Karen Hurtibise and John Clarke: Qualla Berry Farms

$2,500 — You-Pick Raspberries
Because of this grant “We will be able to diversify and enlarge our raspberry you-pick operation that will help sustain and grow our farm.” ~ Karen Hurtibise and John Clarke


Karen and John are planning to expand their farm operation by producing value-added raspberry products, medicinal herbs and farm garden beauty products. Qualla Berry Farms is also open to the public for tours by appointment only.

Expected income totals $11,700 in next 2 years.
