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:


2016 Qualla Berry Farm Turmeric and Ginger




It's still Harvest Time! As of Nov 20, 2016 we are SOLD OUT of Fresh Ginger but as of January 19, 2017 we are still taking orders for Fresh Turmeric. Thanks to everyone who has ordered this season.

New photos have been posted in our gallery as of October 18, 2016!

We'll be harvesting Fresh Turmeric through November and into December.


Thanks to everyone who came to our Farm Open House and Field Day Saturday Oct 29. We had about 40 people who helped us drink 3 gallons of ginger-turmeric lemonade and we had a great time! Hugh Lovel's presentation was very interesting and the group spread biodynamic preparations around our fields and hoophouses.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth at Asheville City Market Nov 26 and Dec 3! It's great to see the buzz of interest about Turmeric.

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