Fight food waste with a delivery of Misfit fruit & veg in Tauranga

We are a Tauranga subscription box with a conscience; we connect farmers and every day kiwis closer together.

Instead of telling growers what we want (which is how the food system usually works) we speak to them each week to find out what is already grown and what is needing a home.

In your Misfit Box you can expect the 'too big', the 'too small', the 'too misfit', as well as some damn fresh produce (the way it's meant to be!)

How does it work?


    We believe in paying fairly for high quality fruit and veg. We chat to farmers & wholesalers to find the too big, too small, and too many.

    As the majority of our produce comes straight from the farm, you can guarantee it's as fresh as it gets!

  • TO BOX

    We carefully sort & pack the produce into a Misfit Garden box, load them into our van and deliver straight to your front door in Tauranga.

    In your box you can expect, delicious, farm fresh produce (and some funny looking Misfits too!)


    Make sure you check out the flyer in your box! We tell you how best to store your Misfits, and even give you recipe ideas. Dinner is served!


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 Central North Island and your box gets delivered by our epic Misfit van, you're in luck! Leave your old boxes out for us to collect and use again!

And they are a brilliant little team that work so hard to improve themselves every day. They even allow me to ask for extra available off cuts to feed my rabbit!”
