Why Wisconsin Ginseng?

Wisconsin has cool summers, rolling hills and virgin soil to grow highly potent American ginseng. Producers in Wisconsin also have generations of growing experience. Their hard work and advanced farming practices produce the world's highest quality cultivated ginseng.


Wisconsin Ginseng is known as the highest-quality panax quinquefolius in the world and has the reputation for the best quality in the world.

The United States has strict pesticide usage standards for agricultural products. Pesticides used on Wisconsin-grown American Ginseng have satisfied rigorous safety tests established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Recently, the Ginseng Board of Wisconsin has worked extensively to develop U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) grading standards for cultivated American ginseng to assure the marketplace of consistency in ginseng produced.

Additionally, Wisconsin Ginseng contains very high ginsenoside (the active ingredient) levels. Comparatively speaking, Wisconsin Ginseng generally averages higher levels of ginsenoside than panax quinquefolius grown outside of the United States. Wisconsin Ginseng also offers the highly-desired bitter taste. This unique taste gives Wisconsin Ginseng the reputation for the best quality in the world.

The GBW is managed by an elected board of seven Ginseng producers. The board functions under a marketing order managed by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection.
