We'd love that job - Truffle-hunter

What do you do?

I'm a farmer and I own my small mixed farm, but for the past 10 years, I've also been hunting truffles during the summer months. That's usually from July to September, but I've also been known to go out looking for them during the winter. I have seven specially trained crossbreed dogs, which I use when I go out to seek truffles. I usually spend between two and four hours a day looking for them. The best time to look is in the morning, because, come afternoon, there's a danger of me and the dogs getting bitten by adders and other reptiles.
