This box was the original box we started with, back in 2021 when we were just dabbling in vegetable boxes. Formerly known as the Classic Box, the Original is a medium sized box, containing 8-9 different types of produce and estimated to be about the right amount to feed 2 adults for a week.

All our boxes are Little Farms collaborations with 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/Silverbeet/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 silverbeet 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 and zucchini, and in Winter, vegetables like cabbage, carrots and onions.

The pictures are an indication of what you can expect at different times of the year. The first picture is the Original box in Summer, the second picture is in Autumn, the third picture is late Spring, the forth picture is in Winter and the video of the Original box is taken in late Summer.

As our boxes are seasonal and local, we offer 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 only 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.

DIETARY REQUIREMENTS 

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

Please consider subscribing to our boxes.

For a farm to be truly sustainable it needs to be resilient, so that it can keep operating into the future. We find that with the change of seasons orders yo-yo up and down, making it hard for us to cover costs in the low times and meet demand in the ups. Therefore, it is really helpful for us, if you subscribe to our Farm Boxes. This helps us plan how much to grow and gives us some financial stability so that we can invest in our farm long term with the security that we will be able to sell the food we grow. Local food is a partnership between the farmers and the customers. Thank you for choosing to be be our partner in this dance & therefore helping us to create a more resilient local food system.

Lovely and fresh

Loving our box of veges from We Are Little Farms. Everything is so fresh and tasty, and it’s great to be able to support local businesses. We’re maybe getting a few too many unions! But it’s making us creative.

Delish!

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!
