“A little food, a little fun; a little soul, a little sun; a little green, a little grow… The Little Veggie Patch Co.”

If you haven’t guessed it yet, the Little Veggie Patch Co (LVPC) is a business dedicated to helping people grow food with their range of seeds, seed kits, posters and books. 

Whether you are a garden lover, looking for a new hobby or you want to eat healthier and waste less, the LVPC encourages you to make the most out of growing food regardless of your skill set and available space! If this sounds like you, keep reading.

The Little Veggie Patch Co Mission

If you think about gardening your head will often take you straight to…questions like “Will I have time to do this or do I have enough space?” The LVPC have really knuckled down on these two major concerns that surround gardening and created a solution to suit small space gardening, and, in a time savvy way. 

The LVPC are super passionate about the slow food movement and raising awareness about the origins of our produce. Their mission is to remind people to be more mindful about the foods they consume and to encourage them to grow fresh, better-tasting produce at home. The LVPC have catered for small spaced gardening styles, so now, it doesn’t matter if you live in an apartment or have a block of land - growing your own produce is made easier.

Here at F&F we love hearing about small businesses doing well. In 2009, the LVPC started with just four varieties of vegetable seeds. Now the range has over 50 varieties and continues to grow with the demand for heirloom seeds.

LVPC are really passionate about keeping food alive! These days processed food is everywhere, so the mission of informing people of home grown taste, is super important. They want to ensure that a tomato for example tastes like a tomato. Growing fruit and veg and being able to pick it off your tree, truly encompasses that real food experience. That’s one of the reasons why LVPC sells a range of plant seeds, and they sure do deliver on taste!
