Wisconsin ginseng producer hits jackpot
A Wisconsin ginseng producer and processor had a lucky break to end 2021 thanks to a victory by his favorite football team. Owner Will Hsu of Hsu’s Ginseng near Wausau, Wisconsin beat out 180-thousand other fantasy football players to win Draft King’s Millionaire Maker game.
Less than 24 hours after winning, Hsu has already donated to the University of Wisconsin Foundation and several local charities.
Hsu oversees the family businesses including more than 80 employees managing 400 acres of cultivated ginseng, ginseng processing, herbal products, compost and soil sales, and over a thousand acres of cropland.
A victory Sunday by the Green Bay Packers over the Baltimore Ravens helped seal the Draft King’s win for Hsu.
