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:


2017 Qualla Berry Farm Turmeric


Thanksgiving 2017--We are still taking orders for Fresh Turmeric! Harvest season for the Baby Ginger is over as we are sold out after the orders received November 14. Turmeric harvest will continue into December. Thanks to everyone who has ordered so far this season!

We will be at Asheville City Market once again this year and our first visit will be Saturday Nov 25 from 9 am til noon!

New photos have been posted in our gallery as of November 20, 2017! And watch for videos and postings on our facebook page at Qualla Berry Farm.

We have a limited amount of Sourwood and Spring Wildflower Honey from our bees this year and it will be available for delivery along with turmeric orders or separately.

We still have many extra turmeric plants which may be overwintered in a warm place to give you a good jump on growing your own next year either in garden beds or in containers. Turmeric does well in the ground or in containers as long as it's brought into a warm space for the winter. 

Also the Edible Asheville magazine featuring our farm is on the newsstands now! Watch for it!

  Please join our mailing list to receive updates as the harvest progresses and for news about farm open houses, market appearances, and other events.
