We are a zero waste business

We hate to see food wasted so whenever we have surplus produce it gets donated to charity food banks around Taupō.

If you're in the Taupō area and know your box gets delivered by the Misfit van, you're in luck! We will collect your old boxes and put them to use again, leave them out for us in a dry spot on delivery day.
