Ginseng Season; Know the laws and make sure your lisenced.

The harvest season for Ginseng the plant called "green gold" has started in this state of Wisconsin.

The state publishes a handout on the laws and regulations for harvesting and selling wild ginseng.

You can read these pamplets at this website

Make sure that wherever you harvest this big money maker that you follow all the rules and requirements for each state that you forage in. The fines can be substantial for not being in compliant.

Many of the buyers are listed in the yellow pages of your phone book, for markets to sell too. Call them and ask if there are any handling procedures that they require, before you start your harvest.

Our harvest season here in Wisconsin is from 1 September until 1 November. You can sell your harvest later then the posted harvest time frame from 1 September to 1 March.

I have more on this valuable commodity and will post it in the next few days.  Today's post is just a heads up and get legal notice.

Yours in Wild Harvest Profits success.
