The Farm at Sunnyside - Tuesday October 20th Lineup

Certified organic produce from The Farm at Sunnyside, which is just 75 miles from Washington DC. The large veggie bag is great for the person who eats most veggie-filled meals at home or the couple who cooks some meals at home!

Soup season is here for sure accompanied by the changing leaves and dropping temperatures. With this pack you could make a creamy cauliflower or sweet potato soup. Add a generous amount of garlic to either and chopped fennel to the cauliflower soup. Make an herby sauce to swirl in at the end. For a side salad, roast the delicata and beets. Pile onto a bowl of chopped radicchio and generously dress with a lemon-anchovy dressing. Add hard-boiled eggs or goat cheese to finish it off! 

The Large Veggie Box for Tuesday 10/20 will delight you with:

  • 1 bunch parsley or lemon thyme - Parsley is more than a pretty garnish, blitz up into a zingy sauce with garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. Lemon thyme is like regular thyme, just citrusy! Goes well with roasted root veggies.
  • 1 head lettuce or 1 bag greens mix - You know what to do with this one - toss the greens together with roasted CAULIFLOWER and drizzle with a TURMERIC dressing.
  • 1 head radicchio - Colorful and bitter, this cold-season vegetable shines when paired with citrus, creamy cheese, or balsamic vinegar. Make a salad with roasted DELICATA and BEETS.
  • 1 head fennel - Anise-y and fresh, fennel's sweetness is concentrated when roasted. Pairs well with BEETS and onions. 
  • 1 delicata squash - A farmer favorite! As the name suggests, these winter squash have a delicate skin and don't need to be peeled. Scoop out the seeds and roast slices with olive oil, salt, and pepper. 
  • 1 head garlic -  A clove of garlic a day keeps the doctor away? In any case it's delicious and spruces up any dish!
  • 1 bunch beets - Earthy and sweet, beets are a sweet addition to any meal. Roast in chunks or slice super thinly on a mandoline and toss with your favorite grain and some soft cheese. 
  • 1.5-2 lbs sweet potatoes - We can't deny fall is here when sweet potatoes show up! Orange and sweet, these tubers roast up beautifully to top a salad or rice bowl. 
  • 1 head cauliflower - White, or sometimes purple, this gorgeous brassica is delicious roasted or cooked into a creamy soup with GARLIC. 
The Farm at Sunnyside is managed by Stacey and Casey. We first met them at the Arlington Farmers Market in 2013 when starting Number 1 Sons. Stacey and Casey are phenomenal farmers and managers tending to the health of their land, soil, staff and our community with their nutritious + delicious vegetables.

The Farm at Sunnyside borders the Shenandoah National Park - read more about their conservation efforts on their website. We love visiting Sunnyside and learning about cover crops, compost, field rotation, food safety processes, and working with a seasonal farm staff - Stacey and Casey excel at all these things!

The farm may substitute veggies if they run out. This happens rarely, but does happen from time time. Produce is measured by weight, so quantity may vary slightly from pictures. Sorry, we can't offer substitutions right now. Sunny Side
