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.

Happy Thanksgiving from Qualla Berry Farm

Posted 11/20/2017 9:17pm by John Clarke & Karen Hurtubise.

Hi Friends-

It's Thanksgiving and as it happens every year, we are entering Chapter Two of our season. The Baby Ginger is now SOLD OUT for the season (except for a few pending orders-thanks for your patience!) and our Fresh Turmeric is just entering its PEAK SEASON.

We have a lot of turmeric still to harvest and we are taking orders on our website as usual for cleaned and packaged fresh rhizomes.

We are also traveling to the Big City this Saturday November 25th for a visit to Asheville City Market, so Asheville friends come see us there! We can bring pre-bagged orders along but will mostly be selling washed bunches and small sampler bags. This is especially fun since we are featured in the current issue of Edible Asheville magazine!

And--more Breaking News--we have a limited amount of Qualla Berry Farm Honey which is now available for sale. Our bees blessed us with a nice harvest of Spring Wildflower and Sourwood Honey and we have it in 6oz to 24oz jars (with fantastic labels produced by Signs Fast). We can deliver honey along with turmeric orders until we run out. The Honey price list will be posted on our website.


So we hope to hear from you or see you soon. We have an especially nice crop of Turmeric this year and we're glad to share this health giving and beautiful plant with all of you!
