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: www.buyappalachian.org

February Farm Prep

Posted 2/9/2014 9:25am by John Clarke & Karen Hurtubise.

Yesterday John spread fall load of rotted sorghum in the hoophouse. I just placed an order for our lost but now found favorite pole bean, the white seeded caseknife pole bean. Lots of seed starting today and will finish garden teaching schedule. This May I am teaching Grow Your Best Tomato class at the John C. Campbell Folk School.
