Those are units of measure. AFAIK not much used except for farm produce. Somewhat similar to saying
A liter - That's 10 whole deciliters - of ....
except a bushel is a basket size
I'm guessing you didn't mention the context very well and it's a pun on the work "peck" used for a "quick kiss"?

I think it's just a way of expressing "many thanks".
Bushel and Peck are units of volume.
In the US system:
1 bushel = 35.24 litres
1 peck = 8.809768 litres
