If you ever find yourself with too many apples, or no idea what to do with radishes, you can always message us on Facebook or Instagram to chat with a Farmhouse employee! We will get back to you with recipe ideas, meal prep guidance, or just a friendly hello!


Skip The Junk: Better Broccoli Casserole

Bushel Vegetables: SpinachKale/Collards/ChardBroccoli

Classic broccoli casserole, without all of the junk! Swap rice for protein-rich quinoa and canned condensed soup for real deal cheesy goodness. You can also toss in some wilted greens like spinach, kale, collards or chard to bulk up the veggies in this recipe. This bake can also be made ahead, just reserve the breadcrumb mixture just before baking. Recipe Credit: Cookie and Kate


Winter Salads: Roasted Beet, Fennel, and Citrus Salad

Bushel Vegetables: Beets, fennel, oranges, grapefruit, lettuce, radish

See ya later summer, winter really is the time for beautiful produce to shine in complex salads. Roasted beets, segmented citrus, and shaved fennel come together in this sweet and textured salad. You can also toss in any extra radishes and substitute oranges for grapefruit segments interchangeably.  Recipe Credit: Splendid Table


Cozy Up: Bok Choy & Turnip Miso-Ramen with Soy Sauce Eggs

Bushel Vegetables: Baby Bok Choy, pea shoots, Carrots, Green Onions, turnips

Who can resist ramen during a cold front? This cozy bowl is filled to the brim with noodles and complemented with fresh turnips and chopped bok choy. Garnish with beautiful pea shoots, shredded carrots, and chopped onions to use up the extra bushel goods. If you’re not cool with wheat noodles, substitute brown rice linguine noodles for similar texture. Recipe Credit: Dishing Up the Dirt
