Hello everyone. This year is proving to be a good one so far. This root pictured come from a four prong plant that stood knee high. Went out yesterday for maybe two hours and found a good 35 plants. We have close to 200 acres here (Southern Ohio) and digging has not happened for several years. Giving roots time to come back. Happy hunting everyone!
Thank you very much. Where do I find the prices on these and other roots?
I would like to know myself. One would think that some dealer here and there in each state would have contacts with overseas buyers that pay us a fair amount below the actual worth of special roots so they can still make some profit above just weight price. Seems around here they only pay for the roots at \"face value\" (weight) and never for what the unique ones are worth. I think they mostly want to pay the digger/grower just for the weight price of the whole lot brought to them and then they pick them (man roots, huge old roots, etc.) out and sell them for the big jack whilst keeping us in the dark.
I mean, if this wasn't the case, wouldn't there be dealers getting on here asking us to sell the unique roots to them?? Conspiracy, I say, conspiracy!
