Mera Ocotea Farm — Pastaza Province, Ecuador

The Mera Ocotea Farm occupies 120 acres in Ecuador’s Pastaza Province. The province benefits from year-round rain, the primary water source for the farm’s 5,000 Ocotea trees. This native Ecuadorian tree produces Ocotea essential oil, which contains the naturally occurring constituent alpha-humulene and is commonly used for its soothing and comforting benefits. The farm will be surrounded by wildlife corridors, which will link habitats that protect and re-establish threatened populations. The farm uses only non-GMO seeds that are cultivated through natural pollination.
