Other Herbs in demand right now 2 Years, 4 Months ago  
I didn't know quite where to post this one...so this was my best guess.

Guys and Gals, as you are out and about, keep some of the other herbs in mind. Right now, for instance, I have a damand for Wild Indigo root and Witch Hazel bark.

The Indigo root is currently at $12/dry pound, and the Witch Hazel bark at $1.25 a pound. I can also use Witch Hazel leaves (green, clean and dry) at $1.50/pound.

A complete pricelist is available on my site.

Here is the USDA Plant Data_base_ _link_ for Wild Indigo (Baptisia tinctoria) or "Horsefly Weed" target="_blank">http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=BATI


There are a lot of things we see as we look for ginseng or tend to our plants. If we are observant, we can fill in off season (generally late summer) by producing some of these other herbs that are in demand.

Re:Other Herbs in demand right now 2 Years, 3 Months ago  
Anyone know of any buyers for blood root and Mayapple in Central/Eastern Kentucky. Ohio is a long way to drive for me, just for a few pounds of roots.

Thanks,

I don't know anyone who buys down there.

Bloodroot is up a little right now. I've been telling guys to wait until later in the summer to dig it....let it seed and it also loses a lot of its moisture so you won't have as much trouble with mold.

I can't take anything with dirt or mold, but I could deal with you via mail if you like. I have a full pricelist posted on my site.

About how many roots of Mayapple/bloodroot would it take to make a pound on average? I will probably get a chance to go out this weekend and see what I can see.

Re:Other Herbs in demand right now 2 Years, 3 Months ago  
I don't know for sure, as I've never dug either to dry. I would imagine when we get a little farther along in the spring for the bloodroot (maybe not for mayapple) you will dry close to 3:1. I'm just speculating, I don't know for sure.

If I had to guess how many average bloodroot roots were in a dry pound is this area I would guess maybe 50-100.

Several of the KY Ginseng dealers do buy off season roots. Contact your local dealer and ask, and maybe they can recommend someone.

What are your prices? I don't see anything listed on your site. I"m paying up to about $12 for clean, dry bloodroot.
