This box is your vegetable shop done for you!
This is our large-medium size, we estimate it will feed 2 vegetable loving adults or a small family for approximately a week.
These boxes are a Little Farms collaboration. We have teamed up with four 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.
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 vanities 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 Whanau box in spring 2022 and the second picture was the Whanau box in Winter 2022.
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.

We’ve only ordered the whanau box once when we had extended whanau over and we loved the variety and quality. Such beautiful produce. Thankyou so much!
Lovely fresh box of veges delivered to our door. I appreciate the little touches like the lettuce being washed sometimes or the odd bit of fruit. I do find there to be a lot of herbs, personal preference I guess. My only other feedback would be that for a family size box ideally they’d be a family-sized serving of each vegetable rather than single items but possibly that’s just due to availability of items. Thanks Little Farms for your hard work
Recently we held a Sustainability event at the library and a staff member from Little Farms showed those present how to make a No Dig Garden. After the event we presented the whānau box to our prize drawer winner, who was absolutely thrilled to receive this gift box packed with beautiful fresh vegetables. Thank you Little Farms.
We love receiving our whanau box. It’s always such a surprise at what we are going to get and I love being creative in the kitchen with the beautiful produce.
Couldn’t recommend enough!
One of the gifts of moving to Wellington having access to the LITTLE FARMS WHĀNAU vege box. Each box has a great variety, of seasonal veggies and some new things to try and experiment with. We love that it is fresh, local, organic and free of packaging. The whānau box is excellent value for such top quality produce. We also love the extras we can add to our box each week! If you are serious about quality nutritional food like us, we highly recommend these boxes. Thanks LITTLE FARMS💛
