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 and Ginger




July 2017--The growing season is hitting its peak and our Ginger and Turmeric are growing well. We expect a strong crop!

New photos have been posted in our gallery as of July 30, 2017!

We have many extra turmeric plants and some ginger plants, and only so much space to grow them, so we will be having a Farm Open House and plant sale Sunday July 30 from 1 to 5 PM for those who want to grow their own. Turmeric does well in the ground or in containers as long as it's brought into a warm space for the winter. We will notify everyone on our mailing list by email so stand by.

We will be taking orders for Fresh Baby Ginger and Fresh Turmeric starting in October. Harvest season is October to December.

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