The best childhood memories are made of muddy fingers and gumboots in puddles, where seasonal fruit is grown to be tasted and trees become the greatest playground. At Little Farmer, we help you create those precious moments in nature for your child through our monthly educational gardening boxes. Packed with fun, facts and plenty of love, our boxes help your child develop confidence and a lifelong bond with the outdoors.
You can subscribe to our gardening boxes as a year-long adventure or gifted as one off presents for birthdays or Christmas, a school project or special welcome from a new baby to their older sibling.

My girls were thrilled to get a package addressed to them personally. They couldn't wait to open it and explore the contents. They had fun working together to make the butterfly treats (and sampling them too) and kept checking all day to see whether the butterflies had come yet. Looking forward to trying the next activity!
Best subscription I've ever bought, we get so much joy out of it.
Really cool, such a great activity for a wide range of children. I love how much detail has gone into this. Love the info cards! The instructions are all there for you, and you only need to supply a few things yourself. So cool!
Boxes will be posted by the 4th of each month.
If you have placed your order before the last day of the month you will be sent out the next month's box by the 4th of the month.
3 packets of seeds (with just enough seeds inside to ensure they get to grow 2 of each plant - we don't want them creating a jungle in your house!)
6 plant pellets to start the seeds off in, so that they can get planting right away
An information sheet for each plant about how to get started, plus facts about the plant
2 nature activities plus some supplies
A fun quiz to see how much they have learnt!
Sorry, due to biosecurity regulations these boxes can't be shipped outside of New Zealand.
Yes, you can! If you want the latest box select the 'month to month' subscription option. When you tick that it is a gift, it will change it to non auto renewing. Otherwise you can select a box from the 'one off box' section of the website.
Our boxes suit children from the age of 3 to around 10 years old.
No, I select seeds that will usually also be able to be grown in pots.
