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

1 bunch red radishes, cut into 6 wedges

Halve daikon lengthwise, then cut crosswise into ¼” slices. Transfer to a bowl and toss with radishes & salt. Let stand at room temperature, stirring occasionally, 1 hour.
