If you could find a company or someone who buys it from the guys we sell to you could probobly get more per pound or even on ebay you should be able to get a pretty good price per pound I would think. I will look and see if I can find someone who buys from the botanical houses or a site on the net for buyers. If I have any luck, Ill post on here so that you can get the info. Out of curiousity, how many pounds of yellow root do have to sell. They may want a order of, say 20 pounds.
Went to pick goldenseal berries Monday morning. They were few and far between and small due to the drought. Plant tops are small too. I usually pick between 2 to 3 gallons of berries. This year my wild patches only produced about 2 cups worth of berries. 1 out of every 30 plants had a berry on it.
