Asking the People Who Care

If we don’t ask, we never receive the answer.

We are asking for HELP. The land that we brew and bottle MamaZing Kombucha on, that we get our beautiful Spring water to make the Kombucha from, and that we live on is in immediate need of refinancing. We have been trying all year and then some with banks, mortgage brokers and second tier lenders. Their answer has been no due to reasons we can’t relate to. We need loans, donations, land partners, or investors. As soon as possible.

We have been trying to start crowd funding campaigns and are working on this for business and land projects. But time is restrictive and it seems to take ages to set up. Coming soon though.

MamaZing is buzzing and growing fast. We can’t currently keep up with stock as it is in such high demand. This land has so much potential for so many things to happen and people to learn and experience on. We plan retreat roundhouses, (Jo builds roundhouses), medicinal and subtropical gardens (We already grow bananas, some herbs, and are experienced growers of medicine, sculpture gardens, a new Kombuchery roundhouse, and an education centre.

We need the funds to refinance so we can stay here and do this!! We landed her in the Faraway North of New Zealand on this land for many reasons. And we are meant to be here. If we have to uproot everything, MamaZing will suffer drastically and may not survive. And we will also suffer. This is a call for financial assistance. This is a call for support. This is a call for a MamaZing team to form.

The investment potential is pretty awesome if you are looking for something to put your money into to help grow. The land share potential is awesome, as the land is 50 acres and has multiple house sites. (And Jo builds roundhouses and teaches. See MudWood Shelters FB page or our website) The education and sharing potential on this land is great. The growing potential is amazing as most of the land is north facing. And we are subtropical. Anyone that can assist? Please message us. This is an immediate need. Thanks much. Arohanui. Jo and Amira The Papa and Mama of the Zing.

Here are some photos of this magical place. Please help us hold this space for all of those who will come and experience it and those will experience from afar!

Meet the Family

The MamaZing Kombucha family is full of lively Herbs that are beneficial to the body and tasty in their unique ways. We start with luscious Spring water from our land, brew in Oak barrels with our healthy, organically raised SCOBYs, traditional and carefully sourced Teas and organic, Fair trade cane Sugar. We culture our brews long in their lovingly warm Kombuchery. Our brewing process ensures the healthiest, tastiest Kombucha we can create. Once it is brewed in the first Oak barrel with its mother culture, we move the Kombucha into the infusion barrel for a second ferment. This is where we add the fresh and dried, all organic Herbs. Some are from our land and as much as possible sourced locally or direct. Once this infusion is complete, we bottle the brew and condition for optimal Zing!

Our Herbal combinations have been created by us here at MamaZing. Us being, Amira and Jo MudWood, the Mama and Papa of the Zing. We take our MamaZing brews to local markets and select events. We sell through resonant outlets and places we know MamaZing is needed or appreciated.

With the effervescence of a Cider or Champagne, the excitement of a Ginger Beer or fizzy drink, complex taste of a fine drink, and refreshing nature of a juice or water, MamaZing Kombucha is a Zing for all times. MamaZing is also a Herbal Elixir and is a wonderful way to ingest nature’s potions.
