February HEAT – Long’s Natural Farm

Our monthly Healthy Eating and Tasting (HEAT), presented by UAMS South Arkansas Center on Aging, Healthworks Fitness Center, SouthArk and the Medical Center of South Arkansas, was held Tuesday, February 12th at HealthWorks Fitness Center in El Dorado.

In lieu of February being Heart Health Month, Karla and Dwayne Long, owners and local producers of Long’s Natural Farm, were our featured chefs.

Calling all veggie lovers!! Karla and Dwayne brought a few of their Certified Naturally Grown Asian Red Mustard Greens, Bak Choy, Dragon Carrots, radishes, Rosemary, Parsley, and Eggs. Karla demonstrated how to make a sausage and Red Asian Mustard Green Quiche that was absolutely amazing. The group also snacked on Dragon carrots and radishes.
Dwayne guided the group on the 4 questions to ask at your local farmers market. 1) Is it local?, 2) How was it grown?, 3) How was it raised?, and 4) See for yourself by visiting the farm.

Thank you Long’s Natural Farm for sharing with us!
