Kashrus information on FRESH BOX FARMS Hydroponically Grown products

June 30, 2017 from the KVH

FRESH BOX FARMS PRODUCTS, Millis, MA are grown in a state of the art HYDROPONIC indoor facility.
Unlike other Kosher certified produce that requires washing and/or checking to remove natural occurring insect infestation, Fresh Box Farms has controls in place under strict KVH Kosher supervision that prevent any type of insect infestation.
As with any kosher product, always check to ensure the (KVH) kosher symbol is displayed
Please Note: Since this hydropnic produce is not grown in soil there are opinions that maintain that the blessing of בורא פרי האדמה is no longer applicable and שהכל נהיה בדברו should be recited instead.
Please consult with your personal Halachik authority to determine how to best proceed.
There is no Halachik need to wash and check the produce.
Fresh Box Farms products are currently available at:

  • The Butcherie-428 Harvard St, Brookline, MA
  • Zayde's Market- 15 Washington St, Canton, MA
  • Roche Bros. stores including: 1800 Centre St, West Roxbury, MA |70 Hastings St, Wellesley, MA | 25 Washington St, North Easton, MA
