Specializing in aged woodsgrown root
Great Lakes Ginseng farm is located in remote hardwood forests near the shores of Lake Superior in Northern Michigan. By growing our ginseng under the natural canopy of hardwood forests, the root takes on the characteristics of wild ginseng. Each year the root remains in the ground increases its wild properties and medicinal effects.
In fall 2012 we harvested 14- and 15-year-old root and all of this root has been sold. Because of a critical family illness, we were unable to offer ginseng powder or small quantities of root in 2012.
We purchased our farm in 2005 and began a planting program in 2006. Since then we have been harvesting woodsgrown ginseng planted by the previous owner and will harvest the last of this ginseng in 2013. This will be a very small harvest and the root has already been committed to one of our long-time buyers.
In 2014 we will begin harvesting 8-year-old ginseng from one of the gardens we planted in 2006 and at that time will be in a position to supply a much greater quantity of mixed-grade woodsgrown roots as well as powder and low-grade roots. We apologize for the shortage of products in 2012 and 2013 because of family illness and a gap in planting by the previous owners. We appreciate the business of all our past customers and look forward to doing business with you again in fall of 2014.
