Ginseng farming can be quite profitable as long as you're prepared to wait a few years for the harvest.

Yeah, and if you can even grow it. I had some family members who tried(unsuccessfully) to grow it once. It seems to require a special environment, or they just had brown thumbs.

It is very profitable if you have the right soil and proper growing conditions. In fact, I just sold a wild root for $2800.00. Yes that's two-thousand and eight-hundred dollars for a single root. It was 132+ years old and over a foot long, weighed 1.5 ounces.
Wish I knew how to post a picture here.
