You dig up wild ginseng?

Our State was stripped of wild ginseng because too many people did just that. (very rare now)

The Michigan Ginseng Act was passed in 1994 to regulate the harvest, sale, and distribution of American Ginseng in Michigan. This act covers both cultivated and wild ginseng, and makes it unlawful to take American ginseng from the wild. Those interested in farming ginseng should contact the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) for more information.
