Shady Oaks Ginseng Company


 Growers of ginseng, goldenseal and native plants


   Welcome to Shady Oaks Ginseng Company



      Shady Oaks Ginseng Farm was begun in 1997 by Chris and Leslie Burdette.  We started Shady Oaks Farm as a way to eventually retire from our real jobs and stay home and make a living from here.

     The farm is located in the hills of West Virginia outside of a little town called Poca. Yes it's spelled just like poca dot and the local high school football team is called THE Dots.

     We grow our roots under a natural shade canopy in rich woods dirt. Our main product is wild simulated ginseng which if grown properly will grow to look wild and for all intents and purposes is like wild if nothing is added to enhance growth.

     We started with wild simulated ginseng and goldenseal and have now expanded to include Black Cohosh, Blue Cohosh, Jack-in-the-pulpits, Bloodroot, Trillium, Maidenhair Ferns, True and False Solomonseal, and Wild Geranium.

     Along with our 1 and 2 year wild simulated ginseng rootlets we have ginseng seeds. The market for good wild simulated ginseng sold as dry root has been good the last few years with some even reaching wild price.

      We now have our blueberry nursery up and running and if you are interested just check out our other site www.shadyoaksblueberry.com.

      If all goes well we will be offering heirloom daffodill bulbs and Iris for sale in 2015.
