KYSENG...

I am from southern middle TN and it has been bad dry down here since the end of August.

All of my seed bed plants are down and out now and the wild sim I have close to home is too. I expect that most of the wild is down and out too, with probably a few exceptions.

I just checked with a local buyer and he gave me a price of 350.00 lb for dry at smaller quantities, said he could do a little more if you had a few pounds.

I only went hunting two times this year and kept about half of what I found for eating myself. I may have 2-3 oz of others that I will sell this year, but think I will wait until around Thanksgiving and check with my local buyer again.

I havent been for a week or so due to not having any new places to go. I may go out this weekend and check a few lower spots I overlooked this year but I'd be blessed to find anymore we've been pretty dry ourselves. I didn't get to go as much as last year but I still have around 1lb and 7 ounces dry. I'm a third year digger and still learning that areas I previously overlooked had some of the best seng I've found to date. I'm close to ohio and west virginia.. tristate area I hope to find some places in WV to go next year. In my area there is easy access to most wooded areas so I don't find much old old seng. I need to get lost in some real mountains lol thanks for reply and have a blessed day.

It's around $350 here in south central Ky. also, for average root.
Higher prices are for the better and select roots. Have to be really good for higher prices.
Small roots even though legal age at 5 years are a hard sell this year.
Everybody is talking 10 year age next year on seng.

Ginseng is a hard sell this year,Don't expect a high price for average roots. It's all about location and quality.Most buyers are really conservative on what they are buying. Where I'm at in south central Ky $350 is a good price and it has to be decent ginseng. People are calling from every where trying to sell and telling me that they are having a hard time selling for any price.
