TOPIC: am i getting ripped off?

am i getting ripped off? 9 years 1 month ago #400

All of the roots we dig are wild:meaning we just happen upon them in the woods. We usually just dry them and sell them bulk no matter what the age or size. we only dig half a lb or so (more this yr) usually. Should we seperate them by size and age? And how do i approach my buyer now?

Nice bunch of roots!! What state are you digging in? Minnesota here,,,its pretty much winding down. Mostly just the main stem is visible.

Very nice lot of roots BTW!

Aye, down here in WV, alot of the ginseng is getting eaten by deer and such. A couple days ago, I found four 3 prongs that only had leaves on one of the prongs (odd thing is tho, on the one prong not eaten, all five leaves were full and healthy)

.....and only a select few I have stumbled across are turning yellow (maybe since I'm further south in warmer climates?)
