Episode 348. Poke Salad, Mullein, and Other Crop Alternatives in Southern Arkansas

In this episode of Voices from the Field, Kandi Williams of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff’s Small Farms Program talks with Arkansas farmer Michael Henegan about his farming heritage and some of his methods to reach markets that others don’t by wildcrafting local herbs and plants, including mullein and poke salad.
Kandi also works with the Silas H. Hunt Community Development Corporation, which partnered in producing this podcast.
