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.

Last Chance for Raspberries

Posted 10/27/2008 5:56am by John Clarke & Karen Hurtubise.

Monday October 27,2008 FREEZE COMING!

Dear Raspberry Lovers-

We have had only light frost so far but a freeze is predicted tonight and Tuesday night so today will be the last chance to pick raspberries for 2008. There are still a number of good berries left.

We both have to work today but will leave the canopy set up for self service U-Pick.

Thanks to all of you for your patronage this season!
