We source produce straight from the farm. This is ungraded and a mix of all shapes and sizes. Once produce leaves a farm it is subject to a grading process (this sorts the produce into 'pretty' and 'not so pretty'). Supermarkets will always take the 'pretty' things. By buying straight from the source we are skipping this grading process! This means you can expect a mix of all shapes and sizes in your boxes - things that wouldn't pass the grading process (and some beauitful produce that would!)
We operate with a clear order of priority for our suppliers; we will always prioritise produce that would otherwise go to waste. All of our produce will be seasonal from Waikato & Hawke's Bay farms. Despite our best efforts, we may sometimes have to source from the wholesale market floors and farms that are not super local to our location. Our criteria for our suppliers has to be balanced with wanting to offer enough variety and consistency for our Misfit customers.
We aim to reduce our environmental impact as much as possible and so we will always offer the most environmentally sustainable option.

Our aim is to provide 10-15% of our produce to local charities and food banks around Taupō and the surrounds. We are proudly helping out the local Kai Pantries, Taupō Baptist Church, Tūrangi Food Bank, Te Korowhai and the retiree social housing on Rifle Range Road. We will also be helping Belllyful fulfil their local deliveries to Tūrangi soon.
We have been enjoying working alongside the Baptist Church, who provide hot meals every Monday evening.
We donate 100% of our suplus produce, meaning we are a waste-free business! Zero Waste = Happy Misfit Garden Team!
Some of your box will be organic and some will be spray-free, but we don’t yet do completely organic boxes. Our main priority right now is to reduce waste as that comes from all types of vegetable production.
