Over the last four years, we have planted over 25 lbs of ginseng seed and have transplanted over 1,500 wild and wild-simulated plants onto native forest lands. Ginseng leaves are harvested between July and September when the foliage is the most bioactive. The leaves are then dried and ground by hand. Traditionally, ginseng leaves and stems are discarded when harvesting the root. Our goal is to harvest leaves and produce tea from the plants until roots reach optimal size & age for harvest (over 10 years old).
