Bio: Loy, S.'s Ginseng Garden (1910)

----Sources: Marshfield Times Wednesday 18 May 1910


The Clark County Ginseng Company held a meeting Monday and declared a dividend of $500. The garden was begun six years ago on S. Loy's land north of the city on Black river. At the beginning the efforts of the company were exerted in planting seeds and protecting and cultivating the young plants. Last fall the first crop of roots was harvested, which has just recently been sold. They have now on hand a considerable amount of stratified seed which will be a source of income, and each fall from now on a portion of the garden will be dug and the roots sold. It looks as it were to become a very profitable industry and one capable of great expansion--Neillsville Rep. & Press.
