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.

Qualla Berry Farm September Update

Posted 9/6/2008 11:04am by John Clarke & Karen Hurtubise.

Dear Raspberry Lovers!

Fall raspberry season is here again and we have a nice bloom happening. We expect to have U-Pick openings on Saturdays this September on the 13th, 20th, and 27th from 9AM to 1PM or until we sell out. We also have sourwood honey for sale and a limited amount of Organic Asian Pears.

Tropical Storm Fay bailed us out with a nice soaking rain after an alarming dry August. We will hope the rest of the hurricanes bring us some rain but not too much!

Thanks again to our Work Party weeders who helped make this season possible by doing the May weeding.

If you are receiving this email you are on our mailing list and will get a weekly confirmation email regarding our U-Pick openings. More details on our farm are posted at www.quallaberryfarm.com .

Peace to All,

John and Karen
