Nantahala Farm & Garden in North Carolina 828-321-9036 claims to have comfrey plants that they will dig fresh for shipping.
They have different types and roots cost about $5.00 each from what I read.

I have no idea what a fair price would be because it seems that it is not a run of the mill plant to find. I think I would rather pay a bit more to be sure I have fresh roots that will grow than get a bargin that is worthless I guess. Good luck.
