Agribusiness

It started with dairy...

...but that was just the beginning. Agribusiness is undeniably the industry that helped establish our strong, innovative economic development traditions. Agribusiness in Marathon County leads the way in production (we are the highest volume milk producing county in Wisconsin), diverse crops (everything from soybeans to ginseng), advanced-efficiency farming techniques, eco-friendly research, technologies, packaging and biofuel production from crop residues. What’s next on our agribusiness radar? Take a look.

For the past year or so, Marathon County-grown ginseng has been available to customers at upscale shops at a handful of international airports, and a local distributor now is sending a full-time employee to manage some of those sales in Hong Kong.
All products will be purchased from the Ginseng and Herb Cooperative, a Wausau-based association representing Wisconsin ginseng producers.
The agribusiness industry is in a holding pattern. Last year, Congress signed food safety legislation, but has yet to fund it.
