I was told by a missouri buyer, yesterday that Wild Ginseng was going to start out at $325.00 Lb. dried, is he for real? or is he trying to make some bucks?

It does sound steep, but Ive been told it has something to do with new laws about selling to China. I am pretty confused, I can't find any info about it but I keep hearing it.

As for Les, Its going for around $1000 a pound for wild in my neck of the woods

Hi Jonathan, What part of the country are you in? I live in Southern Illinois, Season just started here Sept. 6th, We have to buy a lic here to harvest Wild Ginseng,four Prong only also,, None of the buyers can buy here in my area until two weeks after the start of the Season Sept. 20th, I spoke to another buyer today that says around $300.00 a lb Dry for wild Ginseng starting out price, $22.00 for Golden Seal Dry/$6.00 Wet for Seal,, Ginseng went to $1100.00 lb here last winter, maybe it will go up again but may not according to the Buyer I spoke with. If you are getting $1000.00 lb dry for wild Ginseng ,,Please give me the Buyers name ,phone number.

Sorry for the confusion, the 1000 a lb I spoke was the end of last season. I was told by an employee of the USFS that 1000 is where it would start this year. I have not called around to see if that is the case or not. So again sorry for the confusion.

Hi Chief, here is the Illinois dealer I spoke with, he is from red bud Illinois
Darrell Schmieg

Red Bud, IL 62278
PH: 618/282-3267
I also spoke with burkbuegler fur co. in Perryville mo. he said Wild Ginseng was probably going to start out around $325.00, I believe to get a correct price maybe Turley ginseng Co. would be the number to call, but, I have not been able to get ahold of them Yet.
