The Booths’ dogs are all re­homed — a mix of res­cue and ex-cus­toms dogs. Rani is 15 years old; a Quer­cus ilex, or holm oak tree; Viva, 15, loves attt­ten­tion and was orig­i­nally trained to be a prison dog; Brin ex­plor­ing the yard; Bri­ony, one of the six High­land cows. “They are purely or­na­men­tal. Mel loves them,” says Gavin; from the hum­ble can­vas bag to restau­rants around the world. “Mel and I work well as a team and we both quite en­joy the hard work of truf­flf­fle farm­ing,” says Gavin.
