reproduce naturally. It’s also important to pet them every day manually or with Auto-Petter. However, they’ll need to go outside so remember to open the doors! They’ll produce more Truffle the happier they are.

Can you buy Truffles Stardew Valley?

The short answer is yes, but it won’t be cheap. It’s available from the Traveling Cart on the Cindersap Forest near the Secret Woods. The item costs 1,875g-3,125g while its oil counterpart costs 3,195g-5,325g.

Is there a way to get Truffles during Winter in Stardew Valley?

Can you grow seasonal crops during Winter? Definitely not. It’s the same as asking for Truffle while nothing thrives in the cold. Plus, pigs don’t like the cold weather (as with every farm animal), and that’s terrible news.

How rare are Truffles in Stardew Valley?

It’s so rare that only Pigs can search it up for you. Even Hoe or Pickaxe won’t do the job as they’re well-hidden beneath your farmland. That’s why investing in them is always worth it in the end because of the returns.

How to maximize Truffles in Stardew Valley?

A single Pig gives you little amounts of the rare mushroom. But a larger population from multiple Barn and daily petting and feeding will help! Release them into the outside world and wait for the magic to happen.

What is Truffle Oil used for in Stardew Valley?

Here’s everything you can do with the artisan item.

You can start using the Artisan item for different things in Stardew Valley.

In crafting a Rain Totem, you’ll need one piece of material. You can also make a dyeable Dark Bandana Shirt with cloth at the spool of the Sewing Machine. If you wish to change your apparel’s color, it can be a yellow dye at the Dye Pots.

However, Mayor Lewis requests one Truffle Oil in Year 2 Summer 21 from the Mail for the “Mayor’s Need” quest for 750g and one Friendship heart. And in completing the Artisan Bundle in the Pantry (from Community Center), you may use it as an alternative.

Is it better to make Truffle Oil in Stardew?

If you’re picking between luxurious and standard oil, the former is ideal. Its regular selling price costs 1,065g and scales up to 1,491g with the Artisan profession. The normal version only costs 100g without any perk bonus.

Is it worth making Truffle Oil?

The luxurious item takes six hours to produce – that’s 178g-249g per in-game hour. Its regular counterpart offers only 100g, and you have to use Sunflower. Corn and Sunflower Seeds produce the worst results, and you’ll get negative profit.

Is Truffle Oil expensive?

Artisan goods usually cost high because of the processing time and general value to Pelican Town villagers. It’s even the perfect gift for Harvey during his birthday! Although Wines are way above the competition, this oil type is also at the top. 

Where is Truffle Oil in the supermarket?

This merchant sells overpriced goods in Stardew Valley.

Out of many stores in-game, only the Traveling Cart offers everything you need including this item. Since the vendor relies on smuggling goods, expect a higher price versus putting it into the Shipping Bin. If you’re lucky, you’ll get its lowest price at 3,195g, but the highest is 5,325g.

How do you extract Truffle Oil?

Place Truffle at the Oil Maker once you have crafted the Artisan equipment. Afterward, you’ll need to wait for six hours to complete the production. Note that placing the mushroom is irretrievable, and there’ll be no chance to get it back.

Why should you never use Truffle Oil?

The short answer lies in its purpose. It’s not about the using part but more on asking, “why use it?”. After major updates, it’s only possible to use the goods to make nice clothing, dyeing ingredients, and quests and bundles.

How long does it take for a Pig to find Truffle in Stardew?

There’s no specific time to find the ingredient, but here are some criteria and tips to consider regarding the barn animal:

  • There’s a 99.99% chance of mushroom production if a Pig walks on an unoccupied tile. 
  • Friendship Hearts doesn’t affect the generation chance, but daily petting is still a good game mechanic as they’ll find more Truffle (66% increase).
  • Even after finding a piece, your farm animal will still search more. 
  • Pick Botanist (collects Iridium quality regardless of other factors) and Gatherer professions (double harvest).
  • The wild mushroom will continue to pile up until the next season starts.

Why isn’t my Pig making Truffles Stardew?

There are times when your barn animal won’t produce something. It’s not about your relationship with them from petting (although it’s an excellent in-game mechanic to increase loot further). Check and consider the following if you’re doing these:

  • No more spaces for movement. Obstacles that hinder Pigs will eventually make the farmland run out of room. However, it’s also an excellent control to make a good production concentration in a location.
  • Crafted flooring or paths are outside your barn. Since Truffle grows underneath the soil, your barn animal won’t get the rare mushroom because of concrete. 
  • Have you fed them yet? They won’t do anything without Hay to power them up! Always fill Silos with feeds so they can return the favor.
  • Pigs won’t produce the wild loot if it’s raining, storming, or during Winter. They all don’t like getting wet or dry from cold and would rather stay inside with a Heater.

Can Pigs produce Truffles on grass in Stardew Valley?

Placing Grass Starter outside their home is like giving them another treat to get going. While the farmland tile is occupied by grass, a Pig can still produce a Truffle. Just make sure to have free spaces where it can move, and feed them daily to have an uninterrupted process.
