    i have far more hawthorn polluting the property than anyone should allow. they are loaded with berries. i was wondering if it is possible to sell them. i know the processed product is widely available online and even at walmart.

    does anyone have a "heads up" to a buyer of the berries or any info on how i can find one?

    i know i have an acre or more of loaded trees and nothing is ever sprayed.

    real hawthorn...where do you live? I wish it would grow here. I would contact people like Dr. Richard Schulze, he makes remedies to sell. too bad you can not tincture a vat of them and sell them at a huge profit. Hope you find a market.

    real hawthorn...funny you said that. i researched them and there are only about 200 species, lol. the ones most used are a west coast variety...i forget the name off hand but it is normally listed on the homeopathic websites that sell the tinctures and capsules. mine are most likely "LaValle" hawthorn. i need to find out if they are used like the variety i saw being sold online.
