Our Plantation

Experienced and authentic.

That’s our promise to you. We have years of expertise and history in Hawaii. Established over 100 years ago in 1905, Wood Valley Ranch survived as a lush, tropical habitat for exotic plants and is recognized throughout the Hawaiian Islands.

In 2005, genius struck. Supplied by the purest water in the world, the most fertile volcanic soil, and a perfectly mild climate, this Garden of Eden had the perfect combination of micronutrients for mamaki. A plantation was born.

The Wood Valley Plantation flourishes today as the first and only certified plantation of the exclusive Hawaiian grown mamaki, rich in polyphenol antioxidants and minerals. Purchase supreme quality mamaki for your health with absolute confidence that you have the best in the world.  

That’s our promise to you.

Water

Vitality. Life. Essence. These all originate from the pure, pristine waters of Hawaii. This clear, bubbling water is the source that our mamaki plants drink passing on that vitality to you. 

Hawaiian water is repeatedly classified by the latest scientific evidence as some of the purest and safest water in the world. Rainfall at higher elevations is in its purest form, because it has not been defiled by contaminates. Our plantation is situated at the ideal elevation of 2,300 feet for abundant, clean rainfall.

Rainwater that does seep through the soil absorbs the rich, abundant nutrients supplied by the volcanic soil and is purified. Water that contains the specific nutrients imparted through volcanic lava is rare and therefore highly desirable as a water source for Mamaki.

Volcanic Soil

You feed your body on the best things. If soil is the food of plants, then we require only the best. According to research on Volcanoes by U.S. Geological Survey, volcanic materials ultimately break down to form some of the most fertile soils on earth. These soils contain rich nutrients, scarce trace elements, and exotic minerals, which are all passed through to the plant.

A study published in Macmillian Magazines is quoted, “The chemical characteristics of Hawaiian lavas differ substantially from those of average continental crust” providing exceptional nutrient value in our mamaki.  When you sip our perfect cup of tea, your body receives all the goodness of those rare nutrients from the exotic Hawaiian lava.
