Shady Oaks Farm
Native plants grown close to home
What began as a way to supplement his income, has literally blossomed into a full time job for Chris Burdette of Putnam County. Shady Oaks Ginseng Farm is located in the hills of West Virginia near Poca. Chris grows high quality wild simulated ginseng and goldenseal roots. With ginseng roots grown in a wild simulated style you will end up with roots that have the look and quality of wild ginseng. The roots are grown under a natural shade canopy in rich woods dirt to obtain a wild looking type of ginseng root. Shady Oaks Farm also offers goldenseal rootlets, ginseng seeds and a limited supply of bloodroot, black cohosh, blue cohosh, wild geranium, trillium, maidenhair ferns, and jack-in-the-pulpits. The newest addition to the farm is the blueberry nursery which began shipping in the spring of 2004.
