Located in Wausau, Wisconsin U.S.A. – the heart of ginseng country, Hsu’s Ginseng is the largest American ginseng farming and retail operation in the United States. Paul C. Hsu, the first Chinese grower in North America, has been growing, selling and exporting the highest quality American ginseng since 1974 and currently has over 1,000 acres of prime ginseng farmland available for cultivation.
