We grow the finest quality wild American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) in New Zealand, showing all the characteristics of the wild revered root.

Wild ginseng has higher ginsenoside levels than the cultivated root. Wild ginseng is extremely rare – we simulate the original ‘wild’ conditions to grow our ginseng, thus making them as similar as possible to the revered wild root.

Our ginseng is wild grown in the mountains of beautiful Nelson, New Zealand under the protective canopy of the forest. We individually select and harvest each root by hand.

“All healing” Ginseng

Over many centuries ginseng has been used to promote physical and mental performance, increase energy, stamina and vitality. Many overseas scientific studies have demonstrated that the ginsenosides in ginseng may assist with:

  • boosting the immune system
  • enhancement of male libido and virility
  • treatment of diabetes
  • recovery after cancer treatment



“Though grown a world away, the Mirfins’ roots look surprisingly like those produced on the hardwood hillsides of Tuckasegee, North Carolina”

This is a huge endorsement —the roots grown in Tuckasegee are renowned as some of the best in the world.
