Mālama is the Hawaiian word for protect, preserve, and nurture.

This serves as the standard for all that we do.

Benjamin Lillibridge

Founder & Funguy 


In 2015, Ben produced his first Hawaiian-grown mushroom fruits in an old lava cave in Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. His mushroom mission has only expanded from there. Ben now creates fun, friendly, easy-to-use medicinal (or fung-tional) mushroom products. He is working on studying the native mushrooms of Hawai'i, identifying novel chemical compounds in them, and hopefully sharing that with the world.
