Who do you go to? After Chaffin shutdown buying Stamps took over in Baxter area. Not a big fan of his scales. Found Woody and seems to be a fair buyer. Never taken any early to him cause I dry mine before selling. I haven't checked to see what it is bringing yet. Anyone know? Also, anyone know of any other buyers in the upper cumberland area? There was a guy in Crossville but I lost his name and number.
Watch out for them snakes this year! They are gonna be bad.

Larry

Have you found anyone else over there besides him?
I heard there was another guy besides him in baxter but not been
able to get his name yet.
Surely there are more than two buyers for all these counties around here. Cause there are a lot of diggers still around.

I've dug up over 12 pounds this year on my property.. Slightly lower than previous years but I still have a few spots I haven't went to that normally yield a pretty good amount. I always take mine to Oak Ridge.. don't know many dealers in the Sparta area. I own some land in the hickory valley area that I lease out to a farmer. that was the property that my dad, grandpa and I use to hunt for Ginseng. He tells me a lot of the places I showed him still produces good amounts. But I let him and his relatives hunt it. Honestly I don't really care about how much I find or how much I get for it. I just love taking my children on the trip life my elders did with me.

If you were a CHRISTIAN you would not be on here talking a bad of a person he is. Christian takes what good gives them and prays for people like you.
And he is paying six for your info. and 350 for dried.
