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

Qualla Berry Farm - Fresh Ginger and Turmeric

2018 Qualla Berry Farm



November 18, 2018--Happy Thanksgiving! We are well into the Fresh Turmeric harvest and are continuing the Fresh Baby Ginger harvest! Our ginger and turmeric  have grown well this season and we will have a fantastic crop of each this fall. We are taking orders for both now and will begin filling Turmeric orders this week. We also have Bubba Blue Ginger plants for sale as well as Hawaiian Red, Black, BBK, and Indira Yellow Turmerics. 




New photos have been posted in our gallery with the status of our plants this fall. There is also a picture of how close the lava flow in Hawaii got to our supplier, Puna Organics! They have made it through the volcano and the hurricane safely and expect to be able to fill orders this winter.

Join our mailing list to receive updates as the season progresses and changes for news about farm open houses, market appearances, and other events. We will be teaching this year and helping interested home growers and small farmers discover the magic of the plant family Zingiberaceae.

Happy Thanksgiving to All!

Karen and John
