Wisconsin: Cheese, Beer & Ginseng?
Posted by Christine Hurt

Wisconsinquarter A year ago, I was getting a manicure in a southwestern state, and my manicurist asked me where I lived.  When I told him that I lived in Wisconsin, he got very excited and asked me if I could send him some ginseng.  He told me Wisconsin was famous for ginseng, but I had not heard of this before.  So, this morning, the WSJ has an article on Wisconsin ginseng farmers!  Apparently, even though the ginseng market has grown, ginseng farmers from Wisconsin are struggling to compete against inferior Chinese ginseng falsely labelled as "Wisconsin ginseng."  Maybe ginseng should have been on the Wisconsin quarter!
