TOPIC: Wisconsin Dealers?

Wisconsin Dealers? 2 years 2 months ago #37575

I have been harvesting for nearly 25 years and my local buyer has retired and I have contacted two other dealers within a 40 mile radius. They seem to have no prices for dry this year. I would like to sell mine as every year because I supplement my retirement with it.
Anyone know where I can sell it here or if I can sell it out of state? I am also looking for an idea on prices for this year.
My root is mixed since we were cleaned out by scavengers the last two years. I have some big root and some small and I normally sell it all at one time.
At 65 it isn't getting any easier to climb those hills and dig out the rocks.

Hello mariska, I know it can be tricky finding a good reputable dealer. If you have the same ginseng transport laws as we do in Tennessee you can't legally take the roots across state lines without a permit, and I think you have to have a dealers license to get a permit. However, if you have enough ginseng to make it worth while a lot of the bigger dealers will send someone to meet up with you. I know the prices everywhere this year are somewhat sketchy. Hope you find a good connection!

First off I don't have enough sang to get a dealers license and make it worth while. Secondly I have tried two of the names (closest to me) on the list and all they say is it will be sketchy as to prices.
All I want to do is to sell it at a reasonable price so I can meet my obligations I counted on this income for.
