Each week, we take the time to list out all of the possible produce items that you get in your delivery and translate them into recipe ideas for your meal planning inspiration. 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!
Produce Box Vegetables: Summer Squash
“I love this salad over sliced tomatoes with burrata or crumbled Valbreso feta, or as a complement to any protein. The herbs can be swapped for any herbs of your choice. Rotating the squash on the grill before turning allows for a little more char.”
Produce Box Vegetables: Melon
“This Watermelon Agua Fresca (also known as Agua de Sandia) is a light and refreshing summer drink made with only 3 ingredients – watermelon, water and a touch of sugar!” Feel free to subsitute any melon for watermelon and adjust sugar content based on the sweetness of the melon.

“This creamy, plant-powered dish is both hearty and light at the same time. Spaghetti squash – with its buttery texture and angel-hair tendrils – is a delectable way to mix up your traditional pasta plate. All covered in a smooth garlicky, roasted red pepper sauce and topped with Italian herbs!”
