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

Sorry No Raspberry Picking tomorrow

Dear Berry Lovers-
The intense heat wave has taken a toll on our June berries and our first season, which usually ends around July 4, has come to an end. It seems July came early this year!
We are seeing strong growth on the canes which will bear the fall crop and given some rain they will be producing in September. We will keep y'all posted by email as usual.
Thanks to everyone who came and picked during June!
John & Karen
