Weeks into the Christmas celebration and the Maoate family is encouraging families to eat healthy and live healthy.

The family have been busy opposite the CITC supermarket at the Avatiu road side selling fresh pineapples.

Papa John and Mama Anne sell their fresh produce right next to their son Paara of Kupono Farms who sells organic pineapples- naturally fertilised.

While they sell at the roadside on Friday and Saturdays, they also sell their produce from Monday to Thursday’s from 9am to 3pm at their home in Titikaveka.

They have been growing pineapples for more than 20 years.
