It is really hard to grow an organic pineapple. Doña Elfa has won the battle and now, she’s a true advocate of all things organic. Why? She and her co-farmers don’t have to deal with dangerous and expensive pesticides and other chemicals anymore. She also feels it’s the right thing to do; it’s her way to contribute to the greater good.
She loves her pineapples and the work so much that she and her co-owners sometimes pretend to their husbands that there is work to do. They go to the field just to have some laughs. On the payday, the women go to Cali and always buy something just for themselves.
