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

Ginger and Turmeric Order Form

Order Form Instructions:

When you fill out this form and click "submit" this information will be emailed to us and we'll prepare your order. Email us at jkqualla@frontier.com for further correspondence. Your email will also be automatically added to our turmeric/ginger list if you're not on it already.

Please be sure to include your email and daytime and evening phone numbers so we can contact you to confirm your order and schedule your pickup. This is fresh produce and it needs to be picked up promptly! Please note that we no longer will have pickups in Brasstown as John retired from the Folk School as of August 31, 2018.

Yellow Hawaiian Ginger and Red Hawaiian Turmeric are priced at $16.00 per pound of fresh rhizomes which are trimmed, washed, cured and packaged in gift bags. Limited quantities of other Turmerics are available and will be priced as follows: Indira Yellow @$18/lb, BKK at $22/lb, Black at $24/lb. This year we will also offer field washed fresh dug whole plants at the farm.

We are not set up to take credit card payments. Checks may be made to Qualla Berry Farm.

As of Dec 12, 2018 we are no longer taking and filling orders for ginger for the 2018 season. We will be filling orders for turmerics through December and into January 2019.

Thanks, Karen and John
