Default Ginseng buyers ?

I have a good amount I intend to harvest off my land this year. Does anyone recommend a reputable buyer that will offer a good/fair price for roots this year ? PM me direct if you would rather do that. It's been a while since I sold some and the buyer I went to is no longer in the business. Thanks for the input.

I think the Mifflin Trading Post (in Richland County) still buys it.

Seapro is correct. Dave and Dusty Bright at the Mifflin Lakes Trading Post buy ginseng.

Grab a copy of Fur Fish & Game magazine, there are ads in the back for buyers of ginseng. Kroger and Gander Mtn carry it and it is published here in Columbus.

appreciate all the responses, was hoping someone had experience with a good buyer. I sent a request to ODNR for a list of registered buyers, but it's like selling fur, finding a buyer who gives a good price is always the name of the game. I will post a few pics in the coming days when season is in.

When you get your list call each one of them and ask what they are paying per pound. Then ask when their scales where last checked by the state.

And do not forget to check up on the laws. The laws changed this year and are being enforced.

You can bet the buyers all say "It's so hard to find a good seller."

My family used to deal in it. While I don't know any good buyers, I can still offer some advise. First, after it's dried, get about 4 ozs weighed out on certified scales. Keep it in a ziplock bag seperate from the rest. When you go to a buyer, get it weighed first, without them knowing you've got more. You'll find out pretty quick if they are on the up and up. Also, don't hold on very long after it's "dried". It'll keep drying and you lose weight. Good luck!
