About Local Food

Qualla Berry Farm is part of a loose community of growers and marketers throughout western NC who are seeking to provide locally grown food to people who live and visit  the mountains. We are helping to develop ways to keep our rural land in agricultural production. We are listed in the Local Food Guide produced by the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project. For more about U-Pick farms, tailgate markets, and community supported agriculture growers, see their website:


October 2017--We are now taking orders for Fresh Baby Ginger and Fresh Turmeric! Harvest season for the Ginger is October 18 till it's gone and the Turmeric harvest will begin in mid-November. In many cases if you order both we will be delivering separately.

New photos have been posted in our gallery as of October 11, 2017!

We still have many extra turmeric plants which may be overwintered in a warm place to give you a good jump on growing your own next year either in garden beds or in containers. Turmeric does well in the ground or in containers as long as it's brought into a warm space for the winter. 

Also, we have some fun news...we are going to be featured in Edible Asheville magazine this December! Watch for it!

  Please join our mailing list to receive updates as the harvest progresses and for news about farm open houses, market appearances, and other events.
