In 1909, the Burmeister Ginseng company was formed in Marathon County Wisconsin. It is the world’s top producer of cultivated American Ginseng. It’s legacy has been passed down through generations. One of the Burmeister grandsons shared with me that the American Ginseng species is of better quality then the Chinese. In fact, many Chinese buy American ginseng from them, and end up selling their Chinese ginseng to the Americans!
