The Original

Regular price $45.00 NZD
Regular price Sale price $45.00 NZD
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

This box was the original box we started off with in 2021 when we were just dabbling in  vegetable boxes. It is a medium sized box, estimated to be about the right amount of for 2 adults for a week. Contains 10-11 different types of produce. 

All our boxes are Little Farms collaborations with two other organic farms in the Wairarapa, this enables us to provide you with a box filled with variety all year round.

The staples in this box are:

Lettuce- The type of lettuce leaf changes with the seasons, but what doesn't change is how crunchy and fresh the salad is.

Kale/Chard/Spinach bunch - Your weekly greens all bundled up together ready for sandwiches, juicing, lasagna and everything else! The mix varies seasonally, in summer we have more chard and in winter more spinach.

Seasonal goodies:

The rest of the box is a mix of seasonal vegetables and even fruits. In summer you can expect vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumber, zucchini and in winter vegetables like cabbage, carrots, onions.

The pictures are an indication of what you can expect at different times of the year. The first picture was the Original box in early spring, the second the Original box in late spring, the third the box in Winter and the video the box in late summer. 

As our boxes are seasonal and local, we only have what is in season in the Wairarapa. This means we won't have your staple vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and tomatoes in the boxes every week, instead they will be in our boxes when they are growing in the Wairarapa. We find this seasonality really beautiful as it makes you appreciate when things are in season and connects you to the seasonal flow of nature.


If there is a particular vegetable you can not eat, leave a note at checkout when you order and we will try our best to keep it out of your box.

Our vege box is a hit every week! I think its great that its pushed us to use a couple of things I wouldn't usually buy and therefore let the kids try something new.
I love how fresh everything is, the variety, and super duper love knowing that I'm supporting a local business and a variety of local growers. Thanks for making it possible team!

I love these vegetable boxes for their great value, and quality. This is how we should be eating. Fresh, local, seasonal, and of course organic.

Super impressed!

I ordered my first box this week after thinking about doing so for a few months now. I have no regret! Everything is so fresh and lush looking. The variety actually exceeded my expectations. The new South Wai pickup point is very handy too!

In support of little farms

I've never written a review before but was moved to after reading one on here that I felt was a very harsh and unfair. I have been receiving and enjoying little farms veggie boxes for around a year now and I enjoy the variety and seasonal surprises that each weekly box brings. I know the people who run little farms personally and have no doubt over their ethics and feel their business comes from the heart. Changing the food system is hard with supermarkets that import, over-price food and under-cut local growers.
Thank you Little Farms for all you do!
Looking forward to the summer boxes with tomatoes and cucumbers!
