there was alittle upward movement on price here this week but not enough to talk about.......thats where they have got us in this state ..no hold overs'....can you imagine if they told farmers they had to sell their harvest by a certain date....
chieftain, I don't think that law is right,especially when what I dig is on family owned property.If price does not get better this year I will call the DNR and see if I can get a premit to hold my seng till next season. I hope that can work.Have you ever asked the DNR before for a hold over premit?

Tony I am from Tennessee too and I am not selling for nothing. How are you planning on keeping your ginseng if it does not go higher? Just in a cardboard box or I was told to freeze it. Let me know
I would also like to know about freezing root? Has anybody lost weight by just storing it in a paper bag or box for a year or more? Not sure what to believe on this subject,I would be thankful for feedback!
