Quality Control Question: Out of all the “good” votes I got for this page last year, several of you gave it an “awful” rating. Let me know what you’d like to see done differently! All feedback is welcome – tell me what you liked, what you didn’t like and what you’d like to see in 2016 that wasn’t on 2015’s page. Thanks!

This is intended to be a running report from readers of 2015 ginseng prices. I’ll update the AR info when I get feedback from our local buyer. You report what prices you’re seeing in other states or AR, then we can all have an idea of the market as it unfolds.

AR as of 11/20/15

Newton’s in Harrison is not buying dry or fresh.

last word from Mills on 10/24/15 is that he is still not buying dry, he’s not sure but doesn’t think any of the other local buyers are either. His contact with dry ginseng in Hong Kong can’t move it there and is not buying until he can. – Mills Ginseng, Harrison AR

IA as of 12/1-15

$575, northern IA – submitted by TL

IL as of 11/12/15

550.00 for dry in southeastern Illinois. – Boxcar Waddell

IN as of 9/18/15

I’m in central Indiana. ..as 9/18/15 we’re able to get $120 wet and $420 for the good dry …everyone is digging good…but Chinese aren’t looking for it…not promising for the higher prices – Dustin Norman

KY as of 11/13/15

Kisers in Grayson, KY is at $600 lb for top

MD as of 12/10/15

We’re paying $650 per pound now at Catoctin Mtn Botanicals in Jefferson, MD. – Steve Galloway

NC root prices as of 11/12/15

Prices in nc (Mitchell co) don Phillips were at 700$ and up for good nc mtn root as of 11/12/15.looks like it might have a chance at hitting 8 by thanksgiving.best prices I’ve seen this yr. – Bob Davidson

NY and VT as of 11/30/15

I’m currently paying an average of $900/lb. for dry roots. I mainly buy Vermont roots, but I get some eastern NY diggers as well. I still pay up to $1000/lb., but only for the highest quality roots. Size/shape/color/density are all very important characteristics, but to me, the most important is age. If you send me a pic of what you consider top-grade, I’d be happy to let you know if I’m interested at $1000/lb. They would also have to be certified by the state they were collected from (added by Madison – I think this means any state except VT). – John Jacobs 603-306-4675 [email protected]

OH as of 11/13/15

Zanesville, OH. Gillogly & Son is at $625 for top grade – Bob Davidson

Besides homesteading, teaching about ginseng, growing plants & making crafty things and newsletters, I write books and stories. My sci-fantasy fiction usually takes place in a much altered Ozarks and can be found at my fiction site “http://fiction.wildozark.com“. All of the nonfiction (ginseng and nature) is at Amazon under “Madison Woods“.
