Benson Ginseng Farm

About Us

We are a family owned Ginseng Farm, based in Northwestern Wisconsin.

At Benson Ginseng we specialize in the growing of Woods Grown Wisconsin Ginseng. We grow our crop in the forest in a natural way under the canopy of the hardwood trees. Woods grown roots are sought after for their wild appearance. We grow our woods grown plant under the same conditions as native ginseng would naturally occur.

This fall we will also be buying Wild Ginseng locally as dealers.

We are now accepting pre-orders for Fall of 2017 shipping of Ginseng Rootlets. One thru two year old rootlets. Until sold out. Place your orders early to guarantee delivery for fall planting.

Shipping of Pre paid orders will begin the 2nd week of Sept.
