“Our family home and orchards reside on Manoeka Road Te Puke. We recently planted 539 avo trees on a lease block and 182 trees in 2018 on our own block. Both orchards are high density planting with both Zutano and Dusa rootstocks.

“The best part about this business is being able to live a balanced work and family life while being outside with our children and teaching them good values.

“The biggest highlight is sharing and eating our homegrown avocados.”
