This box is your vegetable shop done for you!
This is our smallest size, we estimate it will feed 1 adult for approximately a week.
These boxes are a Little Farms collaboration.
We have teamed up with two other organic farms in the Wairarapa, in order 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.
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 varieties such as cabbage, carrots, onions.
The pictures are an indication of what you can expect at different times of the year. The first picture was the Little box in winter, the second picture was the Little box in early spring and the third picture is the Little box in late spring.
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.

I thought the lettuce too tough and quite wilted. Bok choy wilted in the crisper bin, way too much basil. I personally dont like rhubarb. That also softened quickly. Spring onions quite big, ok but no real flavour when in salad.
Amazing service, beautiful seasonal produce, bonus in supporting a local business
The produce is beautiful and you are eating 100% nutritional goodness. Highly recommnend! The Little Farm people are also very generous with their knowledge and share their learnings with the community so happy to support them by buying from them.
I enjoyed the freshness and quality of the vegetables in box and will order again sometime.
We are excited to get our vege box each week. Love the variety and low cost of these high quality organic vegetables. The food tastes great and we feel the health benefits of this organic and locally grown food. We feel fortunate to have such a fabulous option of garden to table food. Exceptional communication from the team too. Ngā mihi
